Bartise Bowden was the talk of yet another “Love Is Blind” reunion, but this time for a good reason. During the Season 4 finale, he made a surprise appearance via video to reveal his 4-month-old son’s name – Hayden. Bowden also shared that his son is a “massive fan” of the show and that he will not be watching his father’s season.
The former reality TV star announced the arrival of his little one earlier this month on Instagram. He captioned a carousel of snaps with his baby boy, “Might’ve been the villain on tv, but I’m gonna be the hero for him. Instagram, meet my little man #bigfella.” In a video posted to his Instagram Story, he added, “We went from ‘Zaddy’ on screen to daddy in real life.”
Bowden shares Hayden with Olivia Gross, a 25-year-old living in Texas. Little is known about Gross aside from her name and the fact that she lives in Texas. It’s also unclear whether or not Bowden and Gross are still together or what their custody agreement looks like.
Many fans were confused about the timeline of events, as Bowden appeared on two Netflix shows back to back around the time his son would have been conceived. On “LIB,” which aired in October 2022, the senior analyst left the pods engaged to Nancy Rodriguez but abruptly ended things at the altar after admitting he wasn’t physically attracted to her. Soon after, he went on the “Perfect Match,” which premiered in February, only to once again leave without a lasting love.
