Chris Harrison is addressing the elephant in the room, aka Bachelor Peter Weber’s new relationship with Kelley Flanagan. And he’s claiming that the pilot’s mom, Barb, would totally approve. Phew!

The Bachelor Nation host, 48, recently sat down for a virtual interview with Access, where he discussed rumors about Weber and Flanagan. Harrison revealed that he knows Barb would support the couple, because she pretty much gave her stamp of approval during The Bachelor finale.  

“I know Barb would approve, because Barb was kind of starstruck when she met Kelley at the After the Final Rose special,” he said. “So, it’s Barb-approved. It’s Peter-approved. It’s Bachelor Nation-approved.”

Harrison also hinted that The Bachelor format didn’t work for Weber and Flanagan, adding, “In all seriousness, they had this great chemistry even when they met before the show. The show just wasn’t right for them. The show wasn’t right for Kelley and it didn’t help them foster that relationship, so maybe, just maybe his love story is not done.” Whoa.

Harrison went on to explain why Weber has been so secretive about his new fling. “He’s been through a lot. His family has been through a lot, so I think he’s trying to pump the breaks as much you can while you’re quarantining with a woman, but I think he’s trying to officially say, ‘Hey, I’m gonna take it slow here.’ And that’s probably the smart thing to do,” he continued.

Anything for Barb.
