‘The Bachelor’: Peter Weber and Kelley Flanagan Respond to Engagement Rumors
After his season of The Bachelor ended, Peter Weber began dating Kelley Flanagan, a contestant he eliminated just before hometowns. And they’ve been together ever since. Fans have watched on social media as the couple has gone on adventure after adventure. After a particularly beautiful outing, some fans were wondering if Weber and Flanagan got engaged. Here’s what they have to say about that.
How Peter Weber and Kelley Flanagan got together after ‘The Bachelor’
Weber might have gotten engaged to Hannah Ann Sluss during his season of The Bachelor and ended the engagement because of his feelings for Madison Prewett, but Flanagan, he says, is the only woman for him.
When Weber went on former bachelor Nick Viall’s podcast, The Viall Files back in April, he said, after the season wrapped, he and Flanagan just kept running into each other.
“After the show, this was over the Super Bowl, I was in Miami, I had the opportunity to go to the Super Bowl there with my brother and I ran into her on Saturday night before the Super Bowl,” said Weber, adding that this was right after he’d broken up with Sluss.
The pilot says he didn’t get Flanagan’s number after the Super Bowl run-in. But then he saw her again when he was out with friends. He says he texted Kristian Haggert (Demi Burnett’s ex) to meet him out. When she showed up, Flanagan was with her.
“So they show up at this place that we’re at. I see Kelley again, jaw drops. This is insane. What are the odds of this? So we obviously chat, see some other people, go out, have a fun time just hanging out. That’s when I got her number and we started to communicate and just stay in touch,” he said.
After they’d been talking for a bit, Weber says he flew out to Chicago to help Flanagan “take her mind off” some “family” stuff she had going on. Shortly after, “everything started to hit with the quarantine stuff.” So they decided to quarantine together. And they fell in love.
Peter Weber and Kelley Flanagan say they are not engaged
A rumor that Weber and Flanagan got engaged has been going around. Though the Bachelor couple has been visiting plenty of picturesque, engagement-worthy locations, they say the pilot has yet to pop the question.
“We are loving continuing to get to know each other, having lots of great adventures and growing together,” Flanagan told Entertainment Tonight in response to the rumor. “We are very happy!”
Though Flanagan and Weber aren’t engaged, they’re taking another big step together in the near future. They plan to move in together in New York City next year.
“I’m super excited to take this next step with Kell and move to New York and to see what adventures await,” Weber told ET in July.
“We’re not on a reality show anymore, we can take our time,” Flanagan added at the time. “We don’t need to rush anything. We want to make sure each other is in the right headspace, and there’s nothing wrong with that. We’re happy and we’re living life.”
