Blake Hortsmann and Giannina Gibelli are becoming roommates after he asked her to move into his Colorado home.
After one year of dating, Bachelor Nation’s Blake and Love Is Blind’s Giannina, 29, are moving in together. The pair first sparked dating rumors when they posted New Year’s Eve photos from the same location. Six months later, they confirmed they were dating, and on November 19, Gibelli announced she had moved in. In an Instagram Story, Giannina shared a photo of Blake’s house and his sweet request written in the snow. The Love Is Blind alum captioned it, “He officially asked me to move in and I took over the closet.” Blake, 33, then commented that she was a “Colorado” girl now.

The couple who met on the set of Paramount+ reality show competition, All Star Shore, said in June of this year that they are very happy. Blake shared photos of himself with Giannina and captioned them, “Just so damn happy,” to which she responded, “we’re REALLY good at keeping secrets. I’m so happy my love.” Giannina told E! News in July that she was already hoping for a future with Blake before she moved into his home. “I’m definitely not uncomfortable talking about being engaged to him or just spending the rest of my life with them.”
Gibelli told the news outlet that she would be the happiest person in the world if they spent the rest of their lives together. “But no rush. Everything has its own time and needs to develop naturally, but honestly, I’m good. This is it. This is it for me.” Blake first appeared on the Bachelorette in 2018 when he made the final two during Becca Kufrin’s season. He didn’t find love and appeared in 2019’s Bachelor In Paradise where he ended up in a love triangle with Kaelin Miller and Kristina Schulman. They confronted him for hooking up with both of the women at Stage Coach before the show began. Blake left the show single.
While on Love Is Blind, which premiered in 2020, Giannina got engaged to Damian Powers, but he didn’t say “I Do” to her when they got to the altar. Still, the two tried to work on their relationship as seen in Love Is Blind: After the Altar, but things didn’t work out and by August of 2021, Giannina said she was officially single.
