It feels like a lifetime ago that former Bachelor Richie Strahan picked single mother Alex Nation to be his girlfriend back on The Bachelor in 2016.
Since then, the pair have well and truly broken up, and Richie has found love with his new girlfriend, stunning brunette Jenayah Thompson.
Richie and Jenayah have kept their relationship very private since making their romance Instagram official back in October last year.
At the time, Richie confirmed his new relationship status by sharing a cute snap of himself and Jenayah in Bali at a wedding.
"I think she is secretly plotting to kill me! 💕," he captioned the photo, featuring Jenayah gazing adorably at her man.
Since then, Richie has refrained from sharing any more pictures of his girlfriend on social media - until now.

The rope technician has just shared a second photo of his gorgeous lady - and unveiled his new post-iso hairdo!
On Thursday night, Richie uploaded a cute couple pic of himself and Jenayah, revealing his new shaved head.
"I hope everyone is staying safe! I'm enjoying being home from work and spending time with this babe😊❤️," Richie captioned the photo.
While we don't know too much about Jenayah - her Instagram account is sadly still on private - her Instagram bio tells us she is 28 years old, a "state manager" and "disability advocate", who is also "here for the memes".

After coming in third during Sam Frost's season of The Bachelorette, Richie became the 2016 Bachelor and found love with winner Alex Nation.
The couple called it quits in 2017, but were thrown back together when they both starred on the second season of Bachelor in Paradise in 2019.
After Richie and Alex split, she began a relationship with her female AFL teammate Maegan Luxa. The pair later celebrated their engagement in December 2017, but broke up shortly afterwards.

Speaking about his breakup with Alex in New Idea, Richie described their split as "heartbreaking".
"The months leading up to it were the most difficult, crazy and confusing time I've been put through. Having something dissolve the way it did was heartbreaking, but at the same time, there was a lot of relief that the emotional rollercoaster was finally over," he said.
"I guess the brightest spark can fizzle fast. We made some bad choices back in June and our relationship really struggled to recover for months after that. It didn't matter how much effort I put into it — sometimes these things are destined to fail."

But shortly after their relationship ended, Alex had only nice things to say about her former boyfriend.
"Richie is a great person, he'll still get his ever after," she wrote on Instagram.
"We both hoped for things to work, but life just is. Sometimes things in life simply don't work out for us. You cherish the nice memories and you move forward."
