Bethenny Frankel is feeling the "love".
The ‘Real Housewives of New York’ star started dating film producer Paul Bernon two months after the tragic death of her on-off boyfriend Dennis Shields last year, and she recently took to Instagram to reveal she had been sent red roses in a heart shape from a secret admirer ahead of Valentine’s Day (14.02.19).
She captioned the snap of the floral gift: "Love is in the air #luckylady (sic)"
Meanwhile, things seem to be hotting up for the couple after they spent New Year’s Eve together in Mexico.
The reality star enjoyed a romantic getaway with Paul and his kids and her eight-year-old daughter Bryn in Playa del Carmen to ring in 2019.
A source said: "She seemed to be very happy, hanging out with her boyfriend and some friends. The kids were always out and about running around having fun, while Bethenny spent a lot of time hanging out on the beach, talking a lot and holding court with her group. She used the outdoor jacuzzi, spa steam room, and at one point, she and her boyfriend went for a walk and held hands. They seemed happy."
Bethenny had a tough 2018 after the passing of Dennis and admitted she found it "hard to breathe" following his death.
She wrote on Twitter at the time: "It’s hard to breathe & I appreciate you giving me the space & support to try to do so. It’s excruciating-sudden death is no closure & constant ?s & memories. Our relationship is current so it’s painfully raw. Trying to stay healthy & move through it w tears & close friends. Xo (sic)"
A source added: "She is devastated. She loved him. He was her family and [her eight-year-old daughter] Bryn’s family. Bryn loved him. Dennis was Bethenny’s partner, her family, her business partner and her best friend. He helped her with things – emotionally and professionally, and he was her confidante. No question that she did love this guy."
