Who is Rachel Hollis dating now? Here’s what we know

Rachel Hollis is an American blogger and author who shot to fame in 2015 after a photo celebrating her stretch marks went viral. The success of her book Girl, Wash Your Face inspired Hollis to release a follow-up book titled Girl, Stop Apologizing. The book became a source of controversy as Hollis faced accusations of plagiarizing from Maja Jovanovic’s Hey Ladies, Stop Apologizing. 

Hollis was also accused of using quotes from Maya Angelou and Eleanor Roosevelt as her own. In 2021, Rachel drew the ire of the internet when she appeared to compare herself to, among others, Harriet Tubman. 

Rachel revealed that she is dating a mystery man she met on a dating app

Rachel Hollis is currently seeing a mystery man, she revealed via a 7th June episode of RachTalk. 

Hollis and the mystery man met via a dating app, where she’d created an account to find friends. Changing her profile to looking for friends attracted many people, including this man. Rachel explained:

“I changed everything in my profile in the app and said that I am just here for friends. That may have been a code that I didn’t understand was a code. There are other people who are there just for friends, including this person.”

Hollis and this man intended to be friends, but their relationship deepened. She realized that the person was ‘really attractive,’ which led the pair to their first kiss. However, Rachel’s first kiss with this man was rather embarrassing. 

In her panic, Rachel started talking as the couple kissed. She almost ruined the moment, but it ended well, as the couple is now ‘going steady.’ She said:

“It was so terrible you guys. It was so embarrassing. It was the worst. That was my second first kiss. He’s really cute and now we are going steady. Is that what the kids call it?”

Hollis and her ex-husband Dave Hollis separated in 2020 after 16 years of marriage

In mid-June 2020, Rachel announced her separation from ex-husband Dave Hollis after 16 years of marriage. The Instagram announcement stated that the pair had tried to work on their issues for three years without success. Therefore, they decided to go separate ways. Rachel wrote:

“We remain dear friends as we raise our family as co-parents and run our company as partners. We are choosing joy – even though, I’ll be honest, the last month has been one of the most awful of our lives. I want to be strong and bold and optimistic for you now, but every ounce of my energy is reserved in being those things for my children.”

She also requested privacy as the couple dealt with the separation. “Our marriage has been a triumph in so many ways,” Dave wrote on Instagram. The couple welcomed four children – Sawyer, Noah, Ford, and Jackson – during 16 years of marriage. 

“Rae and I decided that the best way to allow each of those [family and business] to thrive is to end our marriage while the option for a beautiful, unconventional new family, friendship and partnership still exists as a real and hope-filled option,” Dave added.
