The mother of “Bachelor” star Matt James may be following in her son’s footsteps on her path to find love.

We hear that is primed to join “The Golden Bachelor,” ABC’s new dating contest for the 60-and-over crowd later this year.

“Matt’s mom Patty is speaking with producers about competing on the new season,” a show insider told Page Six.

Matt made history as the first Black “Bachelor” when he appeared on season 25 of the hit show back in 2021. His mom became a fan favorite after appearing at the beginning of the season and during the finale. She said she was doubtful that her son would get engaged to any of the women, and ultimately he ended up dumping Rachael Kirkconnell after past racist behavior surfaced.

But perhaps his mom will have better luck with the show’s latest franchise. ABC announced its senior citizen spinoff at the network’s upfronts last month. The network describes the series as “a whole new kind of love story – one for the golden years.”

The unscripted series will give “one hopeless romantic” a shot at love.

A synopsis of the new series explains, “the women arriving at the mansion have a lifetime of experience, living through love, loss and laughter, hoping for a spark that ignites a future full of endless possibilities. In the end, will our… man turn the page to start a new chapter with the woman of his dreams?”

ABC has not announced the identity of its “Golden Bachelor” or the contestants who will compete for his love. A rep for the show did not comment.
