As it turns out Pete had a history with the wedding planner prior to his stint on the reality TV show.
"Rach and I are together now for the first time. We had been seeing each other only casually before the show," he revealed.
"After filming concluded, we reconnected and I simply fell head over heels.
"We've now met each other's families and will be spending Christmas together, including a secret little getaway."
Speaking to Bachelorette Becky immediately after the finale, she admitted she had been "blindsided" by Pete calling time on their romance.
"We spent about three days together and we had a lovely time. I think that's why I was quite blindsided when he broke it off because, you know, in those moments he was saying all the right things," Becky told Now To Love.
"Once we were back home I gave him a little bit of space and then we had a FaceTime call and he just expressed to me that he'd realised that he didn't really think there was a spark there."
"I was absolutely devastated."
Torn between her head, Pete, and her heart, Adrian, Becky believed the 34-year-old Adelaide business owner was the type of "husband material" she could build a life with.
"I thought Pete was worth the risk."
