Brayden Bowers hard launches relationship with Christina Mandrell
He’s in love. Brayden Bowers did not find love on The Bachelorette or on Bachelor in Paradise. However, he did find love on his own, kind of. She’s still a part of Bachelor Nation and they are absolutely adorable together.
Brayden went to Instagram to share the exciting news. He shared an Instagram story saying he was keeping a big secret. The next slide showed him at the airport saying he was on his way to see Christina. He also reshared a photo of the announcement on the BIP finale.
When the show wrapped up airing, Brayden also posted a video on Instagram that showed their time together. It seems they have been together for a while and have already had numerous adventures together. He’s even already met and spent time with her daughter.
In his video post, he said,
I finally took Wells’ advice and found myself a ‘southern belle’.
All jokes aside she has been the biggest blessing in my life. She has been there for me through very tough times already and has showed me so much grace through it all. She has become my confidant, my accountability partner, and my favorite person. I’m so grateful that I no longer have to be hush-hush about our relationship. I can finally shout it from the tops of the mountains. Love you babe thank you being in my life 😘❤️
He didn’t feel he did well with dating multiple people
Back in October, Brayden Bowers said he didn’t feel like he did well dating multiple people. So, Bachelor in Paradise was hard on him. He did have a connection with Kat Izzo but that didn’t work out. In fact, Kat ended up engaged to John Henry in the end.
He also had a thing with Becca Serrano and many thought he was dating Rachel Recchia post-show. However, neither of those relationships worked out either and it seems it was a good thing.
Brayden said he’s so happy it hurts.
Congrats to Brayden and Christina!
