'Bachelorette' Jillian Harris and Ed Swiderski Share Wedding Plans

?Bachelorette? Jillian Harris and Ed Swiderski on GMA

In their first live joint interview, "Bachelorette" Jillian Harris and her fiance, Ed Swiderski, told "Good Morning America" that they're excited to go public with their relationship and that they plan to get married in Canada in the next year and a half.

The happy couple answered questions from viewers and "GMA" staffers about the show and their relationship.

One viewer asked when Harris knew that Swiderski was "the one." She said, "I do remember when it was down to final three … as soon as I looked at him, I knew I could never let this guy go."

Another asked about whether the couple would move in together.

"She's going to come to Chicago," Swiderski, 29, said. "We are probably going to get hitched in the next 12 to 18 months."

"This has all been very natural for both of us," Harris, 30, added. "We'll probably get married up in Canada."

"GMA's" Emily O'Donnell asked whether Harris was surprised when third-place contestant Reid Rosenthal returned in the finale.

Harris said she knew she wanted to be with Swiderski. "[Reid] is a wonderful guy, and I definitely didn't expect it."

Ed also said he didn't know that Reid would be returning.

And what about all that cuddling and kissing in front of the cameras, "GMA's" Ronna Waldman asked.

"I wasn't nervous," Swiderski said jokingly, referring to the fact that the spark didn't quite fly on the couple's first night alone together. "It was strange. You've got a whole crew always around you."

On the "After the Final Rose" special, which aired last night, Harris said that after sending second-place finisher Kiptyn Locke home and rejecting Reid's proposal, she was nervous that Swiderski wouldn't ask her to marry him. But he said he knew earlier in the season during their trip to Spain that he would propose if he made it to the final rose ceremony.

"[My ending] was very, very happy," Harris said. "I thought I was going to pass out" when he proposed.

Locke said, "I don't have any hard feelings" but asked if there was anything he could have done differently that might have changed the outcome.

"You never did anything wrong," Jillian said, surprised by how emotional she was seeing him for the first time since the show wrapped up taping.

Rosenthal, who Jillian sent home because he didn't express his feelings for her, also appeared on "After the Final Rose" and discussed his surprise return and proposal in the finale.

"I thought she was going to say yes," he said, adding that "of course" he still loves her. "I'm still upset."

"Was there a part of you that wanted to say yes?" Reid asked Jillian. "If I told you how I felt earlier would it change anything?"

Jillian said she was confident she made the right decision, but acknowledged it was difficult to face Reid.

Rosenthal accepted her decision and said "you seem happy." When asked if he had any other questions to ask, he joked that he had a few that weren't appropriate to bring up on television.

"One of them was about the fantasy suite," he joked, referring Jillian and Ed's first night together.

"There are definitely no bedroom problems," Jillian said later in the special. "We can't get enough in the bedroom!"

She also said that she was "a big fan" of Swiderski's tiny green swim trunks that generated much discussion among "Bachelorette" fans.
