He’s the dreamy pilot set to fly straight into our hearts on The Bachelor but Jimmy Nicholson is, at heart, a family man.

Consisting of his mum, dad, sister, brother-in-law and his adorable nephew, Jimmy has a tight bond with his clan.

“I’ve got a really close family,” he admitted in a recent trailer.

“My parents are madly in love and that’s exactly what I want.”

The incoming Bachelor added: “I want someone that I’d be proud to bring home to meet my family. Their opinion means everything to me.”

We can’t wait to see what they’ll have to say to Jimmy’s final two!

If you trawl through Jimmy’s Instagram, which we have 100 per cent done, he regularly shares photos with his fam.

The handsome pilot often shares photos from his travels and adventures, and flying is in his genes!

“My dad is a pilot, not a commercial one, but he worked for QANTAS and so did my grandfather. My uncle is also a pilot… so I grew up with it all my life. It’s a bit of a family tradition,” he said in an interview for Year13 back in 2014.

Jimmy loves the great outdoors and getting active – something he appears to have inherited also.

Back in 2018, he and his mum Susan completed a triathlon in Noosa.

“#Noosatri all done and dusted. What an amazing event. Shout out to mum who came second in her age group,” he captioned the snap.

In fact, Jimmy and his mum are particularly close as evidenced in a cute photo of the duo having a lunch date together.

Jimmy’s particularly fond of his sister’s adorable son, who was born in 2019.

One of the positives to come out of 2020 – my nephew no longer cries when I hold him 😍#unclelove,” he cheekily captioned a photo from last year.

Perhaps he’ll be welcoming his own little bundle of joy with his Bachie winner soon…

Due to the COVID pandemic, Jimmy was stood down from his pilot job but is excited to look for love.

“I feel very fortunate to be the Bachelor 2021. I am ready to open up my heart and meet someone.” he said in a statement.

“I hope to meet someone with similar values that I can have fun with and that shares the same zest for life as myself. The Bachelor franchise has produced many success stories and I hope to be the next.”
