Former Bachelor star Tia Booth is happy in her new relationship, but like the Spice Girls once said, “If you wanna be my lover, you gotta get with my friends.”
The Arkansas native is super close with fellow Bachelor contestant Raven Gates, which is why we’re surprised that she has yet to introduce her to new boyfriend Cory Cooper.
A fan reached out on Twitter earlier this week and asked, “Need to know if Raven Gates approves of Tia’s man!!!”
And Tia responded, “HA they haven’t met yet!”
As most fans know, the Bachelor in Paradise star recently went public with her new man on social media, sharing photos of the cute couple on the field at an NFL game.
Though he lives in Nashville and she lives in Arkansas, they still find time to make their relationship work.
“Tia really likes Corey, and they are enjoying getting to know each other right now,” a source revealed to E! News.
“The distance hasn’t been an issue and they have been making a huge effort in seeing each other.”
This relationship comes just a few months after Tia and new Bachelor Colton Underwood finally ended their on-and-off relationship.
“It’s a relief to close that chapter of my life. We’re in a good place. We’re in a solid friend zone,” Tia told People back in September about Colton.
“And it’s honestly nice to move forward instead of wanting something when it’s not there.”
Colton is of course the new leading man on the latest season of The Bachelor, and Tia wished him all the best on social media prior to filming.
“Never ever regret following your heart. Things may not always work out as you planned, but they always work out as they should,” she wrote.
“Thankful that this chapter of our lives has ended so new chapters can begin. I truly wish you the best, C.”
