It's been nearly one year since Jill Zarin said goodbye to husband Bobby Zarin when he passed away after a battle with cancer on January 13, 2018. Now The Real Housewives of New York City alum is ready to introduce the world to the new man in her life.
Jill made her relationship with boyfriend Gary Brody Instagram official on Thursday, December 27 when she posted a photo of herself smiling with the entrepreneur on a tennis court in Boca Raton, Florida. "Trivia question[:] 'What is the origin of the term Love in Tennis?'" Jill wrote in a cheeky caption to the pic.
Tennis holds a very special place in both Jill and Gary's hearts. They initially bonded over playing tennis as friends, and they were later spotted attending major tennis events together earlier this year, including Wimbledon and the U.S. Open. Clearly, tennis (and table tennis) is still the cornerstone of this relationship.
In fact, Bobby told Jill prior to his passing that he hoped she would meet a special someone on the court when he was gone. "He told me what he wanted for me. It was very sad... But he wants me to move on, he wants me to be happy," Jill told The Daily Dish earlier this year. "He wants me to work. He wants me to play tennis. He knows I love it and he knows that that's probably a good place for me to meet a nice guy and he doesn't want me to be alone. He's not selfish like that."
Gary gets two paws up from Jill's beloved Pomeranian, Miss Bossi, too.
