Andi Dorfman, star of "The Bachelorette" season 10, made her first public appearance Tuesday with fiance Josh Murray, following his proposal on the show's finale.

"I definitely knew there was that chemistry and attraction with him," Dorfman, 27, told co-host Lara Spencer on ABC's "Good Morning America." "I'm definitely an overthinker, though, so it took me till the very end" to know for sure, Dorfman added. "But there was something special with him," she said.

Murray, 29, a former minor league baseball player who, like Dorfman, lives in Atlanta, told Spencer his first impressions of Dorfman had panned out. "They definitely did. I knew she was very intelligent but she is so funny, she's beautiful."

During Monday night's final rose ceremony, Murray proposed to Dorfman with a Neil Lane ring: an oval-cut diamond surrounded by 154 round-cut diamonds. The platinum band is also studded with diamonds. After Dorfman accepted, she gave Murray the final rose.

Dorfman, a lawyer, said she has given "a little" thought to the wedding. "I know we would like to do something in the spring. But I think for now, it's like, I finally got the engagement ring. I'm going to enjoy this for a while."

Fellow finalist Nick Viall, 33, a Chicago software salesman, did not take his rejection lightly, telling Dorfman on Monday's "After the Final Rose" special, "Knowing how in love with you I was, if you weren't in love with me I'm just not sure why, like, why you made love with me?"

"Well, first of all," Dorfman replied, "I think that's kind of below the belt. I think that's something that should be private and kept private." But she added, "The things I said to you, the things, you know, the way I kissed you, the way I looked at you -- those things were real. And, and your take on it might have been somewhat different than mine, but, but it was real for me."
