"Bachelor in Paradise" stars Amanda Stanton and Josh Murray are planning their wedding, something that may come as a bit of a surprise to fans since blogger Reality Steve announced that the couple broke up earlier this week. Although the couple admits to having "been through a lot" since they got engaged during the filming of the season finale of "Bachelor in Paradise" last summer, Amanda tells "Entertainment Tonight" that they have gotten stronger through all of the changes and are "really happy."

When are Amanda and Josh getting married?

During an appearance at the KIIS-FM Jingle Ball last week, Amanda and Josh said that they've spent the last six months getting settled into their new life.

Amanda has two daughters, Charlie and Kinsley, from a previous marriage, and Josh moved from Georgia to California to live with them, so there's no doubt that they all had to make an adjustment. Murray tells ET that the long-distance move was a "great decision" and he loves Amanda's daughters "more than anything."

And anyone who follows the couple on social media can see that Josh really is crazy about Charlie and Kinsley, but what about Amanda? Are they really going to make it down the aisle? Amanda and Josh have only been engaged six months, so it's smart not to rush right into a wedding, especially because their initial romance took place over the course of only 18 days while filming "Bachelor in Paradise." However, the couple said that fans should be concerned that they haven't picked a date yet, but they have "talked about it" and "absolutely" intend to pick a date soon.

Amanda and Josh are excited for Christmas

But before they make wedding plans, Amanda and Josh are preparing for their first Christmas as a newly engaged couple. Both Josh and Amanda's families are flying out to Orange County where the couple lives, and they plan to have a big family holiday. At the top of their Christmas list (in addition to buying toys for the girls) is a real Christmas tree.

Amanda says that she's never purchased a real one, and buying one with Josh tops her holiday to-do list.
