Chris Harrison celebrated his anniversary with girlfriend, Lauren Zima, by sharing several photos to his Instagram account on Saturday.
The 50-year-old reality television personality was seen spending time with his partner in numerous locations and wrote a lengthy message to make his feelings about her known to his followers.
The show host’s post marks the first time that he has shared anything to his Instagram account ever since he was ousted from Bachelor Nation earlier this year.

The host told Zima that he was grateful for ‘your wisdom, strength, vulnerability, theatrics, compassion, advice, laughter, grace…your love.’

Prior to becoming involved with the Entertainment Tonight reporter, Harrison was married to his former wife, Gwen.
The two initially met in college and tied the knot in 1994 before welcoming sons Joshua and Taylor into their lives.
However, the former pair announced that they would be splitting up after nearly two decades of marriage, and they dissolved their union in 2012.
Harrison and Zima kept the news about their relationship under wraps for much of 2018 until they appeared at a red carpet event the following year, which served as a confirmation of their romance.

The two have made several appearances both in public and on their respective social media outlets as a couple ever since then.
The former Bachelor host has remained largely absent from Instagram ever since leaving the show in the wake of public controversy.
During the 25th season of the hit show, it was discovered that Rachael Kirkconnell, one of the show’s contestants, had previously participated in an Antebellum South-themed event while in college.
Following the revelations regarding the reality television figure, Harrison was asked about his view of the situation and provided a response that many viewed as being defensive about her actions.

He later announced that he would be stepping back from the franchise and was replaced by various other hosts.
