Peter Weber may be one of the more notorious former Bachelor stars, having been in multiple relationships with his contestants after the show ended. Many fans thought he would end up with Hannah Brown or Hannah Ann Sluss or Madison Prewett, but the one that’s stuck?
They’ve made their relationship Instagram official, and now they’re ready to confirm their commitment to one another.
It can’t be easy dating someone whose dating history is documented on television, and it is probably even harder to date someone who rejected you on television as well! Fortunately for Kelley Flanagan, Peter Weber knows how hard it has been.
“Everything I put Kelley through… I’m still working to make it up to her for not picking her,” The Bachelor told ET. “And I’m never going to stop.”
After Peter split with Madison Prewett, he reconnected with Kelley. He said he wasn’t in the right mind when he met her, and she admitted that dating on reality TV just isn’t really her thing. Apparently, the only thing they needed to make the relationship work was some good old-fashioned privacy.
Kelley admitted that she didn’t want to see Peter after he initially reached out, but reconnected after seeing each other at a West Hollywood bar. “I was like, ‘You know what? I gotta stop caring about that so much,'” Kelley told ET. “’Yes, please come out … come see me.'”
Since they reunited during a global pandemic, Peter and his friend Dustin Kendrick quarantined at Kelley’s house, which is where their romance began to flourish. They addressed their past issues head-on without fear of outside opinion.
“Trust is a huge thing, but if you just hear each other out, it’s a lot easier,” Kelley said. “We’ve sat down and talked everything through, and it makes a lot more sense if you’re on our end than the public’s.”
“With Kelley, it literally sounds so cliché — I can just be myself. She truly gets me,” Peter told the outlet. “She’s my biggest fan and she supports me and she’s always there for me. I know I have my partner in crime forever.”
The couple has moved quickly, and Peter decided to splurge for a ring!
“Wanna know how I told her I loved her for the first time?” he said. “Neil Lane wasn’t there — I know — but I got her this little gumball machine ring. We were having a pool day, and I [sat her on the couch]… I told her I wanted her to remember this day from this gumball machine ring is the day that I told you that I loved you.”
“Isn’t he sweet?” Kelley replied. “How can you not love him?”
And now, he’s going to meet the parents!
