'Bachelor' star Vanessa Grimaldi has a new boyfriend after calling off engagement to Nick Viall

Looks like Vanessa Grimaldi is giving love another chance.

Eight months after calling off her engagement to Nick Viall, the former Bachelor star is dating again.

"I always wanted to find someone … who’s gonna be a great father, someone who's gonna be a great husband, someone who's family-oriented," the 30-year-old reality star told Bachelor Winter Games alum Dean Unglert on his podcast, Help! I Suck at Dating, according to People. "I wanted all those things, but the people that I was dating either had some of it but they didn't have all of it."

"I don't care if you have a million followers," she continued. "I don't care. I'd rather you not have Instagram. I'd rather you not know I was ever on the show."

Although she didn't reveal the name of her new beau, Grimaldi confirmed he is not involved with the "Bachelor world" in any way. They actually met through a mutual friend!

"I don't know where this is going to lead, but I do know I appreciate all his qualities," she gushed. "I feel like I'm a much better person when I'm with him. I'm just very lighthearted, and I'm focused on the right things and I'm not distracted by the fake world that we could be a part of."

Though Grimaldi and Viall ended their engagement last August, they have remained on good terms and continue to support each other. Grimaldi opened up about the split while chatting with ET in December 2017.

"The breakup wasn't easy, but it was important for me still to have a good relationship with him after we broke up," she explained. "That was an important thing for the both of us and we both very much support each other."

"[We talk] every once in a while," she added. "I have a lot of respect for Nick."
