Despite several rumours claiming that reality star Carly Waddell and her ex-boyfriend Kirk DeWindt have reunited, it appears they are untrue. According to the latest news, Carly is dating again, but is in a relationship with Erik DiNardo, a singer/songwriter from Nashville, Tennessee.

Although their relationship seems to be only a few months old, the singer from popular reality show, "Bachelor in Paradise" dropped several hints that she has found love again. In September 2015, Carly posted a snapchat video and said, "I'm sort of dating this guy, and we're in the Bridgestone Arena, and we're the only people here." A few months later, she posted an adorable picture of her and Erik on Instagram and captioned it, "Smiling is my favourite."

In fact, Carly, 29, told US Weekly, "He is the best human. I love Nashville! It's the first place I have ever lived that feels like home!"

Carly and her ex Kirk DeWindt split during the filming of "Bachelor in Paradise" season 2. Since then, she has opened up about their break up and said that the split was due to Kirk's unresolved feelings for his ex back home. 

While fans of the star would be happy to know that Carly has indeed sought love in her life, many wonder who Erik DiNardo is.

On his website, Erik's bio reads: "The funk of Mraz, the energy of The Goo Goo Dolls, and the eloquence of Mayer is what many describe as the music of Erik DiNardo."

Born in Boston, Erik's musical career began with an interest in guitars. His website states that the singer/songwriter paid his friend with whiskey and cigarettes to learn the basics and taught himself advance techniques later on.

Erick, who attended Berkley College of Music, released his first album titled "Turning Me Loose" in 2007. Since then, his fame in New England grew and he is expected to release his new album, "Two Hundred Dollars and Ten Cents" in the last week of December 2015.
