After months of rumors, Blake Horstmann of Bachelor Nation and Giannina Gibelli of Love Is Blind have now officially announced their relationship. On June 29, Blake posted a series of affectionate pictures with Giannina along with the word “happy.” Just incredibly joyful. Giannina responded by saying, “We have a LOT of skill with secrecy. My love, I’m overjoyed.”
Even more adorable photos were posted by Giannina on her own Instagram, where she referred to her relationship as “my worst kept secret.” Both messages from the reality stars urged followers to watch their new Paramount+ series All Star Shore to learn more about how they met.
Giannina, 29, recalls meeting Blake, 33, for the first time while working on the real party competition series before going IG official. She told E! News on June 4 at iHeartRadio’s KIISFM Wango Tango event in Carson, California, “I haven’t followed the Bachelor series or anything like that, so I didn’t know who he was. I first encountered him on the beach when he gave me his wide, toothy smile and appeared to know me.
They haven’t, however, officially acknowledged their relationship until recently. Giannini thinks Blake is the “sweetest” person, despite the fact that some viewers may have judged him based on his time in Bachelor Nation. Giannina Gibelli and Blake Horstmann
He is really courteous, but I don’t believe they are aware of how witty, impulsive, and dedicated he is, she told E News. He’s currently working as a DJ, and as I watched him achieve all these new milestones and objectives, I thought, “I don’t think many people know that he has it in him, but he surely has.”
Fans may recall that Blake participated in Becca Kufrin’s season of The Bachelorette in 2018 and reached the final two. He continued to appear on Bachelor in Paradise season six in 2019 but ultimately left the show solo.
Giannina gets engaged to Damian Powers in the 2020 television series Love Is Blind. He did not, however, say “I do” on the wedding day. Fans followed Damian and Giannina’s journey on the 2021 reunion of Love Is Blind: Still, they fought to make their love work. Giannina declared herself “officially single” by August 2021, but after the Alter.
When New Year’s Eve rolled around in January 2022, she and Blake posted to their social media accounts from what appeared to be the same location on many occasions. Then, a source verified to E! News that they were in a relationship.
