Luke Gulbranson sparked dating rumors with ex-'Bachelorette' star Tayshia Adams.

During the Easter holiday, Lindsay Hubbard and her fiancé, Carl Radke, invited a few friends over. In a photo that was posted to Lindsay’s Snapchat, fans got a glimpse at the guest list.

Among the people spotted in the snap were Luke and Tayshia Adams (The Bachelorette), who were holding hands. Not to mention, Luke’s arm was around Tayshia’s waist.

Lindsay deleted the photo from Snapchat shortly after. However, the damage had already been done. Later, the Summer House star reposted the photo to Instagram — this time, with Luke and Tayshia cropped out.

At this time, the nature of their relationship is unclear. Luke and Tayshia have been tight-lipped about their could-be romance, but that hasn’t stopped fans from drawing their own conclusions.

After all, this isn’t the first time Luke’s love life has made headlines. Along with the infamous love triangle between Luke and his ex-Summer House co-stars Ciara Miller and Hannah Burner, he also dated another well-known reality star.

Luke Gulbranson previously dated Ashley Darby from ‘The Real Housewives of Potomac.’

After his drama with Hannah and Ciara, Summer House fans wondered which lucky lady would be on his arm next. While rumors swirled that Luke and Nicole Rosé could become an item after she DJ’d the Summer House Season 2 finale party in 2018. However, those rumors were quickly debunked when Nicole didn’t join the show in Season 3.

In October 2022, Luke found his match at none other than BravoCon. He connected with The Real Housewives of Potomac’s Ashley Darby during the network's star-studded event. As RHOP fans already know, Ashley recently separated from her husband, Michael Darby, after eight years of marriage and two children.

Although Ashley initially wanted to have a casual relationship with Luke, she confirmed to Page Six that Luke instantly felt she was “​​with somebody I was meant to be with.” In November 2022, the couple went Instagram official, and Ashley met Luke’s family in Minnesota, confirming they were more than a fling. By the time the holidays were over, Ashley had revealed that the lovebirds had decided to remain friends.

“Luke and I are not romantically involved anymore,” Ashley told Andy Cohen on Watch What Happens Live in January 2023.

The “Coffee and Love” singer added her breakup occurred because of her and Michael’s separation. She said Michael’s jealousy ultimately ended their relationship, though Luke was a “trooper” throughout their time together.

Despite her and Luke’s romance being up in the air for now, Ashley credited her new beau for supporting her through her and Michael’s separation. At the reunion, she said Luke offered her some “really wise words” about the exes’ dynamic.

After she shared that Michael came over to her house unannounced while she was with Luke, forcing him to leave, Ashley said Luke gave her some “really wise words,” which included advice for her “to reinforce stricter boundaries” with Michael. Ashley also confirmed Luke never met her and Michael’s boys — Dean and Dylan — out of respect for her ex.

Winter House airs new episodes at 8 p.m. EST on Bravo.
