RACHEL REINERT, the cute brunette in GLORIANA, is now officially dating BOBBY BONES.

It didn’t seem like either of them were quite ready to go public with it . . . but the people at Taste of Country were persistent and finally came right out and asked them on Twitter.

Bobby tried to dodge the question at first by saying, “You’ll have to ask her. My mouth gets me in trouble.” But then he replied, “I just talked to Rachel. Her official statement is, ‘Yes, we are dating.’ That’s all she told me at this time.”

And then Rachel confirmed it with, ”Yep! He’s pretty great.”

(In light of this news, it’s interesting to go back and look at a video from last year when Rachel was a guest host on Bobby’s show. Is it just me, or can you feel the chemistry between them all the way back then?)
