Does Michelle Lally have a boyfriend? She says...

Per US Weekly, Michelle held a  Q&A session on her Instagram on April 20, where she teased a bit of insight into her current dating life. During the chat, one fan asked Michelle about her current love status, to which she responded by noting that she’s dating “someone amazing.”

Despite the luxury real estate agent confirming that she has a new boyfriend, she failed to unveil his identity, as she wrote on her Instagram Story, “I like our little privacy for the moment.”

Why did Michelle Lally and Jesse Lally break up? 

It turns out Michelle and Jesse have yet to reveal what was the breaking point in their marriage that fueled them to split. However, Jesse did share at The Valley premiere party in March that viewers will see their marriage struggles onscreen. 

“There’s a major storyline about our life where I try to work on myself throughout the entire summer to be the best version of myself,” he told US Weekly at the time. “And if the best version of myself aligned with the best version of herself, then our marriage would make it. People evolve. If your marriage and relationship doesn’t evolve with it, it will never work, no matter how bad you want it.”

Jesse also explained how preparing for the arrival of his and Michele's now 3-year-old daughter, Isabella Bunny Lally, during the pandemic added pressure to their relationship. 

“It was very hard to have your first kid during the pandemic…mid-lockdown, no nannies, no grandparents helping out,” he said. “It takes a toll on the couple in that situation.”

Did The Valley contribute to Michelle and Jesse's marriage troubles?

No. Instead, Michelle noted that The Valley actually helped her realize she and Jesse were drifting apart.

“People said, ‘When you watch the show, you’re going to realize how you guys actually are,’ because when you’re in it, you don’t actually know,” Michelle told Us Weekly. “Taking a step back and looking at myself, I’m like, ‘Oh, wow. It’s obvious we have some marital issues.’”
