Matt James and Rachael Kirkconnell are back together and are reportedly dating after they broke up on the After The Final Rose of The Bachelor season 25.
After not even being able to give Rachael Kirkconnell a final hug goodbye at the finale, Matt was spotted with his winner in New York on April 6th.
“Rachael is in New York City with Matt right now, they’re working on their relationship and seeing if it’s salvageable. a source revealed to The Sun.
“They still have a lot of work to do, but they are figuring out things together instead of apart over text,” the insider said.
The Bachelor talked about Rachael’s past racist actions on The Bachelor finale.
“As Rachael acknowledged in her apology, there’s a lot of work that needs to be done. I have to take a step back and allow her to put in that work,” he told host Emmanuel.
“And I’m looking forward to seeing her put in that work… And so when I questioned our relationship, it was on the context of you not fully understanding my Blackness and what it means to be a Black man in America. And what it would mean for our kids when I saw those things that were floating around the internet.”
Rachael has been seen making an effort and put in the work on Instagram since the Bachelor stopped airing.
Reality Steve took to Twitter to confirm that the couple were far from over.
Here’s what he wrote:
It’s been a while but here’s some news: Matt and Rachael? Yeah, they’re not over. They’re currently in New York together. FYI,” Steve tweeted.
We wish them nothing but the best!
