During a Q&A session with his fans on Instagram on Friday, March 20, The Bachelor‘s Peter Weber revealed that he’s planning on moving out of his parents’ house soon.
The 28-year-old pilot responded to a fan who asked “Any plans to not live at home?” He responded by singing, “I’m Leaving on a Jet Plane” by John Denver in a video with his parents in the background.

“But real talk yes, either NYC for about a year or LA,” he wrote on the video.
“Don’t let the door hit ya on the way out!” Weber’s dad joked as the pilot walked out the door.
“We’re empty nesters!” his mom, Barbara Weber, said in the background.
In January, Barbara gave fans some insight on why her son still lived at home.
“First of all, we are a very, very close family. Very close…we’re basically one. We support each other in every which way, and we’re each other’s best friends, not just parents. We’re everything to each other,” Barbara said on the Bachelor Party podcast.
His mom went on to explain that part of the reason why Weber lived at home well into his twenties was because of her Cuban culture.
“People forget: I’m Cuban, OK… In old time Cuba, the kids would be at home and in their 20s they would get married, and they would still live at home,” she said. “They would have children, and the grandparents… it was one big happy family. Everybody living at home.”
“So contrary to what a lot of people say like, ‘can’t wait to get rid of the kids,’ our culture is a little bit different, and not that one is right and one is wrong, we want to keep that family tie, that unity together,” Barbara added. “And that’s one of the reasons that Peter and my other son Jack are still living at home, because there’s no reason really to move out.”
She continued that Weber’s career as a pilot also factored into his decision to live with his family.
“Let’s say for Peter, he works four days a week,” his mom said. “Then he has four days off, and he goes with his friends away, like they take a little mini vacation wherever. And then he comes back, and he goes right back to work.”
She continued, “So is that really smart to be paying a lot of money, monthly, until you can buy a house? So I always tell him it’s best to save your money — which, he can buy a house tomorrow if he wanted it,”
Barbara then went on to say when it came to her son moving out, it would be a decision made as a family.
“Responsibly, he can do it, but I’m just looking for the right place for him when we do decide that he’s going to take that step … but we’re very happy living at home, everybody together,” she said.
