Warning: This story contains spoilers from episodes 7-9 of Love Is Blind season 6.

Love Is Blind’s Jimmy Presnell is setting the record straight on his feelings for Chelsea Blackwell.

In the most recent episodes from season 6, tensions rise between the pair as Chelsea, 31, confronts Jimmy, 28, for not kissing her enough. He then accused her of being "a little clingy."

While the duo eventually made up, viewers continue to speculate about the relationship's future — largely due to other connections Chelsea and Jimmy made in the pods — and whether they will make it down the aisle. However, on Thursday, just one day after the latest round of episodes were released on Netflix, Jimmy made his feelings for Chelsea clear with a PDA-filled Instagram post of the couple kissing.

Alongside the photograph of the twosome kissing, which was taken the day Chelsea first met his friends Barbara and Maddie, Jimmy noted that this is "proof I kiss chels 😂."

"On a real note, Chelsea is an amazing person and loves so hard," he wrote. "Due to time, a lot of the full story this far wasn’t shown. There are reasons we are both fighting for each other and sticking to our promise."

Addressing the criticism they have received from fans, Jimmy continued, “It’s easy to make assumptions off of snippets of our relationship, but I wanted y’all to be easy on my girl. At the end of the day, we are all human, and it took a lot of courage for every one of us to put ourselves out there to find our person.”

In responding to Jimmy's Instagram post, Chelsea shared a short yet heartfelt message. "My lil heart ❤ forever grateful," she added.

Others also fled to the comments section to show their support, including Trevor Sova, who also previously pursued Chelsea in the pods. Trevor, 31, poked fun at Jimmy's post by responding with the nauseated face emoji and later writing, “We all love to f--k with one another.”

Jessica Vestal, who was Jimmy’s other love interest in the pods, supported Chelsea by writing, “Luckiest man in the world 🏆.”

After getting engaged in the pods, Chelsea and Jimmy have been left wondering where the two stand — and what meeting Trevor, 31, and Jessica, 29, for the first time will do to their relationship.
