In addition to being lucky in love, the model is also getting a change of pace in Texas. In her fresh start, she’s shifting her focus on new priorities. That includes her equestrian passion, which she shares with Banuelos who is a professional horseman.

“She loves being out of Hollywood and will take modeling jobs if it’s a right fit, but has taken a step back for now,” the source adds. “It’s not her priority anymore.”

Before getting serious with Banuelos, Bella last dated Marc Kalman. The pair broke up in July 2023 after three years of dating. Following their split, an additional source told Us that she wasn’t in a rush to start dating right away.

“She’s still in the process of adjusting to the single life after her split from Marc,” the insider shared at the time, “She’s really proud of her sobriety and is focused on her well-being and her career for now. She’ll get back out into the dating scene when the time is right.”
