& # 39; I don't know if it's my place to congratulate my ex-fiance on her new marriage, but I certainly did that from a distance, & # 39; told Higgins, 30 ,. U.S Wednesday. & # 39; I wish them nothing but the best. But no, I did not reach her to wish her anything. I think that's a little weird. & # 39;

No hard feelings: the bachelor alum Ben Higgins, 30, (L, with girlfriend Jessica Clarke, says he is happy for his former fiancée Lauren Bushnell, 29, after her marriage to country artist Chris Lane, 34, last week
He added to Bushnell, 29: & I know that she is now clearly a married woman. She's with Chris and I'm with Jessica. & # 39;
Higgins appeared in early 2016 on the 20th season of the show and introduced Bushnell in the season finale; they canceled their engagement amicably in May 2017.
He said he had an unexpected reaction when listening to one of Lane & # 39; s songs called Big, Big, Plans, which is about Lane & # 39; s romance with Bushnell.
& # 39; I was like: & # 39; You know what? I don't hate this song! & # 39 ;, he said. & # 39; It's a great song, but I don't want to listen to it. & # 39;
Team spirit: the resident of Warsaw, Indiana, went to Instagram on Monday with a photo of Clarke and her parents celebrating their 30th anniversary
He said he had changed the station in vain because the song was playing on the other station.
& # 39; I could not escape it, & # 39; he said, & # 39; so I was just listening through it because I thought I had to do that at the time.
& # 39; I can listen to songs about what they do. I'm just happy for them, & he said.
The resident of Warsaw, Indiana, went to Instagram on Monday with a message about his trip to the Indianapolis Colts home game against the Denver Broncos on Sunday with Clarke and her parents celebrating their 30th anniversary.
& # 39; This gives me all kinds of joy, & # 39; he wrote. & # 39; Days like yesterday are special to me. Family, friends and loved ones all in one place. & # 39;
In love: Higgins and Clarke date since February
