Back in the dating game! Bachelor in Paradise star Jordan Kimball revealed his new girlfriend on November 28. The blonde beauty — whom the male model has yet to identify — is his first public relationship since splitting with his ex-fiancée, Jenna Cooper, last year.
“I’m thankful for you,” the 27-year-old captioned a series of photos cuddled up with the mystery woman, whom he purposefully didn’t tag. Fans were teased at first glance because they looked like engagement pictures — she was even wearing a white dress — but the cute snapshots were simply to announce their relationship.
“I can’t wait to celebrate us in Banff! Get ready to be snowed in babe! Cheers everybody, I’m extremely grateful to share my happiness with y’all!” Jordan concluded his sappy post.
Bachelor Nation rallied to support the reality stud and this new chapter in his life. “Cute! So happy for you!” Kristina Schulman commented. “Congrats man!!! Can’t wait to meet her!” Blake Horstmann added. Jason Tartick gushed, “This makes me very happy, congrats man!” His fellow Paradise costar Katie Morton wrote, “Happy for you!!”
Jordan got engaged to Jenna, 29, during the season 5 finale of Paradise in August 2018. They broke up shortly after when alleged text messages between the reality babe and her supposed boyfriend that said her relationship with Jordan was “all for her business” and they “aren’t together for real.”
Jenna claimed that the messages were fake and she would use “” to prove her innocence. However, it was too little too late. After the dust settled in November, she took to Instagram Live and opened up more about the events that happened.
“It’s really hard to prove something that didn’t happen,” she told her followers. “Maybe I’m not a perfect person. I have my issues. But, I am an extremely loyal person. If I didn’t want to be with someone, I would just break up with them. I wouldn’t cheat on them.”
Since the scandal, Jenna toldon May 29 that she’s writing a book about the experience. The starlet explained that she is “no longer under contract, and I am ready to share the details. I know America has heard some of the obnoxious lies about me from Bachelor Nation’s most thirsty contestants and gossip blogs. But now it’s my turn. I have gone to great lengths to prove that all of these accusations were false.” She continued, “I hope that it will inspire other women to stand up for themselves despite being victimized and bullied.”
Jordan seems to be over Jenna and their drama. “I’m not entertaining anything she says,” he confessed exclusively to Life & Style in May. “It’s almost been a year and she is still at it. What a nightmare. I never threw a stone at her but she uses terms such as ‘bullying.’”
We’re glad Jordan has found happiness!
