Former Bachelor Ben Higgins isn’t quite ready to let fans know everything about his new relationship.
The 29-year-old revealed last week that he’s dating someone new after his split from Lauren Bushnell back in 2017, but he’s not dropping names just yet!
However, he did share on his Almost Famous podcast that the girl he’s dating is not from Colton Underwood’s season of The Bachelor.
“The reason that I just didn’t want to put out names yet is because at some level I didn’t even really mean to slip up. I didn’t think I slipped up. I’m not hiding anything,” he said.
Because he’s had a relationship in the spotlight before, Ben is waiting to open up about his romance for now.
“Dating is fun and it’s exciting and I’ve been able to get back into it. So life’s good, but she’s not from Colton’s season. Not at all. Not from the show,” he said.
“I think you go through public relationships before and you kind of deal with that pressure. And there’s the right timing to it all, to kind of make it a thing and publicly put it out there.”
Even though Ben isn’t going public with the identity of his new flame, fans are convinced that it’s Nashville native Jessica Clarke.
“Apparently the story was that Jessica and Ben had briefly met at a bar in Nashville a while back and she kind of forgot about it/he didn’t seem interested at the time,” a Reddit user shared.
“A couple months later he slid into her dms saying something along the lines of ‘I just saw a photo of you pop up on my explore feed and remember meeting you in Nashville. I never dm girls but I figured I’d be stupid to pass up a second chance at getting to talk to you.’”
Wow, we cannot wait to see if Jessica is the woman Ben is dating!
