“They met through mutual friends,” a source told the outlet, adding they had been dating for just over a month. “She’s super happy. She’s met his kids, her kids have met him. Everyone likes him.”

It's clear her fellow Housewives agree she's made a good choice, with Tamra Judge commenting on her Instagram, "Love birds. Can’t wait to meet him tomorrow."

Newcomer Braunwyn Windham-Burke added, “You have a good one!!”

Shannon and ex-husband David Beador finalized their divorce in April after nearly two years fighting things out in court. The exes, who are parents to 18-year-old daughter Sophie and 15-year-old twins Stella and Adeline, first announced they were splitting in October 2017.

October, told PEOPLE, "It’s crazy to think what you can accomplish in a year. I’ve learned a lot. To say in one year, I’m going to lose nearly all my weight, launch a business that so far is doing well, move on from a marriage, and strengthen friendships and established new ones? That’s a tall order! But I’ve gotten here one step at a time."

The reality personality added she had "gotten stronger, deep down."

"Part of what I did after I separated with David — while staying home, not going out, and not doing much of anything — was I tried to self-reflect and figure out the changes I wanted to make in myself," she explained. "What kind of person do I want to be?”

"I wasn’t any rose to come home to at the end of my marriage. I was really reactive," Beador added. "And I needed to learn to take a step back, take in any potential criticism I might perceive about being negative, and really examine that."


The Real Housewives of Orange County returns to Bravo Tuesday, Aug. 6 at 9 p.m. ET.
