Here's What Bachelor In Paradise's Jenna Cooper Is Doing Now

Jenna Cooper of The Bachelor and Bachelor in Paradise hasn't had an easy time in the spotlight. After getting eliminated from Arie Luyendyk Jr.'s season in 2018, the reality star popped up on Season 5 of Bachelor in Paradise later that year and fell madly in love with Jordan Kimball. Despite getting engaged during the finale episode, the couple called things off after reports started to emerge alleging that Jenna had been cheating. At the time of the allegations, Jenna made a statement to People, saying, "I am aware of the allegations being made against me and they are simply untrue. I am choosing to focus on my relationship right now. Thank you for respecting my privacy at this time." However, Jenna and Jordan never reconciled.

Less than six months later, Jenna found happiness with current partner Karl Hudson IV. Introducing him to her followers on Instagram in January 2020, she wrote, "Soo this is Karl. I met him a year ago, and now I can't imagine life without him. He has shown me what it's like to be with a real man. With real morals. And with an unselfish and loving heart, and I'm never going back."

"Dear Baby, I hope you know that I already love you more than I could have imagined possible," she shared, adding that she'd fully support her child to go after all of her goals in life. She continued, "I hope you get my spirit and sense of humor, and never stop laughing. I hope you get your daddy's thoughtfulness and work ethic, and never stop being curious." 

Speaking to The News & Observer, Jenna revealed that their baby is due in May. Noting that she sees her relationship with Karl lasting forever, she told the publication that she's looking forward to their future with their daughter.
