Clare Crawley's lips aren't sealed when it comes to her new man.

On Tuesday, the former Bachelorette took to her Instagram Stories to film her favorite things to do in cold weather (including cooking up with a bowl of chili).

Yet, she captioned the video with a PSA on the appearance of her lips. "Also, no I didn't get my lips done, it's the consequence of having sensitive skin + a hot man with a beard," she wrote, revealing that kisses with her new bearded beau Ryan Dawkins were the culprit of plump lips.

A few Stories after she shared a close-up selfie joking that she had "battle wounds" from kissing her boyfriend.

Crawley's new romance comes one year after her second split from now-ex Dale Moss, 33, a source telling PEOPLE last September that the breakup was "mutual."

The two met in 2020 while filming season 16 of The Bachelorette, in which Crawley was one of leading ladies. Despite leaving the series as an engaged couple just two weeks in, the pair first called it quits in January 2021.

"I wanted share with you all that Clare and I have decided to go our separate ways. We appreciate the love and support we've received from so many people, but this is the healthiest decision for both of us at this time," Moss wrote in an Instagram statement at time, adding that they "only hope the best things for one another."

Crawley shared her own thoughts on Instagram revealing that she was "crushed."

"This was not what I expected or hoped for and am still trying to process this. 2020 was one hell of a year, with COVID, battling severe anxiety post-show, balancing a public new relationship, all while slowly losing my mother. It hasn't been ideal circumstances, but that is life right. I have been looking forward to the light at the end of the tunnel," she wrote.
