We knew Bethenny Frankel had a new special someone in her life from all of the lovely photos she's been posting of herself with her mystery man on Instagram, as well as all of the gushing she's done about him on The Real Housewives of New York City this season. However, we didn't know just how special this guy was until we got to hear about the man from Bethenny herself during the Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen After Show on Wednesday night, which you can view, above.
And it sounds like things are going very well between these two lovebirds. "He's incredible," Bethenny shared. "He's a beautiful human being, inside and out."
Bethenny revealed that her boyfriend has even met her daughter, Bryn, who will be turning 9 years old next month — and the reviews are positive. "And yes, Bryn knows him, loves him," Bethenny said. "They're very, very similar people."
Bethenny first confirmed her new relationship in December when she revealed that he "saved [her] life" when she experienced a near-fatal allergic reaction. She then made things Instagram official with her new beau with a photo showing them on vacation in the Dominican Republic. Bethenny has continued to give fans a glimpse at her romance, from the couple's Valentine's Day celebration to his grand gesture after she sealed a major business deal.
Bethenny and her new boyfriend began dating after the passing of her fiancé, Dennis Shields, last August. She has opened up about grieving this monumental loss, including how she's been helping her daughter through it, this season of RHONY.
"I loved him so much and we were family and my daughter was so close to him and I knew him for so many years," Bethenny said of Dennis while speaking to Dorinda Medley about their secret engagement on RHONY.
