New Couple Alert: Matt Grant and Sarah Robarts

by at .  Updated at .

Shayne Lamas who?

Former star of The Bachelor Matt Grant has not given up on love since his split with his airhead reality TV fling. The British hunk is head over heels in love again — this time for his British-born public relations representative, Sarah Robarts.

Matt Grant, 28, says his business relationship with Sarah Robarts, 39 and a single mother of two, eventually evolved into a serious emotional bond.

“It’s the best relationship I have ever been in,” Grant said. “I’m completely in love. She’s extremely beautiful inside and out. She’s one in a million.”

Matt Grant has ditched Shayne Lamas for his rep, Sarah Robarts.

Sure, he said these things about Shayne Lamas too, but everyone figured he was going to dump that annoying ditz in a matter of weeks. And he did.

When the two first met following Matt Grant’s starring role (and engagement to Lamas) on The Bachelor, it was all business.

But even then, he says, “I couldn’t help but think, ‘Man she’s hot.’”

The fianancier's rocky relationship with Lamas ended in July. Months later, Grant and Sarah Robarts went out for drinks that turned into a date.

“We connected on every level,” he says. “If she were on The Bachelor, there would not have been a competition. It would’ve been the shortest season ever.”

Oh, snap, Shayne!

And the couple’s 11-year age difference "is not an issue,” he says. “Sarah is very much on my level. The only thing is I’ve had to bring my game up since the Bachelor. She’s way too intelligent for some of the talk I used on the show.”

Oh, snap again, Shayne!

The two aren't rushing things, Matt says: “I’m trying to play it cool, but I feel blessed. We have a wonderful relationship and I hope we continue forever."

"It’s just so ironic that I came all the way over from England to find love on The Bachelor in America. And in the end, I fall in love with a Brit.”
