Kaitlyn Bristowe might be on her way to finding true love—or something like that—on The Bachelorette.
But Britt Nilsson, who lost the bachelorette title to Kaitlyn Bristowe, is picking up the pieces after her relationship with Brady Toops came to an end.
Though Britt and Brady posted their first Instagram photo and seemed happy, it just wasn't meant to be. Nilsson and Toops announced their split earlier this week.
Today, Britt opened up on Instagram about her split with Toops: “Yes, it is true--@bradytoops and I are no longer together. We had a wonderful, sweet, and life-giving relationship that I appreciated, learned from, and thoroughly enjoyed.”
“Brady is one of the most genuine, godly, encouraging, generous, kind, intelligent, and all-around amazing men on the planet," Nilsson caption a pic of herself with her former beau.
Despite what seems to have been a happy relationship, the duo couldn’t make it work.
"We broke up about two months ago, but still remain very close friends. I couldn't be more blessed by who he is as a person--I will forever respect and adore him," she continued.
"We feel that God brought us into each other's lives for a purpose so we continue to support one another in all we do.”
This isn’t the first time Nilsson has had to deal with heartbreak. On season 19 of The Bachelor, she fell for Chris Soules. But he ultimately chose Whitney Bischoff.
Britt and Brady met while filming The Bachelorette. The Nashville resident left the show to be with Britt once Kaitlyn was chosen as the season 11 bachelorette.
Nilsson took a few sentences to thank her fans: ”Thank you for being so kind and caring as our journey unfolded on tv. We love you guys, and appreciate your investment in our relationship," Nilsson added.
She added, “Just because we didn't work out romantically doesn't mean we don't continue to value and love each other as brother and sister in Christ!”
“We communicate candidly & frequently and will remain in each others lives as great friends. It was always a beautiful, honest, and valuable relationship, and continues to be."
