Their relationship status update, which was first reported by Us Weekly, just comes after it was revealed that Weber has been staying with Flanagan in her Chicago apartment since last month amid the ongoing social distancing orders.
In early April, the 28-year-old pilot explained how his living situation came to be during an appearance on Nick Viall’s podcast, The Viall Files.
“She’s always been supportive of me,” Weber said. “Long story short, I wasn’t working so I thought I’d go out there [to Chicago] and spend some time with her, take her mind off some [family] things. This was right when everything was starting to hit with the quarantine stuff … and it kind of just became a thing where we’ve always gotten along really well, and had really good chemistry. We just enjoy each other’s company.”
At the time, Weber denied he was dating Flanagan.
“Are we dating? No. Do I love spending time with her? Absolutely,” he told Viall. “We’re not dating. Could I see that in the future? Yeah, of course. I’d be extremely lucky and very happy if that happened. Of anyone, I’m the last person that needs to rush into any kind of relationship. I just had an engagement that didn’t work out. I just was trying to pursue things with another woman that didn’t work out. That’s why right now, I’m just taking it really, really slow.”
However, Weber did admit to Kaitlyn Bristowe on her Off the Vine podcast that he was definitely “crushing on Kelley.”
“We have just been enjoying each other’s time and company, I love being around her,” he said. “She’s been so amazing, so patient with me. It’s exactly … what I needed in this kind of situation and I’m so grateful for her.”
The pilot also appeared on Rachel Lindsay and Becca Kufrin’s Bachelor Happy Hour podcast, where the hosts pressed him for more details on his and Flanagan’s relationship and living situation. (Weber and Flanagan are also living with Dustin Kendrick, another Bachelorette alum.)
“You said you’re taking it slow and you’re not dating, yet you literally called where you are ‘home’ right now,” Lindsay said to Weber. “You said, ‘I’m just making this my home base.’ That kind of sounds fast, to see each other every day. How many bedrooms does Kelley have?”
“She’s got three bedrooms … we each have our own room,” Weber said. “And we’ve got Sophie here too, Dustin’s dog, so we’re having a party. It’s a good time.”
In late-March, Weber and Flanagan were spotted together in Chicago – not long after he broke things off with Madison Prewett – which fueled dating rumors.
