Now, Weber and Flanagan recently had their “Hometown Date” with her family. Flanagan’s mother called Weber “a good ol’ Joe,” among other things.

How did Peter Weber end up with Kelley Flanagan after ‘The Bachelor?’

Photos surfaced of Weber and Flanagan together in Chicago on March 25, 2020. However, the pair initially denied claims that they were dating. It only took a few weeks for Weber to fall for his bachelor contestant outside of the show, while quarantined together due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. Only two weeks later, he admitted he had feelings for his fifth choice.

“Yes, I’m definitely crushing on her for sure,” Weber said on The Ben and Ashley I Almost Famous Podcast on April 7, 2020.

“You caught me,” Weber wrote in the caption. “Let the adventure begin.”

Weber finally met Flanagan’s family on July 9, 2020, for dinner and golf at Medinah Country Club in Illinois. The attorney is from Chicago, Illinois, and was very excited for her family to meet her boyfriend. She shared a family photo with Weber, her parents, and three of her brothers.

“The hometown that should’ve been,” Weber wrote on Flanagan’s post.

The Bachelor contestant asked her mother what she thought of Weber while the men played a round of golf at the country club.

“He’s a gentleman,” Flanagan’s mother said Flanagan’s Instagram story. “He’s very polite. [Weber]’s very accommodating, he’s very genuine. He’s very sweet, and he was raised the right way. I think my Kel-Belle — which is my daughter — really really likes him. She’s nicer herself when she’s around him, so it does rub off. I think he’s just a good ol’ Joe.”

It sounds like her mother is smitten on the pilot.

Fans can’t get enough of ‘The Bachelor’ hometown visit

“Imagine how amazing the season would have been if he just picked you from the beginning,” one fan wrote in the caption. “Y’all are so perfect together.”

Other fans agreed, including Weber’s mom, Barbara.

“Can’t wait to meet your beautiful family,” Barbara wrote to Flanagan.

Flanagan’s sister responded to Barbara.

“Barb, we are totally going to be besties,” Pamela Flanagan responded to Weber’s mom’s comment.

Pamela wasn’t able to attend the dinner at the country club because she lives in Denver, Colorado. Kelley Flanagan has five siblings, but only her three brothers attended the “hometown date.”

Flanagan’s mother made up for the missing children with her rave review of the pilot.
