In 2017, Vanessa received the final rose from Nick Viall on The Bachelor, and the couple got engaged during the finale.
However, they only broke up five months later. “We just realized we were different people fighting to keep a relationship when in the end we just weren’t the best match for each other,” she told People at the time.
But luckily, it seems that Nick has nothing but good wishes for his ex and her new fiancé.
“Well thank goodness I followed you a week ago to hear this news,” Viall, 39, wrote in a response to Grimaldi’s Instagram post about her engagement. ‘Congratulations to you two! Lucky one. ️’

“Who knew my person lived in the same town as me all these years!” she added.
Ever sir, Wolfe even helped design Grimaldi’s stunning 1-carat diamond and 18K yellow gold engagement ring, with the help of local Montreal jeweler Teresa and Sons.

“I knew Vanessa was the one after the first Sunday lunch I had with her family in Saint Leonard,” he exclaimed. “That’s when I realized how important family was to her, as it was to me. I felt so welcomed and just grateful at the thought that they could one day become my extended family. I felt like I was at home.
‘Also the first time she made me her pasta sauce. It’s something else!’ he added dizzy.
