Bachelorette Michelle Young & fiance Nayte Olukoya reunite with her ex Joe Coleman in new photo

MICHELLE Young & her fiancé Nayte Olukoya reunited with her ex Joe Coleman in a new photo, weeks after their proposal aired on the Bachelorette's season finale.

The reality star's ex was also vying for her heart on the show, but Michelle sent him home just before the final rose ceremony.

It appears there are no hard feelings between the exes as the trio posed for a group shot on her Instagram Stories.

In the close-up snap, Michelle held her fiancé close as they both smiled at the camera.

Joe looked in good spirits as well as he leaned in for the photo holding up a peace sign.

The basketball player was sent home in week eight of the series leaving Nayte and Brandon Jones the final two contestants.

Michelle chose Nayte in the end, telling Brandon that her "heart is pushing [me] in a different direction from what I feel."

The snap comes days after Michelle flashed her engagement ring while she posed for photos on Santa's lap with her husband-to-be.

The couple shared a series of photos of them sitting on Santa's lap.

In the first of three, Michelle held up her hand showing off her engagement ring while Nayte smiled and made a peace sign with his fingers.

In the other two, Nayte maintained his post while Michelle smiled for the camera.

The Bachelorette star captioned her post: "Santa brought my Christmas present a little early this year.

"Although he may be regretting it after Nayte REQUESTED to sit on his lap."

Nayte owned up to the visit with Santa being his idea in his post, writing: "Believe it or not, but I had to drag Michelle's cute butt to go take a picture with Santa."


After it was revealed that Nayte was selected as the winner of this season, meaning Brandon was sent packing, rumors circulated abut Michelle's friends' fears regarding her choice.

A source told The Sun exclusively that while Michelle and Nayte are "still together and happy" friends believe it's an "act."

Her family also "doesn't believe it will last," according to the insider.

"They have an undeniable connection, no one is questioning that," the source said of Nayte.

"But it's like they're in a constant honeymoon phase they can't really get out of. Their relationship doesn't really seem like an adult relationship.

"They're like two teenagers running around thinking this is the one but his family is very concerned.

"It's nothing against Michelle, they think she's great but they don't think Nayte is ready for marriage, not by a longshot.

"On top of that, they think this whole reality TV thing is ridiculous."

Per the source, Michelle's parents trust her, but also "had doubts" and "expressed their own concern."

The insider alleged: "Their close circle is trying to stay positive but they don't see this continuing once they finally wake up from this dream.

"Michelle is a lot more mature than Nayte and that's led to some issues already but it will most likely lead to much bigger issues in the future.

"They see red flags that Michelle refuses to see and she most likely won't ever see it until they break up."


Following the finale, the pair appeared on Good Morning America to discuss their relationship.

Michelle said during the appearance: "We're still kind of on an emotional high and excited and everything but this has been crazy.

"I never thought I'd be in a situation where I'd be in love with two different people but this position that you put yourself in, that's something that's very likely to happen.

"With Nayte, he's the person I could not imaging living without, and the way we connected on so many different levels, it's where my heart was guiding me and I definitely made the right choice."

Nayte confessed during the show that he had "never been in love" before, but assured fans: "I feel very lucky that the first person I fell in love with is going to be the person I spend the rest of my life with."

The happy couple are planning on a short engagement, hoping to tie the knot this summer.
