An Instagram post by the ex-Bachelorette star Michelle Young after her divorce with Nayte Olukoya claims that she is “happier.” Three photographs of Young alone were accompanied by a single-word caption. Ayah the Light's “Good Vibes” was the accompanying song when she published the photos on her Instagram story.
Fans, including Rachel Recchia, Rachael Kirkconnell, and Natalie Lee (who has been linked to Bachelorette alum Blake Moynes in the past), welcomed Young's new appearance and apparent excitement in the comments section.
Michelle Young is in a nice mood today.
A few months after she and Nayte Olukoya broke up, the Bachelorette alum turned to Instagram to inform her followers of her current situation. Happy, she stated in the accompanying message.
It didn't take long for fans of The Bachelor to rally around Michelle, who appeared on season 18 of The Bachelorette after finishing as Matt James' runner-up.
For her part, Becca Kufrin emailed the reality star three fire emojis, and Jesse Palmer replied with the message, “Happy looks good on you!” Additionally, Ryan Claytor—who featured with Matt on his season of The Bachelor—said, “*snaps fingers* you better.”
After Michelle and Nayte got engaged on the season 18 finale of The Bachelorette, they broke up six months later. The two turned to Instagram Stories to make public their decision to part ways.
At the end of the month of June, Michelle said, “I am struggling to announce that Nayte and I will be going our separate ways.” We both feel the weight of this relationship because it is so genuine to us. I stand with him in that.”
