What’s the status? Bachelor Nation stars Ashley Iaconetti and Jared Haibon exclusively dished to Life & Style that the rumored romance between former Bachelorette contestant Tyler Cameron and Gigi Hadid is hot and heavy.
“They’re a serious couple,” the 31-year-old brunette beauty divulged with Jared, 30, while hosting an intimate evening with dating app Plenty of Fish to celebrate the premiere of their new video, Dine & Dish. Her hubby cheekily added, “I mean, they’re practically married at this point!”
The biggest indicator for Ashley was that Tyler, 26, attended the funeral of the 24-year-old’s grandmother, Ans van den Herik, who died at 78 years old on August 30 after battling cancer. “That’s a pretty big deal,” the former Bachelor in Paradise contestant noted.
While flying to the Netherlands for such an intimate family event does seem like major boyfriend territory, a source admitted exclusively to Life & Style that it totally fits the Florida native’s personality. “Tyler is a supportive guy. He is there for the people he cares about and will do whatever he can for them,” the source gushed about the reality star. “Tyler’s the type of guy who will try his best to make someone smile during a tough time. Things seem to be going well, they are definitely enjoying their time together.”
Although Tyler and Gigi have been spotted all over the place together, the stud is still playing coy about their relationship. “We’re just friends,” he told Entertainment Tonight in an interview published on September 24 about the supermodel. “I mean … that’s just where we’re at. Our relationship doesn’t need to be public. She’s good people, she’s an amazing person and we’re just keeping it friendly.”
How could someone not be head-over-heels for the catwalk queen? The aspiring male model noted that they’re just taking it one day at a time. “I’m at the point where I don’t really want to talk about my relationships. I’ve dated publicly, so … I’m trying to date privately and I’m not in love with anybody right now … I’m in love with myself,” the former love interest of Hannah Brown confessed after being asked if he was bitten by the love bug. But, he was sure to reiterate, “She’s an amazing person. We have a great time together.”
We’ll keep our eyes on these two!
