When you’re a star, it’s hard to keep secrets; especially if you’re infamous. Bartise Bowden, a universally disliked cast member from Love Is Blind season 3 and Perfect Match season 1, experienced this firsthand after his baby mama Olivia Gross was brought to light despite his best efforts to keep her anonymous.
So, since it’s come to this, you might as well learn all about Bartise’s baby mama over this Olivia Gross Bio.
Meet Olivia Gross, Love Is Blind Star Bartise Bowden Baby Mama
Olivia Gross first came to light in April 2023, after Bartise Bowden filed court documents about his son, Aiden. In the paper, he listed Olivia as his child’s mother, according to Us Weekly.
So, since Aiden was born in December 2022, Olivia must have got pregnant around March 2022, right when Bartise returned from his Panamanian Perfect Match adventures. This leads us to believe that it could have been a one-night stand or a quick get-together — i.e. if they didn’t know each other beforehand. Plus, Olivia revealed in a TikTok that she didn’t realize she was pregnant until five months in — which further supports our point.
Are Bartise Bowden And Olivia Gross Together?
If we are to believe Olivia’s FB relationship status, Bartise Bowden and her are not together. But then again, many don’t like updating their dating status on social media.
Now, digging into their lives, Olivia, on TikTok, in July and June 2022 revealed that she was taken, but not in May. Bartise also posed an IG story on April 9 where he seemed to be to be enjoying Easter with a “woman” whose hand was seen resting on his dog. This “woman” could potentially be Olivia.
But that’s still in the past. We don’t know if the duo is still together or not. However, one thing’s clear — they were still on good terms and co-parenting their child. “Might’ve been the villain on tv, but I’m gonna be the hero for him. Instagram, meet my little man,” Bartise posted a pic with his son on IG.
Prior to Olivia, Bartise was in a relationship with his fiancee/Love Is Blind co-star Nancy Rodriguez. The two first connected through pods, matching each other’s vibe and built their chemistry through conversations surrounding families, love, and expectations.
But, everything said, it was not as if Bartise and Nancy didn’t explore romance with other contestants. In fact, Bartise had formed a bond with fellow fitness enthusiast Raven Ross and Nancy had also found a connection with Andrew Liu following their on-paper compatibility. However, Bartise parted ways with Raven as she did not want to lose the home-like happiness Nancy arose in him.
As for Nancy, she had both Andrew and Bartise on one knee for her. She rejected the former because of her love for Bartise.
Did you know: Bartise wishes he was able to see Love Is Blind before Perfect Match that way he could’ve had some time to grow. “There is a whole strategy that’s involved in this show because ultimately you’re there to win like you want to win the perfect match,” he explained. This was also why he had a taught time choosing between Abbey Humphreys and Izzy Fairthorne in the final episodes because he had to figure out who he could win with.
