ICYMI Tayshia Adams Was Spotted Out Looking at Engagement Rings With Boyfriend Luke Gulbranson
The news of Tayshia Adams and Luke Gulbranson dating is still relatively new, but it's a big freakin' deal, people! After all, these two are already celebs in their own right, with Tayshia being a literal Bachelorette and Luke being one of the most iconic Summer House alums in the show's history. And now, not only they romantically linked, but they're apparently casually out here looking at engagement rings. If you're asking yourself exactly how we got here, dw! We've got you covered on how the couple's entire 'ship started, plus all the intel there is to know about Luke aka the dude who captured our girl Tayshia's heart... and who may just get her metaphorical final rose 👀.
Tayshia's new boyfriend is seriously multi-faceted
Luke a model, and he’s also an actor with a number of credits to his name (he was even in an episode of The Flight Attendant!), a literal woodworker, a hockey coach, and an entrepreneur for his brand R_Co, which, according to the celeb, is "inspired by the mining town I grew up in, combined with the life I’ve lived in NYC."
TL;DR: He's a man of many talents.
Luke was on Summer House for three seasons
He joined the Bravo show during season 4 and stayed on through season 6. After his debut, he reminisced on the experience with Refinery29, saying, "We had a fun summer—it was a confusing summer, but it was a fun summer...We’ve all become really good friends."
After tons of ups and downs over the years, rumors began swirling that Luke and his co-stars, Andrea Denver and Alex Wach, would not be returning to Summer House for season 7. Amid the speculation, Luke hopped on an Instagram Live to clear the air and revealed, "To kind of address the elephant in the room...Just so everybody knows, I'm not going to be on Summer House this year. [Those] were rumors, but I wanted people to hear that from me. Yeah, I won't be on the show."
Luke further elaborated on the sitch during the Live, explaining, "I'm extremely thankful for the past three years of being on the show. I'm going to miss my friends a ton. [I'm] actually extremely bummed I'm not going to be able to spend the summer with them...It breaks my heart, but I know they'll have a good time and we'll be in touch anyway."
When a fan asked the reality TV star point-blank why he wouldn't be returning, Luke said he wouldn't "get into details," but he would have wanted to be on the upcoming season. "I will tell you that I would have loved to have been a part of it. I will miss my friends dearly this year, this summer. I can't answer the why."
He's dated a number of other celebs from the Bravosphere
Throughout his time on Summer House and its spinoff Winter House, Luke was in an on-and-off situationship with former co-star Hannah Berner and was briefly linked to Ciara Miller. More recently, he was in a three-month relationship with Real Housewives of Patomac star Ashley Darby. Ashley confirmed the news of their breakup this past January during an episode of Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen.
"Luke and I are not romantically involved anymore," the reality star said amid speculation the two had gone their separate ways after they deleted pics of each other off social media.
Ashley went on to explain the reason behind the split actually had a lot to do with her ongoing divorce from estranged husband Michael Darby. "It was my situation with Michael that affected Luke and I," said Ashley, adding that she and Michael "have a really hard time" with with co-parenting and separating. "Really, my life is very complicated. As you guys can imagine, I'm going through a very difficult situation."
That said, Ashley had nothing but good things to say about her ex Luke, gushing, "Luke was a trooper, believe me; he went through some things" and saying she "fell in love with" his entire family, whom she met during their time together.
He and Tayshia sparked romance rumors earlier this year
Both of the reality TV stars first sparked romance rumors after they were seen on multiple outings in New York City earlier this year. But what really sealed the deal re: all the speculation was actually when Luke's former costar Lindsay Hubbard posted (then deleted) a group pic on on Easter Sunday that showed the duo holding hands. Ahem, observe:
Oh, and here is Lindsay's re-uploaded version with Luke and Tayshia cropped out 👀:
Lindsay wound up speaking about the whole ordeal, dishing, "I did not know they were holding hands until everyone started commenting and was like, 'Oh, they’re holding hands!' And I was like, 'Oh sh*t, they’re holding hands!'...But I understand what it’s like to be in the public and the pressure that you feel from viewers and fans [and] everywhere."
Sources say it's serious!
At least, a source who spoke with Us Weekly did, saying, "It may seem like they’re moving fast, but they don’t care what other people think." According to the insider, Luke and Tayshia developed significant feelings for each other and not only are they "mad about each other," but they're "serious about their future." How serious, you ask? Well...
They've been ring shopping 👀
Earlier this month, the former Bachelorette and Summer House alum were spotted trying on rings (!!) during a trip to Tiffany & Co. in New York City. But wait, there's more! According to the publication, not only was the duo scoping out truly massive rocks, but Tayshia was seen staring at her left hand while trying one of them on *and* the two were consulting with a jeweler. An eyewitness even confirmed the couple was "100 percent looking at engagement rings." Mood:
Aaaaaand that's pretty much all we know for now, but based on how things are moving between Tayshia and Luke, you're gonna wanna check back here for more 🍵.
