ABC confirms Brad Womack's 'Bachelor' return

It's official: Former "Bachelor" Brad Womack is taking a second stab at finding love on ABC's reality TV show.

The announcement was made Monday during "Dancing With the Stars," where Womack appeared in person, reported Zap2it. The confirmation comes after days of rumors about his return to the show.

Womack was last seen in the show's 11th season, which aired in 2007. He upset some fans when he decided not to choose either of his two finalists: DeAnna Pappas, who went on to star in "The Bachelorette," and Jenni Croft.

ABC in a press release said the 37-year-old Austin, Texas, resident is "a better person" who is "more ready than ever to start a wife and family."

"Bachelor" returns in January.
