Vanessa Grimaldi is moving on with her life.

The reality star, who got engaged to Nick Viall on Season 21 of The Bachelor, might have a new man after her engagement to the reality star ended just a few months ago.

And, not only is this new man younger than her, he’s a hockey player!

The 30-year-old has been spending time with 25-year-old Brendan Gallagher.

In fact, the athlete plays for the Montreal Canadiens, which is her hometown team. 

"They were having brunch in the Old Port [of Montreal]. They seemed really sweet together," a source told Entertainment Tonight.

"There was a lot of laughing and playful gestures."

The former Bachelor Nation star’s rep also confirmed the new romance.

"They’ve been talking and hanging out together. They’re cute. It’s all relatively new.”

The brunette beauty and the two-time Bachelorette runner-up decided to part ways in August.

"It's with a great amount of heartbreak for the both us as we have decided to end our engagement," they said in a joint statement at the time.

"We gave this relationship our all and we are saddened that we did not get the fairytale ending we hoped for. We will continue to be there for each other no matter what.”

They continued, “This hasn't been an easy decision, however, as we part ways, we do so with lots of love and admiration for each other."

Following the split, Vanessa returned to her hometown and spent a lot of time with her family.

"She's been laying low watching movies at home and indulging in her grandmother's comfort food," a source said.  

"She's still in contact with Nick, so that makes things easier. They're still close."
