The reality star confirmed her new romance in February 2021 with a PDA-filled pic. “Happy Valentine’s Day @admandew,” she captioned the Instagram Stories snap of them kissing while riding horses, adding a heart emoji.
She followed that sweet moment with an Instagram Story photo of the twosome holding hands, writing, “Feeling all the love. Happy Valentine’s Day y’all.”
Brown and Woolard sparked dating speculation in January 2021 when they were photographed walking through downtown Los Angeles while holding hands. Days before their PDA-filled sighting, a fan account shared pics of the twosome grabbing a bite in Nashville.
In December 2020, Brown teased a look at her new man after a fan asked her to share a pic from her “last date” during an Instagram challenge. She responded by posting a selfie she took with an individual whose head was covered by a smiling face emoji.
A source exclusively told Us Weekly how the pair are a “great match” for each other. “They’re both from the South. He’s into working out, staying fit and enjoys doing a lot of sports: kickboxing, soccer, baseball, tennis — you name it,” the insider revealed in January 2021, adding that Woolard is “nice” and “down-to-earth.”
Fans previously watched Brown search for love while competing on Colton Underwood’s season of The Bachelor, which aired in 2019. During her Bachelorette journey later that year, the Dancing With the Stars champion got engaged to Jed Wyatt. She later broke off her engagement to Wyatt and asked out runner-up Tyler Cameron during the live season finale.
Though Cameron went on to briefly date Gigi Hadid before she reconciled with Zayn Malik, Brown reconnected with the Florida native early on during the coronavirus pandemic. They have since chosen to remain friends.
“We have a great friendship,” the Barkitecture host told Us Weekly exclusively in May 2020. “We both care about each other a lot and want each other to be happy. … It was nice to kind of put our past behind us and be able to have that friendship again. It’s a very, very nice thing to have.”
Brown has continued to share glimpses at her romantic life, even as she reentered the dating world late last year. At the time, she opened up about what she is looking for in a significant other.
“I want a man, not a boy who just has their crap together, can be a rock and be, like, super supportive of me,” she said in a YouTube video posted in November 2020. “But also, right now, it doesn’t really matter. I just want a cute guy to hang out with and take me on a date. … Somebody [who] can buy my drinks, my food, my coffee. I like coffee dates. I’m more into that. I think, like, a surfing date would be fun. Skateboarding? I don’t know. I just want it to be very relaxed.”
The Alabama native continued, “Somebody [who] can buy my drinks, my food, my coffee. I like coffee dates. I’m more into that. I think, like, a surfing date would be fun. Skateboarding? I don’t know. I just want it to be very relaxed.”
