Though Bella hasn’t yet gone social media official with Will, she has teased fans with a few clues.

In an Instagram Q&A, one fan asked Bella and her Bachelor co-star and friend Bec Cvilikas if they were off the market.

“There has been a lot of speculation around this lately,” Bec answered. “I’m just cruising, I’m just going with the flow, what are you doing?” she asked, turning the camera to Bella.

The brunette beauty swiftly replied: “I’m not dating anyone from the reality world.”

Bella was previously rumoured to be dating Adam Todd who starred on Elly and Becky Miles’ season of The Bachelorette.

During the Bachelor finale, Bella was left dumbfounded when Locky confessed that he’d chosen Irena despite telling Bella he’d fallen in love with her the day before.

Once the show was done and dusted, Bella revealed to her fans in an Instagram post that when the former Survivor star told her he loved her she “believed him and trusted him whole heartedly.”

“We connected on so many levels right from the beginning, some you saw, but most you didn’t. Having three months outside of filming completely changed the aspect of the show, it brought normality to the connection and we grew into what felt like a real relationship,” she confessed.

“Looking back, I’m proud of myself. I gave it my all, I was true to myself and I wore my heart on my sleeve. Whilst it’s not my fairytale ending, the laughs and the memories will last a lifetime,” she added, before thanking everyone who lent their support to her along the way.

Meanwhile Bella’s ex and Irena are still head over heels for each other and have left the Bachie world behind them, with the couple currently travelling around South Australia.

Sharing a loved-up snap of herself and Locky kissing, the season eight winner wrote: “When your life is a fairytale, still pinching myself. Together I know we can achieve anything.”
