That being said, they’re not going to rush into anything.

“I mean, we’re still kind of waiting,” added Roper. “We haven’t even been married a year. But I think once I hit that mark, I’m really going to be like, ‘Okay, let’s do it!’ ”

Roper and Tolbert met while starring on BiP last year, got engaged on the season finale after just a few weeks together and got married on TV in January.

The two will also be starring on the upcoming season of Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars, set to premiere next month.

“We never got to do premarital counseling because everything moved so quick with us,” explained Tolbert of their decision to join the show. “So we viewed it as an opportunity to lay a good foundation.”

“I think people have this idea that you go on The Bachelor and you have this perfect relationship, but we’re normal, just like everyone else, and we have our issues,” added Roper. “All of our relationship has already been on television, so why can’t we be good role models by showing [the full picture]? Like hey, we do love each other and we do have issues and we’re here to work them out, just like everyone else.”

Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars season 6 premieres Oct. 7 at 9 p.m. ET on WE tv.
