Former ‘Bachelorette’ Gabby Windey shares she is dating a woman

Former “Bachelorette” Gabby Windey has a new relationship.

Windey, who co-starred in season 19 of the ABC dating show alongside Rachel Recchia, announced Aug. 2 on Instagram that she is dating writer and comedian Robby Hoffman.

The Colorado-based ICU nurse posted a carousel of photos showing the two women kissing and hugging.

“Told you I’m a girls girl!!” she cheekily captioned it.

Several Bachelor Nation stars, including Windey’s former co-star Recchia, congratulated Windey for finding love.

“Love you with my entire heart and soul,” Recchia commented, adding several heart emoji.

“Needed this love story!!” wrote former “Bachelorette” Kaitlyn Bristowe. Former “Bachelor” Ben Higgins added, “Well son of a biscuit this is real beautiful. Congrats gabby.”

Windey’s coming-out post came shortly after she revealed Aug. 2 on “The View” that she was “dating a girl.”

The former Denver Broncos cheerleader shared more details about her and Hoffman’s budding romance in a selfie video posted to her Instagram story.

“You know I love to stir the pot and tease, but I did want to wait until I was ready because it is a larger conversation because I’m dating a girl,” she said excitedly.

“It’s been honestly, truly, really the best experience over these last three months. I’ve been in a relationship like I feel like I’ve never had before,” she continued.

She added, “I wanted to tell you guys because I always just want to live my life honestly and have you all along with me.”

Windey then shared a photo of herself and Hoffman kissing while embracing in a chair.

Hoffman, who already publicly identified as queer, re-shared the photo to her own Instagram story and jokingly wrote on it, “Guys some news … I am gay.”

While speaking to the Jewish Journal in 2020, Hoffman, whose mother raised her in a strict Hasidic Jewish home, revealed that she felt alienated at her Jewish school as a young person because she was gay.

Though she walked away from Judaism, she said at the time that she identifies as “very Jewish and very gay” and incorporates her religious upbringing in her standup routines.

Hoffman is a writer and comedian who is developing a comedy called “Rivkah,” inspired by her own life, for Showtime, according to a 2021 report from Deadline.

She wrote for the PBS children’s show “Odd Squad,” for which she won a Daytime Emmy Award in 2019.
