Katie and John haven’t spoken publicly about their rekindled relationship just yet, but it’s clear they’re very happy with each other. In the video, Katie had the biggest smile on her face after meeting up with John and sharing a kiss.

John captioned the video, “I really like it here.” He also tagged Katie’s TikTok handle. She later responded, “Me too.” John and Katie both reposted the adorable video on their Instagram Stories.

Katie revealed that she was dating John again on the final day of her “12 Days of Messy” challenge. The former Bachelorette dedicated the Taylor Swift song “Begin Again” to John. The song is notably about the end of one romance and the start of another. Rumors had been swirling for a while about Katie and John since they had been publicly hanging out post-Bachelorette.

Katie and John first met during The Bachelorette season 17. He was actually sent home in week two of the competition, and Katie ended up getting engaged to Blake Moynes at the end of the season. However, the couple announced that they were breaking up and ending their engagement on October 25 after less than a year of dating.

“It is with mutual love and respect that we have decided to go our separate ways,” Katie and Blake said in a joint statement. “We are so grateful for the moments we shared together and the entire journey that has unfolded this year, but we ultimately have concluded that we are not compatible as life partners, and it is the most caring choice for both of us to move forward independently.”
