Rachel Bradshaw's New Boyfriend Is a Literal Mystery to All of Us
Terry Bradshaw’s family on The Bradshaw Bunch is slated to become the next Kardashian-esque reality TV family of your dreams. Fame? Check. Money? Check. Family members who are far too involved in each other’s personal lives? Double-check. That last one could be the bane of Rachel Bradshaw and her boyfriend’s relationship since no one knows anything about him ... but they probably will soon.
It's hard enough to keep secrets from your own family. Add cameras and an audience hungry for all the latest romantic gossip, and it's a pretty safe bet Rachel won't be able to keep details of her new romance away from the public forever.
Rachel and Dustin ended their relationship in 2019.
On the show for a while, Rachel’s boyfriend was Dustin Hughes, a guy her family couldn't seem to get on board with. Her sister and dad were both concerned he might be in it for the Bradshaw name rather than having genuine feelings for her.
Their relationship didn't last long. In 2019, the two parted ways, and since then many have come to the conclusion that this was probably for the best. Dustin is having a child with another woman, and it's possible he had already started seeing her while he and Rachel were still together.
So, who is Rachel Bradshaw's boyfriend now?
Normally, answers to questions like these are fairly straightforward. Many stars can't wait to spill the tea about their new relationships, even if they keep some specifics to themselves. It seems Rachel has moved on from Dustin and has found someone else.
Rachel isn't letting anyone in on the secret, though. She told E! "It's not on the show or anything. This happened after we wrapped. But eventually, I'll become more open about that."
So even though we don't know who Rachel's mystery man is, at least she seems happy with someone new.
What happened to Rachel Bradshaw's husband?
Long before Rachel and her boyfriend on the show were even a thing, she was married to NFL placekicker Rob Bironas. They hadn’t been married long when he died in a fatal car accident. On Sept. 20, 2014, he lost control of his car and flipped multiple times before landing in a ditch on the side of the road. The official cause of death was blunt force trauma and a toxicology report stated that Rob had a blood alcohol level of 0.218 percent, which was over the legal limit.
Rachel's job as a country music artist keeps her busy outside of relationships.
Although Rachel suffered a tremendous loss when her husband died, she was able to eventually move on. But if she isn't dating Dustin anymore, whether it be from her family’s interference or because it just didn't work out, she might be too busy for relationships anyway. Instead of following in her dad’s footsteps with sports, Rachel sought out a career in country music.
And it seems she has been able to build a name for herself in that arena. After moving to Nashville to pursue a music career as a singer and songwriter, Rachel co-wrote the certified gold single "What Do You Want" with Jerrod Niemann and even performed on The Tonight Show. She’s also working on six original songs to release as singles.
"The collection of music that I wrote embodies a whimsical blend of some of my favorite songs and artists that I have always been inspired by," Rachel said on her website. "I write about love, and I write about tragedy. It all blends together to become a storyline that reflects my journey in life, to get to where I am now."
