It's official: Chris Soules is the new 'Bachelor'!

While we reported the exciting news yesterday, the official announcement was made on 'Good Morning America' this morning (Aug. 27), and the Iowa farming hunk was there to dish on the good news.

Presenting the hosts with roses, Soules opened up about his reaction when he found out he was going to be the next Bachelor.

"I mean, I was humbled, flattered, grateful," he revealed. "I mean, coming from a small town, I never really expected to have this opportunity on either show, let alone be the lead on 'The Bachelor.' It's been awesome."

"I was able to tell my parents and my family, and they are extremely excited for me," he added. "It's been awesome. Everyone's been really supportive."

"I believe in the process," he continued. "I believe in what I went through on the previous show, that's why I'm doing it."

And as for bringing what he learned on 'The Bachelorette' to his season of 'The Bachelor'?

"My focus is going to be to make the girls on the show as comfortable as possible," he revealed. "… I'm going to do my best. I think I'm going to do well. I'm looking forward to it."

And so are we!
