MICHELLE Young and her season winner Nayte Olukoya have assured fans that they will spend their lives together despite doubts from family and friends.
The Bachelorette star picked the Account Executive over contestant Brandon Jones during the tearful Tuesday finale.
The season lead told viewers: “We’re still kind of on an emotional high and excited and everything but this has been crazy.”
“I never thought I’d be in a situation where I’d be in love with two different people but this position that you put yourself in, that’s something that’s very likely to happen.
“With Nate, he’s the person I could not imagine living without, and the way we connected on so many different levels, it’s where my heart was guiding me and I definitely made the right choice,” she explained.
After admitting that he had “never been in love” before their on-screen match, Nayte told fans: “I feel very lucky that the first person I fell in love with is going to be the person I spend the rest of my life with.”
HAPPILY EVER AFTER?
While the pair are “still together and happy,” a source exclusively told The Sun her friends believe it is an “act” and even her family “doesn’t believe it will last.”
“They have an undeniable connection, no one is questioning that,” the insider said of the winner.
“But it’s like they’re in a constant honeymoon phase they can’t really get out of. Their relationship doesn’t really seem like an adult relationship.
“They’re like two teenagers running around thinking this is the one but his family is very concerned,” they explained.
“It’s nothing against Michelle, they think she’s great but they don’t think Nayte is ready for marriage, not by a longshot.
“On top of that, they think this whole reality TV thing is ridiculous,” they added.
While the insider admitted that Michelle’s parents trust her, they claimed that her family has also “had doubts” and “expressed their own concern.”
“Their close circle is trying to stay positive but they don’t see this continuing once they finally wake up from this dream.
“Michelle is a lot more mature than Nayte and that’s led to some issues already but it will most likely lead to much bigger issues in the future,” the informant confessed.
“They see red flags that Michelle refuses to see and she most likely won’t ever see it until they break up.”
Despite the alleged hardships, The Bachelorette star has been telling everyone she’s “so happy” with Nayte.
“Short term, they seem great but the long term is what everyone is concerned about,” the source concluded.
BACK TO BRANDON
Runner-up 布兰登, 26, won the hearts of America throughout season 18, and after he was savagely dumped by Michelle on Tuesday’s episode, fans jumped to the rescue.
Many claimed that they slid right into the Portland native’s DMs as they decided to give their own love with the reality star a shot.
