Valerie Bertinelli is feeling all the love after sharing some personal updates.

“When I go on my walks, I do a lot of reflecting. Sometimes sweet, sometimes challenging,” Bertinelli, 63, wrote via Instagram on Monday, April 22. “Reflecting on this week and the kindness all of you have shown me in our conversations at the Indulge book signings, and here online, I just wanted to send out a huge thank you for supporting me and for all your sweet responses to my life updates. 🥰.”

Alongside the message, Bertinelli shared a clip of her smiling while walking in a T-shirt that read, “Love yourself.” She added audio from Taylor Swift’s “The Tortured Poets Department,” off the pop star’s album of the same name, to the video.

“I truly love this community that we have built here,” Bertinelli concluded. “Thank you for sticking around. Through the challenging and through the sweet. 💜”

Bertinelli’s upload came on the heels of her going Instagram official with her boyfriend, Mike Goodnough. On Saturday, April 20, Bertinelli posted a pic of the couple wearing matching glasses and shared lyrics from Swift’s TTPD track “So High School.”

“🎶 I’ll drink what you think and I’m high from smokin’ your jokes all damn night 🎶♥️ @therealhoarse,” Bertinelli wrote. Goodnough took to the comments section to add, “They look happy, those two.”

Goodnough previously discussed his relationship with Bertinelli, joking that he was taken aback by all of the attention.

“There is apparently a rumor circulating alleging that Valerie Bertinelli and I are romantically involved somehow… that we are dating or are a couple even. Valerie Bertinelli! Star of the long-running hit series’ One Day at a Time and Hot in Cleveland,” he wrote on his Substack, “Hoarse Whispering” earlier this month. “The person who has won two Emmys and two Golden Globe Awards and hosted her own cooking show for fourteen seasons. The one who has written six books including a #1 New York Times best seller. That one.”

“It’s crazy the comfort level,” Bertinelli told People earlier this month, adding, “It feels incredibly right.”
