Galavis, the franchise's only Latino Bachelor who starred on Season 18, revealed he's in a pretty serious relationship with Osmariel Villalobos, a Venezuelan TV show host and former beauty contestant, Peoplereported.
Although the couple has only been dating for a few months, Galavis seems completely smitten, especially because they have "a lot in common."
"She cares for people. She's very family-oriented. That was important to me... We love Reggaeton music and dance all the time. We sing in the car -- it's horrible singing, but we do it anyway... She likes sports, too," Galavis gushed to People.
"I'm impressed by her. I'm amazed by the things she says and does. I'm happy to be with her... We're so much alike. She's like a female version of me -- the Juan Pablo that people know personally, not the TV one!"
According to Galavis, Villalobos caught his attention last year when a mutual friend showed him her photo.
"I asked, 'Who's that girl? She's cute,'" Galavis admitted. "He told me, 'If you meet her in real life, you'll die. She's great!'"
Galavis, however, apparently didn't make his move until she posted a May 13 video on social media of her dancing with her nephew.
"I thought it was cute, so I commented on her Instagram. She replied to me, and then I wrote to her on private message. We talked about her nephew, and she said that she was spoiling him! We exchanged numbers and then we started texting each other. And it started that way," Galavis said.
Two weeks ago, Galavis posted a video on Instagram in which he wished Villalobos a happy birthday. In the video, she sang to him and kissed him repeatedly as he stared at her longingly and with admiration.
"Thanks for COMING in the moment I LESS expect it and when I need it the MOST... Happy Bday. Mi Baby @osmariel and I KNOW is gonna be the FIRST of many together... I love YOU," Galavis captioned the video.
A huge bonus? Villalobos apparently gets along beautifully with his seven-year-old daughter Camila.

"My daughter loved her right away," Galavis told People.
"She had a relationship with [my ex Nikki Ferrell], but she was really young and didn't understand much. She's older now and she understands it, and she loves Osmariel. That's important for me; I have to be careful about who I bring into our lives. I'm looking for a woman who will love Camila and could someday be her stepmom."
Galavis and Ferrell had a highly-publicized and criticized relationship with following the finale of his The Bachelor edition in March 2014, which featured an anti-climactic ending in which Galavis told Ferrell, "I like you," and offered her nothing but his final rose.
Many The Bachelor viewers despised Galavis during his season for how he treated the women, and those negative opinions spilled onto Ferrell for choosing to be with him despite those obvious flaws.
After appearing on VH1'sCouples Therapy, Ferrell and the former pro soccer player split in October 2014.
Reports circulated at the time Galavis couldn't communicate his feelings for Ferrell and allegedly used her for the fame of their celebrity pairing.
"I knew I was never going to be the No. 1 priority, like, he has a daughter. But I mean, there's a difference between being the second priority and the seventh priority. We're just different people and... we just never saw eye to eye on [things]," Ferrell told Chris Harrison in January 2015.
However, Ferrell moved on with her life and got engaged in January 2016 to Tyler Vanloo. He proposed during a snowboarding trip the couple took to San Juan National Forest in Pagosa Springs, CO.
It's been two years since their stint on reality TV ended.
"Now I feel that I can have a normal and healthy relationship away from the media -- even though [Villalobos'] job is in the media!" Galavis explained.
