"Part of it in the beginning was the distance, and the other part was added pressures like dating in the 'real world,'" the source added of the couple who recently moved in together. Murray, 32, relocated from Atlanta, Georgia, to Stanton's apartment in Irvine, California, earlier this summer.

Of course, their relationship wasn't exactly easy on Bachelor in Paradise. Murray's intentions were continuously questioned by his castmates, who often brought up passages from his ex Andi Dorfman's tell-all, which painted Murray in a not-so-flattering light. Murray, for his part, has dismissed the memoir as "fictional" and "ludicrous."

"Amanda has two little girls and of course that is going to add a different kind of pressure to a new relationship," the source said of the pair.

The couple may be feeling the pressure now, but just before the show's finale, it was a different story.

"I'm so in love right now," Murray gushed to ET earlier this summer, adding that he "cannot wait" to meet her daughters, Kinsey, 4, and Charlie, 2, and have a few of his own with the 26-year-old esthetician.
