Daisy Kent may not have received Joey Graziadei’s final rose on The Bachelor, but she may have found love with new man Thor Herbst.

Us Weekly exclusively confirmed the pair’s romance earlier this month, with a source revealing that Herbst reached out to Kent after she came in second place on season 28 of The Bachelor. Kent, 25, and winner Kelsey Anderson warmed viewers’ hearts by arriving at Graziadei’s final rose ceremony together. (Fans saw Kent and Graziadei, 28, mutually end things prior to his proposal to Anderson, 25.)

Kent later revealed during the March season finale After the Final Rose special that she had turned down an offer to become the next Bachelorette, leaving Jenn Tran to make history as the series’ first Asian leading lady.

Kent then hinted at new developments in her love life during an April episode of the “Almost Famous” podcast, revealing that she had been on “multiple dates with the same person.” She told cohost Ashley Iaconetti, “You never know how time’s going to go, but I would say I’m happy right now, and it’s looking positive.”
