The Bachelorette winner Jed Wyatt has gone Instagram official with his Miami-based girlfriend Ellen Decker.
Jed, who split from Hannah Brown five weeks after their engagement filmed for The Bachelorette’s fifteenth season, let the world know on Thanksgiving he’s in a new relationship and serious about Ellen.
Late last week, Jed, 25, shared a photo of himself and Ellen riding a jet ski together in Miami, FL.
In the caption, Jed called the blonde beauty “the only person to make me smile more than riding a jetski.” Jed also seemingly revealed “Jellen” as the couple’s nickname in one of his hashtags for the post.
The other hashtags Jed added were #sorecheeks #sunburnt and #hotbabesonjetskis.
For Ellen’s part, she uploaded a selfie of the couple celebrating the holiday together, writing that she was “extra thankful this year.”
Ellen also added the following hashtags to her post: #happiness #thankful #youresoyummy #wereglowingsohard #thankyousips.
In addition, the pair both thanked Mike Mastroberti, a sales director at an aviation company, in their posts for introducing them to one another.
Later in the weekend, Jed and Ellen apparently went shopping together in a mall, which Ellen documented in her latest Instagram Story.
“Reasons why I like him so much,” Ellen wrote on a video of Jed stretching himself out on an escalator similar to a scene of Will Ferrell in the movie Elf.
According to her Instagram account, Ellen is a personal trainer, model and teacher who moved to Miami in late 2017.
Prior to moving to Miami, Ellen, a Massachusetts native, attended Southern New Hampshire University and was a member of the school’s women’s lacrosse team, according to SNHU’s athletics website.
In September, Jed told People that he was ready to leave his The Bachelorette experience in the past.
“All in all, life’s changed: perspective and lessons were learned. I’m pushing forward to be better in every aspect that I can be,” Jed said. “I just want to pursue my life as Jed, kind of a new path. Hopefully, not carry the baggage of The Bachelorette.”
The aspiring country singer from Nashville, TN, also told Us Weekly at the time he wasn’t “necessarily looking” for dates.
“I’m just praying that things fall into place as they should. I’m just trying to focus on myself,” Jed explained.
But then Jed debuted Ellen on social media in late October by posting videos of a lunch date on Instagram Stories, followed by a sunset they had enjoyed together.
Jed got engaged to Hannah on Season 15 of The Bachelorette, but she dumped him nearly a month later because Jed had lied to her about his dating history.
Jed initially told Hannah that his romance with ex Haley Stevens ended one week before taping commenced, but Haley told People in June that Jed left Nashville to film the show in March still dating her.
Haley also alleged in her interview Jed had said he was only going on the show to promote his music and they’d resume their relationship once he returned home.
Jed quickly became a controversial figure and the target of hate as The Bachelorette fans rallied around Hannah during and after the finale aired in late July on ABC.
Jed apologized for his behavior multiple times on the finale and insisted he truly loved Hannah, but it just wasn’t enough to convince Hannah to stay in the toxic relationship. The former couple apparently had problems even before the Haley incident occurred.
As for Hannah, she recently won the mirrorball trophy on Dancing with the Stars’ 28th season with her professional partner Alan Bersten.
Hannah has said on numerous occasions she’s not interested in dating anyone right now, including her The Bachelorette runner-up Tyler Cameron, who has recently been spotted with Kylie Jenner’s best friend Anastasia Karanikolaou.
Tyler moved on with Anastasia, whom he’s reportedly hooking up with, shortly after his summer fling of nearly two months with supermodel Gigi Hadid ended in early October.
