Kelley Flanagan has a new man in her life. The Bachelor star said that she was dating a Greek man named Ari Raptis. And thanks to his ethnicity, Kelley’s Greek mother was “thrilled to keep the Greek tradition going!”
Let’s get to know Kelley’s new boyfriend better as this Ari Raptis Bio proceeds.
Meet Ari Raptis, Kelley Flanagan Boyfriend
Ari Raptis first met Kelley Flanagan at a mutual friend’s wedding in Mykonos, Greece in the summer of 2021. However, the duo only started dating a year later with Ari first revealing their romance in June 2023 via an IG post captioned with three hearts.
“Great looking couple! Best of the lot! Guy of my dreams for my daughter……. Greek, Greek, Greek! What else can I ask for! He’s a dreamboat! That’s my generation describing one great catch! Go get him Kelley! We’re all behind you,” Kelley’s mother Connie commented on the post.
Obviously, given Connie’s a proud Greek, she was happy that her daughter was dating someone with the same roots. Also, a source close to the family told, “He’s also Greek, and her Greek mother is thrilled to keep the Greek tradition going!”
The news about the pair comes just a little over a month after Peter Weber confirmed his split from Kelley after three years of dating. He hinted at their break up in an appearance at a beauty convention in Calgary, Canada, as he joked that he’s attracted to a woman’s eyebrows, and when the beauty guru beside him teased that her colleague would get his “legs hair-free” for his “future wife,” he replied, “I’ve still gotta find her.”
Later, when the esthetician told her followers, “Ladies, he’s still single. He’s in Calgary,” Peter added, “I am. First time here.”
Kelley and Peter first met at the Super Bowl in Miami in February 2020. “We chat, we end up hanging out and that’s when I got her number,” Peter shared. “We started to communicate and just stay in touch.”
Within two months, the duo revealed that they were “fully dating.”
However, in Jan 2021, the former couple shocked the fans with the news about their break up. “Kelley and I broke up two weeks ago. I flew to Chicago and was finished with the relationship,” Peter said at the time.
They reconnected some time later and confirmed that they had rekindled their romance in September 2022 only to break up soon after.
