Love is in the air! Jason Tartick has officially confirmed that he and and Kaitlyn Bristowe are an item, just weeks after they went on a date. On Wednesday’s episode of The Today Show, Jason put rumors to rest, saying, “Right here, right now, yeah, that’s true. [It’s] Kaitlyn Bristowe.”
The camera then panned to Kaitlyn as she flaunted a bright smile. “I was going to use my podcast to break the news,” she said, referring to her podcast, Off the Vine, where she and Jason first met. “But I guess The Today Show beat me to it.” Jason then confirmed that they’ve been together for “about a month or so.”
Both Jason and Kaitlyn were part of The Bachelorette squad; Jason was a contestant on season 14 with Becca Kufrin, while Kaitlyn was one of the leading ladies in season 11. The news comes just a couple of months after Kaitlyn announced her split from Shawn Booth. Kaitlyn and Shawn were together for three years and planned on getting married before they decided to call it quits. “This difficult decision comes after thoughtful, respectful consideration. Even though we are parting as a couple, we’re very much committed to remaining friends,” they shared in a statement to People at the time.
Bachelorette fans who closely follow cast members online pretty much called Jason and Kaitlyn’s budding romance. Even before their date, they were getting rather flirtatious on social media. So we knew this was coming, but now we know for sure.
