Third time’s a charm, baby!
ICYMI, Peter Weber is officially off the market and “fully dating” his former Bachelor contestant Kelley Flanagan after weeks of teasing their relationship on social media. While the pilot’s whirlwind of a season and controversial post-show decisions might have left some fans bitter, the new couple’s friends and loved ones truly couldn’t be happier for them right now!
A source close to the situation told Us Weekly about how the pair’s inner circle has given them the thumbs-up:
“All of their friends and family are so happy for them.”
Late last month, before Peter and Kelley were comfortable with becoming Instagram and TikTok official, a different insider told the outlet they were still hesitant about their romance and struggled with “admitting it to people.” But they’ve since thrown caution to the wind and are fully leaning into this thing! We mean, just look at this adorable shot Weber posted (below) of himself and Flanagan. The “you caught me” really says it all!
This was a much sweeter approach to the news than the snarky video they made singing Akon‘s Don’t Matter, but either way, the message is clear! As the confidant explained to Us:
“This was just their way of announcing they’re a couple to the world.”
Nice! But just for good measure, Pete’s mom Barbara also went ahead and posted her own tribute to the happy couple, too! The Weber matriarch has been a vocal fan of the Chicago-based attorney for a little while now and lovingly referred to her son’s relationship as “serendipity” in a new post, seen here:
Contrary to the other Bachelor quarantine romances happening out there, these two seem like they’re serious about going the distance! It looks like Peter and Kelley are going to continue sheltering-in-place together in Chicago for the foreseeable future and according to what Bachelorette alum Dustin Kendrick dished to Us Weekly recently, they’ve got a great dynamic going for them right now:
“I think it’s fair for them to come out and say what they want to say, but the only thing I can say is that they look really cute together and their interactions are really cute as well. I’m sure you’ll be possibly hearing stuff in the future from them, but I’ll let them say that.”
Cheers to the happy couple!
