He took a break from his Instagram for over a month following the announcement. His first post to Instagram on May 9 was about his dog Cody’s excitement about summer being near.

Many of the comments demanded answers about his sudden split from Theresa Nist. One follower accused Gerry of already dating despite still being legally married.

Theresa Nist never took a social media break and mainly receives only supportive comments, though some fans did misunderstand her post about taking out the trash.

One constant fixture on Theresa Nist’s social media is her daughter, Jen, and grandchildren. In fact, family is the reason the Golden Bachelor couple gave for their divorce: Neither was willing to uproot their lives and move away from their families.

The latest family outing took Theresa Nist, her daughter, and grandkids to a beach in their home state of New Jersey. “Greetings from Long Branch, NJ! Of all the beaches in NJ, this is the one my dad used to take us to when we were young,” Theresa shared with fans in the caption.

She continued, “Today Jen and I are walking around with Dempsey and Leo, while Henry’s at a birthday party with his friends. Looks so much different (and nicer!) than when I was a child!”
