Happy Fourth! :flag_us: :flag_us: Freedom isn't free. I'm thankful to be able to follow my heart and choose my own happiness. I hope you all do the same! For those who have asked, this is why I would do it all over again :sunny: :rainbow: Can't wait to share some of our adventures.. #followyourheart #happyfourth #244
"I'm thankful to be able to follow my heart and choose my own happiness," she wrote, introducing her followers to her new boyf.
"I hope you all do the same! For those who have asked, this is why I would do it all over again. Can't wait to share some of our adventures."
She posted two snaps of her and her new beau, Ben, to mark the 4th July celebrations. The first was a close up of the pair looking cosy, while the second showed them having fun on what appears to be a yacht.
According to his Insta bio, Ben is a foot and ankle surgeon and a dad of two. Jessica, 35, also shared how the pair met, by posting an Instagram story of them on a bike ride.
"Favourite thing to do together. Also it's how we met!" Jess wrote.
And fans were quick to congratulate Jessica, but one had a very important question. "Is he 24 or 34?" They wrote.
Much to viewers' amusement, Jess replied: "He was 34 at the time of filming so it turns out that's exactly what I was looking for. Thanks for asking!"
Love is Blind fans will remember how, while engaged to Mark Cuevas on the Netflix reality show, Jessica struggled with their 10-year age gap. While she was 34 during filming, Mark was 24.
Although the pair tried to make it work, ultimately, Jessica ended up dumping Mark at the altar.

Just last week, Jessica claimed Mark had cheated on her during filming. While it always seemed Mark was completely smitten, Jess' claims appear to indicate otherwise.
It all came about when, earlier this week, Mark was accused of cheating on a different Love Is Blind co-star - Lauren Chamberlain - who he had been dating since the beginning of May.
It's reported that images of him with another woman were shared on Reddit. Deciding to weigh in on the juicy drama on Instagram and dishing some goss' herself, Jessica responded to a fan's comment.
On an Instagram post about Lauren's claims, one fan speculated: "Mark was sleeping with MULTIPLE women at the studio he trained at DURING the show."
And Jessica weighed in on the comments, adding: "Wow. News to me, I only know about one." Tyla reached out to Mark's reps at the time for comment.
