Their chemistry was so strong, even Bachelor Nation took notice. But, Kelley left six weeks later. The couple reconnected in Chicago back in April. Despite the romance rumors, Peter and Kelley denied they were dating. Then Peter finally confirmed their relationship on Instagram.

Peter Weber shares a romantic photo with Kelley on Instagram
Per People, Kelley Flanagan and Peter Weber are still going strong. On Monday, May 25, the pilot shared a photo of him and Kelley about to kiss in the sunlight. The photo looks like the cover of a romance novel. Even some of their friends and family caught the love bug.
“My little ray of sunshine,” Peter captioned the Instagram post.
Bachelor Nation poured in with comments over the romantic post. Peter’s outspoken mother, Barbara Weber, wrote, “Picture Perfect!!!!” Even Peter’s former Bachelor contestants, Alayah Benavidez and Kelsey Weier, shared their input.
“Ok this is actually really cute!” Kelsey wrote.
“This is too friggin adorable,” Alayah added. “My heart.”
In late March, amid the coronavirus pandemic, Peter flew to Chicago to stay with Kelley in her apartment. Two weeks later, People confirmed that the two were officially “a couple.” The couple confirmed the news on Instagram and have been sharing their relationship on social media.
Pilot Pete explains why he “ultimately picked” Kelley
Peter Weber went on The Bachelor to date 30 women. He got engaged to Hannah Ann Sluss and briefly reconciled with Madison Prewett. But, he ended up with his fifth-place contestant, Kelley Flanagan. According to the pilot, it was meant to be. Per Gold Derby, Peter talked about his “unorthodox” relationship with Kelley in a Cameo video message recorded for Sage’s 16th birthday.
To be completely honest, I think just the nature of the show definitely works and I’ve said that since Day 1. I still believe it works, but I think specifically for the type of relationship between, you know, Kelley and myself just wasn’t the most organic type of situation for us that was going to work.”
Peter accepts the fact that his relationship with Kelley didn’t work the first time around. And he’s okay with that. The 28-year-old also recalled a conversation he had with Hannah Brown on The Bachelorette in which he shared a Spanish saying that his grandmother told him that translates to “no matter what happens, let the waters run.”
“That’s kind of been our relationship,” Peter continued. “We’ve kept coming back in each other’s lives. So the way I look at it, definitely an unorthodox way but definitely worked in the end.”
Peter even brought out Kelley to sing “Happy Birthday” to Sage before sharing some dating advice. Kelley simply told the teen to “just have fun.” Meanwhile, Peter jokingly told her try out for The Bachelor before offering her a virtual rose.
