Small world! Right after we wrote a happy birthday note to new Bachelorette Emily Maynard, we saw that February 1 is also the birthday of Em’s Bachelor 15 buddy Jackie Gordon.

Miss Jackie turns 29 today and she doesn’t need to be The Bachelorette to find love — she’s doing just fine on her own. After not quite finding romance with Brad Womack, she found love-ish-ness with Ames Brown on Bachelor Pad 2 and then found real love in the real world with Bachelorette 6’s Craig Robinson.

Here’s to a new year of much love, much art and much happiness for Jackie G!
