Michelle Young has a new love!

After her romance with former fiancé Nayte Olukoya didn't work out following her stint as the Bachelorette season 18 lead, the 30-year-old made things Instagram-official with her new boyfriend, Jack Leius.

On Oct. 27, the Bachelor Nation made a social media post featuring two professionally-snapped photos of the couple. In the first one, Young held on to her flame's chest as he nuzzled her face. The other picture featured the pair gazing into each other's eyes lovingly, with big smiles.

Young captioned the snaps, "Hit the Jackpot with you."

In the comments, fellow Bachelorette alums celebrated the new romance.

"Oh yesss MAM! So happy for you! 😍," wrote former Bachelorette Charity Lawson.

Season 19 co-Bachelorette Rachel Recchia reacted to the reveal by commenting, "HARD LAUNCH."

Kaitlyn Bristowe, who was the Bachelorette on the 11th season, expressed her approval with emojis: "😍😍😍😍😍😍."

Teen Wolf alum Meagan Tandy also appeared in the comments, gushing, "What a great damn looking couple 🔥😍❤️wow!"

Last year, Olukoya went on Bachelor Nation personality Nick Viall's podcast, The Viall Files, where he explained why things didn't work out between him and Young.

"It started off so great and then somewhere we just stopped clicking. The communication broke down. I think the world of Michelle, obviously. She's phenomenal," he said.

Olukoya continued, "It was like, 'Wait, what's going on right now?' I fell in love with this woman. I'm not saying that she changed into this terrible person, it just wasn't the same super quick. Really quickly after everything was said and done, after the engagement, after we started going into the everyday motion of lives... things just started to shift."
