Bachelor Nation — we’ve got some fresh tea for you!
It’s been a little while since we’ve caught up with The Bachelor’s Tia Booth, but according to her latest Instagram post, the Arkansas beauty has moved on and is doing just fine — with a new man by her side!
After a tumultuous summer filled with love and tears with now ex-boyfriend Colton Underwood (who ICYMI is going to be ABC‘s next Bachelor) it looks like Tia has found happiness with Cory Cooper.
Booth made it Insta-official with this post (below):
Although she didn’t tag Cooper in the pic, a source close to E! News confirmed his identity, saying:
“Tia is dating Cory Cooper. She has been traveling back and forth to Nashville recently within the past month to visit him and they are very happy.”
A little more social media digging revealed that Cory is the Executive Vice President of his family’s steel company, Cooper Steel, which his father and grandfather founded over 50 years ago in Tennessee. Cooper’s plethora of family photos on his Facebook profile tells us he’s probably a family guy, and this shot of him and Tia together on Halloween shows us he’s isn’t afraid to show off his new lady either:
The insider adds that regardless of the distance between them (a solid 325 miles from Arkansas to Nashville) the new couple is “making a huge effort” to see each other and things so far are “going well”:
“Tia really likes Corey, and they are enjoying getting to know each other right now.”
Wishing these two all the best!
We can’t help but wonder what Colton’s thinking right now, but considering the romantic journey he has ahead of him, we’ll assume he’s doing just fine.
What do y’all think of Tia’s new man? Do we ship this or not? Sound off, below!
