Shaughna Phillips has confirmed she’s dating a mystery new man and is glad he wants to stay out of the public eye.
The reality personality, 27, rose to fame on the show’s winter series in 2020 and said it would be ‘weird’ if he wanted the attention she is getting, but admitted that he fits in perfectly at home with his two French bulldogs Biggie and Bunnie.
She told the So This Is Adulting podcast: “I’m dating someone who is also a surrogate dad to my fur babies.”

When asked if her new boyfriend was famous, Shaughna continued, “No, no, no…I was saying [to my dates]’I’d like to keep my relationship private, if that’s okay with you?’
“What if they were like, ‘oh no, why would you keep my secret?’ I’m like, red flag. But this guy was like, ‘I never want to be in the public eye anyway,’ and I was like, I like this answer.
“Since then we’ve been getting better and better, and I like that because anyone who accepts everyone knowing their every move, like me, is weird.”
