The Valley mom addressed the topic in a recent Q&A session featuring her new boyfriend, Aaron Nosler — a financial advisor she met amid her marital split from Jesse Lally. While many questions focused on Michelle and Jesse’s estranged relationship, there was one inquiry that kept popping up throughout the stream: How did Michelle and Aaron meet?

How Michelle Lally's daughter connected her with Aaron Nosler

Well, according to the Los Angeles real estate agent, it was a “funny story” involving her and Jesse’s young daughter. She told viewers it all started when she went to a local coffee shop, where — unbeknownst to her — Isabella began waving at then-stranger Aaron. 

“And so they had a little interaction from far away and I didn’t see it,” Michelle recalled. “And then I got my coffee and then left, and Aaron and I actually didn’t speak. And then it must’ve been maybe a couple of days or a week later, he saw us again and then it was kind of the same thing. So, Isabella was actually the introduction and it was just very natural.”

Aaron Nosler on meeting Michelle Lally: "It's probably the cutest love story"

Aaron had a similar recollection.

“It’s probably the cutest love story of all time,” he said on Instagram Live. “I mean, Isabella was waving to me, which, knowing Isabella, is rare to see her just randomly pick somebody across the room and just start waving. And then when I left, I said goodbye to Isabella but I also said goodbye to you (Michelle). I actually thought about you on my walk home. Three days later, we saw each other again and you were not with Isabella.”

Aaron said he decided to approach Michelle in the coffee shop and initiated a conversation. The Valley cast member said they would also “randomly run into each other” at the Runyon Canyon hiking trail, which was near both of their homes. 

“A couple of months after I split [with Jesse], he had asked me how everything was going and I said, ‘Well, interesting story...’" Michelle continued, "and I kind of told him what was going on in my life."

The mother of one said Aaron was also newly single at the time and flatly asked her, “Hey, do you want to go out on a date?”

“So it was just very organic and refreshing to meet somebody this way,” Michelle said. “And it’s been amazing ever since.”

Michelle Lally addresses rumored romance with a Hollywood director

Michelle announced her and Aaron’s relationship back in April after she was romantically tied to an unnamed Hollywood director. Michelle shut down those rumors in an exclusive interview with The Daily Dish, insisting she had met with the mystery filmmaker for work-related matters.

“There were a lot of actors and actresses and directors, and just wealthy individuals that I meet on a constant basis. And I think that was very twisted in a lot of ways,” she said before declining to reveal the director’s identity. “It’s work, so I want to keep that private.”

Michelle also confirmed Aaron has already met Jesse, as well as her some of her castmates, including Jason and Janet Caperna, and Brittany Cartwright. Aaron said he’s been watching The Valley Season 1 alongside Michelle, and joked it was the “best reality show [he] could ask for.”

“Seeing my girlfriend’s marriage untangle is incredible. It’s my favorite reality show,” he said with a laugh before gushing over his and Michelle’s romance. “This has been the best relationship I’ve ever been in. We are so comfortable and we just don’t get sick of each other. And we’ll bring that up. We’re like, ‘I can’t believe we’re together every day and we still want to see each other every day.’”

“In fact, I want to see you more,” Michelle added.
