Are Becca Kufrin and Garrett Yrigoyen Still Together? The Former Bachelorette Updates Fans on Her Relationship Status

Garrett Yrigoyen may have won over Becca Kufrin’s heart on The Bachelorette Season 14, but recent events have fans wondering whether the couple is still together

In June 2020, Yrigoyen chose to support police officers amid the Black Lives Matter protests following George Floyd’s death. Then during the Bachelor Happy Hour podcast with Rachel Lindsay, Kufrin addressed the statement and claimed her fiancé’s views did not match her own. She also noted more conversations about white privilege and racism were going to take place. Now, Kufrin has shared an update on her relationship with Yrigoyen. 

What did Becca Kufrin’s ‘Bachelorette’ pick, Garrett Yrigoyen, say?

I’ve been pretty tore up the past week about everything going on. I’ve listened, learned, helped, supported, and grown. With so many friends and family in law enforcement I couldn’t sit back and not support them and the hundreds of thousands of men and women of all races that represent this Thin Blue Line as well. It’s important for me to recognize the ones who stand in the gap and put their lives on the line each and every single day for humans of different race and ethnicity, including those who hate them. The Thin Blue Line represents each officer protecting protestors, properties, and businesses while being threatened, attacked, shot, shot at, hit with vehicles, and other forms of brutality. There have been over 300 injured, shot, or killed in just one week. They are suffering the consequences over an act they didn’t commit. They continue to put in overtime away from their families, stay silent while being threatened, hated, and assaulted. We can’t judge an entire group of people by the actions of a few. We can’t judge the peaceful protesters by the actions of the few violent protesters, and we sure can’t judge all cops by the actions of a few bad ones. Remember when they put on the badge they’re still humans, with raw emotion, the more brutality they face the more on edge they become, they make mistakes, they have compassion, and no matter how terrible they are treated or whatever negative is said to them, they still show up for us when we need them! Remember these men and women who hold this Thin Blue Line; strangers, friends, family, neighbors, or your enemies. They will always be out there protecting us, no matter what! #thinblueline #antiracism #antibrutality

On June 2, Yrigoyen posted a black square on Instagram, captioning the post with a simple string of emojis to represent the Black Lives Matter movement. Then two days later, The Bachelorette alum posted a photo with a thin blue line to support law enforcement. He also wrote a lengthy caption to explain himself.

“I’ve been pretty tore up the past week about everything going on. I’ve listened, learned, helped, supported, and grown,” Yrigoyen wrote. “With so many friends and family in law enforcement I couldn’t sit back and not support them and the hundreds of thousands of men and women of all races that represent this Thin Blue Line as well.”

He added: “It’s important for me to recognize the ones who stand in the gap and put their lives on the line each and every single day for humans of different race and ethnicity, including those who hate them.

Becca Kufrin promises to take action after her conversation with Rachel Lindsay

This entire week has been the most difficult, & quite frankly I’m anxious for the assortment of responses that will be sent about today’s BHH podcast. Ultimately I have to look beyond myself & my feelings because what we cover in it is so much bigger & important than me. So with that preface, I’m going to take a moment to give some thoughts (unfortunately I can’t say them all in 1 post, but I hope my future actions speak louder than any words I can say). Throughout the episode, Rachel & I talk about what has been taking place across our country, the Black Lives Matter Movement, underlying issues of white privilege, diversity & changes that can take place within systems like the Bachelor Franchise. This conversation was the hardest, most uncomfortable, but important ones that we’ve had. I value my friendship with Rachel. I also value my partnership with Garrett. So this is really effing hard. As it should be. I will be the first to admit that listening to this back, I came up short. Very short. I listen to this & wish I had said more, wish I could have expressed myself better, wish I could have given so much more than I did. I think to myself “I didn’t ask the right questions,” “I threw out the incorrect phrases,” “I didn’t defend my fiancé,” “why couldn’t I back up my thought process better?” The list goes on & on. So where do I go from here? I can’t re-record this episode. I can’t go back & change my words (or lack there of). I can only try to move forward with what I believe is right, how to accept, be patient, & show care to others – especially for those who are hurting most right now. It that starts with a heart change (as Rachel so eloquently put it at the end – so I hope you’ve all listened through.) As an individual, I have the ability to use my voice, to use my platform, to have uncomfortable conversations during time-changing moments like this because it matters. It’s important. Each day brings on a brand new challenge, conversation, & new lesson. I welcome them & I hope you do too. If I’ve learned anything throughout these past 2 years, it’s that we have the beautiful capability to be better than the day before, so that’s what I’m trying my damndest at

After Yrigoyen’s Instagram post, Kufrin opened up about her final rose pick in the June 9th episode of Bachelor Happy Hour. She said she stilled loved Yrigoyen and continuously claimed the post wasn’t done in a “malicious way.” 

“I do think it was tone-deaf and it was the wrong time and message and sentiment,” Kufrin said at the time. 

Meanwhile, Lindsay explained the intent wasn’t necessarily the problem. Rather, it was about choosing to remain ignorant about the underlying issue.

“I don’t think Garrett is malicious, but Garrett is what the problem is,” Lindsay said. She later added, “I don’t understand why you say ‘It wasn’t malicious’ or ‘I’m just now understanding things.’ You have to admit that you made a choice to not see it.”

Then in the Bachelor Happy Hour episode published on June 16, Kufrin reflected upon her statements in the previous broadcast. She apologized to Lindsay and pointed our her co-host helped her realized she needs to further educate herself on her privilege and take impactful action. Kufrin also shared she would only be speaking for herself from now on.

“I can’t speak for Garrett, I can’t speak for the white community as a whole,” Kufrin said. “I can only speak for myself because if I don’t do that, it’s not genuine. Moving forward, I’m only going to speak for myself from here on out.”

In the same Bachelor Happy Hour episode, Kufrin briefly shared the status of her relationship with Yrigoyen. She explained there’s uncertainty. But ultimately, it seems Kufrin is working together with Yrigoyen in private.

“For those who are curious about my relationship with Garrett at this point, all I can say right now is that I don’t know,” Kufrin said. “I can’t give anything more than that.”

She continued, “It’s something that we are trying to work through and discuss and do work on at home at this time. That’s where the work will remain and that’s really the best I can give you at this point.”

Then Lindsay acknowledged Kufrin’s effort and willingness to change. However, the same can’t be said for Yrigoyen at this time. 

“As a friend that’s willing to learn, how — as a friend — can I not be willing to help out and be there for you?” Lindsay said. “Now, Garrett — that’s a different situation. I don’t f*ck with Garret and I don’t need to. But you and I have a different relationship.’

Lindsay added, “I appreciate everything you just said. I feel like it’s my duty as a friend to be there for you. Because you’re admitting you’re wrong and saying you want to be better and do better. How, as a friend, can I not accept that and help you through that? You don’t neglect somebody when something bad happens. It’s different if you’re ignorant and want to stay in that place. That is not what you’re bringing to the table.”
