All’s well that ends well… especially for Bachelor alum Becca Tilley! After 4 years of being together, Becca and her girlfriend, Hayley Kiyoko, have finally decided to take their relationship public, and Becca has nothing but kind words to say.
She told Us Weekly, “I just think that my relationship that I’m in is just, I like that it’s private and it’s my own. I had a public relationship before and it just felt like I had a lot of people involved, which I know that’s why they sort of watched me in the first place. I’m really happy and I hope to eventually start opening up about it more, but I’m happy with it being private right now.”
Becca said, “I just feel if the moment comes where I’m like, ‘Oh, I’m just going to say something,’ then I will.”
Over the years, on her podcast Scrubbing In, Becca had mentioned her lengthy relationship with Hayley, but never revealed who it was with. Even so, the fans have been speculating about the romance for years.
Hayley dropped a new song and music video titled, “For The Girls”, which was a direct reference to Becca’s Bachelor roots. At the end of the video, Becca steps out of the limo, seemingly catching Hayley’s eye. Shortly after the video went live, Becca took to instagram to gush about her girlfriend.
In an Instagram Story, She wrote, “I have been crying on & and off all day. I don’t know that I can properly form adequate words to express how much the love and support means, but I just want to say thank you, and to everyone who has known about us for the last 4 years and gave us the time and space to do it in our own time — the magnitude of that alone is not lost on me. I am so grateful.”
She concluded her sweet message with, “Hayley, thank you for showing me how to be brave and how to love myself. I’m so glad I don’t have to avoid pronouns on the podcast now. I love you.”
How precious! Yet another modern love story to add to The Bachelor alumni books!
