What is known about Gabby Windey and the relationship she has with her mom?
Gabby Windey has made it clear she really doesn’t have a relationship with her mom. US Weekly shared a little about what is known about her mom. During her time with Clayton, she said, “It all kind of stems from not having a ton of security from my mom.” She continued, “As kids, she was really physically affectionate, and then she would flip and kind of withhold your love. She would make you think that because of what you’re doing, she would withhold her attention very clearly. … We don’t really have a relationship now.”
Gabby has clearly become emotional when it comes to her suitors and their families. After Erich brought up in a conversation about wanting a marriage like his parents Gabby told him about her relationship with her mom, Rosemary.
She said, “I’m reserved to share that with people because I’ve been hurt so many times by a parent. … My mom, we’re estranged. I don’t have a relationship with her.”
Gabby has said she wants to be really transparent with her feelings as The Bachelorette. This is why she has brought up her mom multiple times so far during this season.
Has she heard from her mom since filming?
Gabby shared that she really hasn’t heard from her mom since she began filming The Bachelorette. “I really haven’t. But that’s OK.” She went on to say that during one-on-one dates time is so limited that she wants the men to know who she is and how she would be in a relationship.
Gabby said, “I have done a lot of work around my childhood, and sometimes it’s hard feeling the feeling of being loved because it applies to a romantic relationship, you know? It’s hard because it’s almost like, ‘Gosh, I have to get everything out right now.’”
She also pointed out that it’s important to let the guys know all of this because they need to understand why she is the way she is.
Gabby has openly admitted to having been through therapy to help her heal from her mom’s lack of love.
Other things Gabby has said about her mom

Gabby has said she has fears and anxiety from the trauma her mom caused her. She’s had to learn to let people love her.
