‘The Bachelor’: Peter Weber Confirms His Relationship With Kelley Flanagan in an Instagram Post
After weeks of speculation, Peter Weber finally confirmed his relationship with Kelley Flanagan. While the two originally denied being in a relationship after the most recent season of The Bachelor ended, Weber posted a photo on Instagram confirming he is with Flanagan.
Fans speculated Peter Weber and Kelley Flanagan were dating after ‘The Bachelor’
Dating rumors about Weber and Flanagan surfaced in April 2020 when the two were spotted together in Chicago. It was revealed they were quarantining together along with Dustin Kendrick during the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak.
Kendrick told Us Weekly, “It’s just the three of us staying at Kelley’s apartment. We’ve just been chilling, making TikTok videos, trying to stay out of trouble with people.”
He also said that Weber and Flanagan were cute together, but he did not confirm if they were dating.
“I think it’s fair for them to come out and say what they want to say, but the only thing I can say is that they look really cute together and their interactions are really cute as well. That’s all I can say on that and I’m sure you’ll be possibly hearing stuff in the future from them, but I’ll let them say that,” Kendrick said. “It’s just good to see him happy and just living his truth and being happy with someone. After this is all over with, Peter and Kelley could be a ‘thing.’ I’m not opposed to it. From what I’ve been seeing, they’re very cute together. So, I hope so.”
The two originally denied being a couple
While it was confirmed Weber and Flanagan were quarantining together, the two denied they were dating. However, fans of The Bachelor continued to speculate due to the fact Weber and Flanagan never denied they were more than friends.
On Nick Viall’s podcast The Viall Files, Weber hinted that he could see himself dating Flanagan down the line.
“Are we dating? No. Do I love spending time with her? Absolutely. We’re not dating. Could I see that in the future? Yeah, of course,” he said.
Peter Weber confirmed he is dating Kelley Flanagan
On May 2, Weber posted a photo on Instagram confirming he is in a relationship with Flanagan. The former Bachelor posted a photo of the two kissing in an airplane, alluding to the fact Weber has found his co-pilot.
“You caught me. Let the adventure begin,” Weber captioned the photo.
This post should not come as a shock to fans, as the two seemingly acknowledged they were in a relationship in a TikTok video where they lip synced to Akon’s “Nobody Wanna See Us Together.”
In April 2020, Chris Harrison admitted that dating in the real world could be easier for Weber and Flanagan than dating on The Bachelor.
“I’ll take a little blame for this — the show wasn’t perfect for that relationship. I don’t think Kelley was right for the show,” Harrison said in an interview with Entertainment Tonight. “She fought the concept. It was tough for her to not be in her own head, not to try and look into the production. It just didn’t work for her, and that hurt their chemistry, that’s why he let her go. I think them living in the real world and just dating is a better environment and a better situation.”
