Even though she’s no longer with his best friend Matt James adorabel remains invested in Hannah BrownLove life.

The current star of The Bachelor was a guest on the Almost Famous podcast on Thursday, February 4th, where he told the hosts Ashley Iaconetti and Jared Haibon that he checked with Hannah for advice on how to star on the show. He added that he more than approves of the former Bachelorette’s new boyfriend model Adam Woolard.

“Hannah is my girl,” said Matt. “I speak to Hannah regularly. I actually met her new boyfriend who is amazing.”

Matt didn’t mention Adam by name, but Hannah and her new husband raised their eyebrows for the first time when they were seen together several times last month. One such excursion included a hand-in-hand stroll in Los Angeles on January 23rd.

“He’s great and she’s happy and she deserves to be happy,” continued Matt. “And the questions I asked her were exactly what to expect, how did you know when you were feeling something, and she was just a soundboard. It meant so much to have someone like this going through it again I’ve gone through the highest highs and the lowest lows of what can lead to my being out there. It made me better equipped for what I had to face. “
