First all, apparently 29-year-old Bachelor star/singer Carly Waddell has had a boyfriend for the last 6 months! I apologize Bachelor Nation for failing in my fidiciary duties because I was not on top of this situation. But apparently she just broke up with said boyfriend —Nashville, Tennessee singer/songwriter Erik DiNardo. Interesting since 6 months ago would be August of 2015 and Bachelor in Paradise had barely wrapped.
“Erik and I broke up the day after Valentine’s Day. It was really sad and completely unexpected, on both of our parts,” she told Us Weekly.
“In the long run it would be even harder to do — but it would also be inevitable. I am just one of those ‘everything happens for a reason’ people. So I can’t live in yesterday and I don’t want to.”
She also won us over on season 2 of Bachelor in Paradise when she skipped her brother’s wedding to find love in 3 weeks on ABC. She fell head over heels for costar Kirk DeWindt and was devastated when he broke up with her just before the finale.
Recently she appeared at Jade and Tanner’s wedding to sing a song that she wrote for the two of them.
