Former Bachelorette Britt Nilsson took to Instagram Friday to pen a lengthy message about her split from show suitor-turned-boyfriend Brady Toops.
"Yes, it is true--@bradytoops and I are no longer together," Nilsson wrote on a picture of the pair, adding that they split "a few months ago" after two months of dating. "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 was one of two potential bachelorettes at the start of the show’s most recent season. When the suitors selected Kaitlyn Bristoweas the one they would compete for, Toops left the reality dating show to pursue a relationship with Nilsson.
"I couldn't be more blessed by who he is as a person -- I will forever respect and adore him," Britt said of Brady. "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."
Nilsson also thanked Bachelorette fans for being "so kind and caring" as the couple’s journey progressed.
"We love you guys, and appreciate your investment in our relationship," she wrote. "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."
Nilsson called the couple's two months together a "beautiful, honest, and valuable" relationship that "made us both stronger."
"He is an incredible man of faith who gives great advice, loves God and people well, and blesses everyone around him just by being himself," she concluded. "I truly can't wait to see all the great things in store for him! I will ALWAYS be #teambrady! So, thank you for your support and encouragement, continued prayers, and mostly for respecting our private decisions and the (finally) public outcome! LOVE YOU GUYS!"
