July 2, 2009— -- "The Bachelor" star Jason Mesnick and his girlfriend Molly Malaney are still together, nearly five months after Mesnick reunited with Malaney, the woman who was initially his second choice.

Mesnick and Malaney stopped by "Good Morning Amerca" for their first joint interview since "The Bachelor: After the Final Rose" and said they plan to spend the rest of their lives together.

Mesnick said "things are going great" and they will "absolutely someday" get married.

Mesnick and Malaney, a department store buyer from Milwaukee, were recently spotted on vacation together in the Turks and Caicos islands with Mesnick's son, and while they aren't currently living together, she plans to move to his hometown of Seattle.

"We're very happy," Malaney said. "We're doing the distance thing right now."

She also said "it's been great," getting to know Mesnick's son Ty. "We talk on the phone, we play together when I'm in town."

Mesnick's new project was inspired by his son, who he said is "way cooler than I am." His Web site Jason's Place, is an online community for single parents.

Melissa Rycroft, whom Mesnick proposed to on "The Bachelor," but called it off on the "After the Final Rose" special, announced this week that she is engaged to boyfriend Ty Strickland.

Mesnick said he hadn't had much contact with Rycroft since the show ended.
