Back on? Bachelorette star Hannah Brown and Tyler Cameron are just friends amid dating rumors but are “taking it slow,” a source tells Life & Style exclusively. The pair’s relationship is going “day by day, and [they] won’t let anyone’s thoughts about them pressure them to move fast.”

The exes have “genuine feelings” for each other and are a “great match,” dishes the insider. Hannah, 25, and Tyler, 27, split during the finale of season 15 when the leading lady got engaged to Jed Wyatt. She and the musician ended their romance less than a month later, but there was still a spark left with Tyler. “Their feelings for each other have always remained strong,“ adds the insider.

The Alabama native and Tyler reconnected after the tragic death of his mom, Andrea, from a brain aneurysm earlier this month. “Hannah’s been nothing but supportive to Tyler since his mom passed and wanted to be there for him,” explains the insider. 

The reality duo always knew they would remain in each other’s lives, and the former beauty queen has offered “overwhelming” support to her ex during this difficult time. “Since letting him go on The Bachelorette, [Hannah] has definitely been able to do a lot of thinking, and she eventually realized she wanted him to be part of her life, even if it was just as a friend,” divulges the source. 

After heading to Jupiter for Andrea’s funeral, Hannah was spotted visiting his hometown again on March 14 when the Bachelor Nation stud picked her up from the airport. “Right now, they’ve been spending a lot of time with Tyler’s family and close friends in Florida,” says the insider. “Hannah wants to get more alone time with him, so [she] doesn’t have immediate plans to return home.” Tyler included the Dancing With the Stars champ as part of his “quarantine crew” while sharing videos on TikTok. It doesn’t seem like they care who knows about their budding friendship. “They wouldn’t be hanging out in public if they wanted to keep it a secret,” notes the source.

No matter where their relationship goes, “Hannah is very happy with Tyler,” gushes the source. “You can tell she’s in a better mood and just lights up when she’s with him.” It looks like she fits in perfectly with his hometown pals, and there’s no denying they have a lot in common. “They both are family-oriented, love adventure and the outdoors, love to workout and are both very social,” says the insider. 

Time will tell!
