On March 20, Pilot Pete took to Instagram to answer questions from his followers when a fan straight up asked him when he’s going to stop living with his mom and dad. “Any plans to not live at home?” the fan wrote during the Q+A.
He reportedly answered by singing a rendition of John Denver’s “Leaving On a Jet Plane” with his parents hanging out in the background and changing one of the lines to “they’re cutting the cord, it’s time to say goodbye” as his dad jokingly says, “don’t let the door hit you on the way out.”
“We’re empty nesters!” Barb responds, according to People. Interestingly, “Leaving On a Jet Plane” is the same song featured in Barb’s cryptic Instagram post from the day Madison Prewett and Peter announced their breakup.
“But real talk yes, either NYC for about a year or LA,” he wrote on top of the video. So there, he’s finally making the big move.
The Weber family is reportedly closer than ever during the coronavirus outbreak despite Chris Harrison telling Glamour that Barb and Peter’s relationship was “damaged” after the After the Final Rose special. Peter almost immediately shot down rumors of a rift, referring to reports as “fake news” on—you guessed it—Instagram.
So yeah, the Weber family is sticking together and posting up a storm, at least until Peter is ready to leave the nest. “This time of quarantine is bringing the Weber family closer than ever before,” a source told Us Weekly on March 19. “They are using this time together to bond. During isolation, Peter and his family have been watching movies, playing board games, and cooking together.”
They’re also dancing, apparently.
