Aurora Culpo is making headlines for her romance with Paul Bernon following his split from ex-fiancée Bethenny Frankel.

Us Weekly broke the news in May that Frankel and Bernon had called off their engagement months prior after six years together. Shortly thereafter, he was making headlines with Olivia Culpo’s older sister, Aurora. (DeuxMoi was first to report that they were spotted cozying up.)

“Aurora and Paul have been dating for over two months now,” a source told Us in June about Bernon’s new romance. “He moved on very quickly after Bethenny.”

Bernon was also photographed with Aurora at a few events in Rhode Island during Olivia and Christian McCaffrey’s wedding weekend in late June. However, he did not attend the ceremony.

She launched the “Barely Filtered” podcast in April 2023 and offered details about her relationship with Bernon during a July episode, recorded before Olivia’s wedding.

“My relationship with my ex hasn’t been smooth sailing every day, but we both made the choice to show a mutual respect even on the days we don’t fully feel it,” Aurora told her Instagram followers in December 2023. “We choose to lean into the shared love for our kids. And [acknowledged] an understanding that how we speak about each other and treat each other is potentially the greatest gift we can give our kids.”
