The Bachelor love rekindles: Matt James posts first photos of a blossoming relationship
New York, New York – Matt James and Rachael Kirkconnell are proving all the rumors to be true and rekindling their romance in a very public way.
In the photo, Rachael is hugging a child as Matt looks on endearingly with a smile plastered across his heavily-bearded face.
The post isn't dedicated towards the pair's love affair, but it's hard to ignore the positive signs behind Matt sharing a picture with his ex after their split over Rachael's racially-insensitive past.
While Matt's caption is mostly about teaching youth the ins and outs of crypto and other financial matters, how he chose to start the caption is a bit suss.
The caption starts by saying, "The gift of conversation lies less in displaying it ourselves than in drawing it out of others," which seems to be a nod towards Rachael's promise to "do the work" in terms of understanding her white privilege and her past mistakes.
For the most part, fans seem happy that the two are working things out, with one commenting, "Proud of y'all" and another saying, "So glad she was given the chance to grow. Lift and push each other."
The 29-year-old shared more snaps from the day on his Instagram story with Rachael tagged and text that reads "today was a good day" followed by a heart emoji.
What the future holds for the two is unknown, but it's clear that they have fans in their corner, rooting for their fairy tale ending.
