Vanessa Grimaldi and her new beau are Instagram official!

On Monday, The Bachelor alum, 31, shared a photo of herself and Canadian businessman Josh Wolfe.

“#Mcm,” Grimaldi captioned the shot, which shows Wolfe planting a sweet kiss on Grimaldi’s forehead while the two stood in front of a palm tree in Boca Raton, Florida.

PEOPLE confirmed Grimaldi is dating Wolfe, the Director of Outreach and Programming for Quebec and Atlantic Canada for the Centre for Israel and Jewish Affairs, last week.

The pair met through mutual friends and have been dating for a few months, the source says.

Grimaldi — who split from former Bachelor Nick Viall, 37, in August 2017, five months after his season 21 finale aired — previously opened up about her heartbreak to PEOPLE.

“My relationship with Nick and experience on The Bachelor has given me so many amazing and memorable moments in my life, and I am forever grateful,” Grimaldi explained.

“Nick and I were always transparent about the challenges in a relationship,” she said at the time. “We certainly had ours. I fell for him hard, and when you fall in love that hard, your heart breaks even harder.”

“Breakups aren’t easy, letting go of the idea of what could’ve been isn’t easy either, but I’m trying to stay optimistic about the future and that one day the person that I’m meant to be with and start a family with — when the timing is right — we will find our way to each other.”

“In the end, as much as we loved each other and tried to make it work, we just realized we were different people fighting to keep a relationship when ultimately we just weren’t the best fit for each other,” Grimaldi said of her relationship with Viall.
