The Bachelor's Kaitlyn Bristowe and Jason Tartick Celebrate Valentine's Day on Romantic Getaway
The Bachelorette alumni confirmed their relationship during an appearance on the Today show in late January
Tartick wished his girlfriend a happy Valentine’s Day on Instagram on Thursday — making it not only the first holiday they celebrated together, but also their first official social media post as a couple.
“So grateful for you,” he captioned a photo of Bristowe wrapping her hands around his neck.
Bristowe also dedicated a post to Tartick, sharing a lengthy quote about the importance of finding true happiness.
“Thank you @jason_tartick for being you,” she wrote.
Bristowe, 33, and Tartick, 30, jetted off to Boston for a romantic Valentine’s Day weekend together.
After checking into their spacious hotel suite, the couple dressed up for a fancy dinner at Bistro Du Midi. Bristowe shared a video of Tartick blowing her a kiss as they enjoyed their meal.
The two threw a private dance party when they returned to the hotel, singing along to the Hamilton and Aladdin soundtracks.
“Yeah, that’s true,” Tartick said in a live interview when asked if they are official.
Bristowe, who also appeared on the morning news program, said, “I mean, I was going to use my podcast to break the news, but I guess the Today show beat me to it!”
Tartick, who met Bristowe on her podcast — Off the Vine with Kaitlyn Bristowe — said that they’ve been a steady item for “about a month or so.”
“We were friends. A little banter here and there and friendship turned into a relationship,” he explained.
The new Bachelor Nation couple’s relationship comes nearly three months after Bristowe confirmed her split from Shawn Booth — whom she met, fell in love with and got engaged to on the season 19 finale of The Bachelorettein 2015 — in November.
“After three incredible years, we have decided to go our separate ways. This difficult decision comes after thoughtful, respectful consideration. Even though we are parting as a couple, we’re very much committed to remaining friends and we will continue to support each other,” they said in a joint statement. “Due to the nature of how we met, our relationship has always been very public, and we have enjoyed sharing it with all of you, but we ask that you respect our decision and our privacy at this time.”

“It’s nerve-wracking every time I pick up my phone. I haven’t been on Twitter in months just because I don’t want to scroll the mentions. Going on Instagram, I do that for business purposes, and always get caught with scrolling. that’s always tough. You just have a pit in your stomach.”
He continued: “That’s the hard part and with her moving on so quickly, I just have a tough time understanding why she would put this out everywhere, or blasting it all over the place, knowing that it could hurt.”
Tartick placed third on Becca Kufrin‘s season of The Bachelorette last year.
