Cafe owner Pete also took to social media to confirm they had parted ways.
"The Bachelorette was such an amazing experience and one I'll always remember. I came on this show to follow my heart and find love but unfortunately in the end true love was not meant to be," he said.
"Becky is a wonderful woman and I wish her nothing but happiness in life and love. It is truly what she deserves."
"I also want to take this opportunity to wish @ellymiles and @fneate_3 all the best with their romance. Two great humans who are perfect for one another," the 34-year-old concluded.

Just hours earlier, the couple's fairy tale ending played out on our screens after Becky picked Pete over runner-up Adrian Baena.
Believing he was "husband material", Becky told him: "It's you, Pete."
However in the weeks leading up to the finale, telltale sings Becky's romance may not have worked out were starting to appear.
Becky gave an awkward answer when hosts Laura Byrne and Brittany Hockley asked if she'd found love on their Life Uncut podcast.
"I wouldn't say love! But I'm definitely in a happy place, so... I feel like the road to love is a bit of a journey right? And I just want that time on the outside to just get to know my person, and have fun and just do real life," she said.
In a chat with Who, Becky didn't mention her man and instead turned the focus to Elly's budding romance, remarking that she's "never seen Elly so smitten."
Becky and Pete's break-up caps off a lacklustre season of The Bachelorette franchise with ratings plummeting to a record low after fans panned the Miles sisters' double act.
