Bachelor Nation’s Danielle Maltby and Michael Allio’s love story began on the beach during Bachelor in Paradise season 8 and the couple quickly won over the hearts of fans. The pair had been missing from each other’s social media posts in the summer of 2023, sparking concern that they split.
Did Danielle Maltby and Michael Allio Break Up?
Eagle-eyed fans questioned if Danielle and Michael were still together after they hadn’t posted with or about each other on social media since June 2023.
Online followers have shared their concerns in the comment sections of Danielle and Michael’s Instagram posts.
“Please tell me y’all didn’t break up,” one person commented on Danielle’s July 22 Instagram photo, while a second fan wrote, “Where’s your great lady? Haven’t seen You both together? Everything ok?” under Michael’s post three days later.
Danielle’s last post that included Michael was on June 18 for Father’s Day.
“Happy Father’s Day to this freaking studley man- good grief. You literally do it all and don’t get or take enough credit for the incredibly witty, cute, yellow loving, smart, silly, crafty, un-marcusy human you are shaping. Every kid deserves a dad like you @michael_alliol4 Love you big time,” she captioned the post alongside precious photos of Michael and his son, James.
The speculation continued in September when Danielle deleted all of their photos together on social media.
“I guess I’ll just come out with it. We’re not together anymore,” he admitted. “It’s not what we planned. We both threw a lot into this relationship and it’s really awful when it doesn’t work out.”
Are Danielle Maltby and Michael Allio Still Together?
Michael is the only person to address the breakup as of publication, while Danielle seemingly has her hands full after recently being diagnosed as anemic while in the process of freezing her eggs.
“My iron reserves were next to nothing and with heavy periods I came close to needing a blood transfusion,” she wrote in a lengthy caption on June 26, before confirming she and Michael were still together. “First infusion down! Really excited to see how I’ll start feeling. Michael may have a whole new girlfriend who isn’t a tired space cadet all the time. In all seriousness anemia is no joke and I just want to encourage y’all to take care of yourselves. Make the doctors appointment, get the labs done, do your chest/ breast and testes checks. Preventative care is way less expensive than critical or emergent care if you let things go too far.”
Before their breakup news was confirmed, Michael addressed the split speculation while appearing on the August 3 episode of the “She’s All Bach” podcast. “I’ll say this. Being in a public relationship, it isn’t fun,” he said at the time. “Danielle and I, like, both agree that the only people that should be in our relationship are us two. So we think just the healthiest way to have a relationship is to keep it private.”
He concluded the topic by noting that they “both love each other, like, very much.”
When Did Danielle Maltby and Michael Allio Start Dating?
Danielle and Michael started dating during season 8 of Bachelor in Paradise, which began filming in June 2022.
Though they did not leave the beach with an engagement ring, the pair continued their relationship when the cameras stopped filming and have since traveled the nation together.
