Why did my ex post a photo with his girlfriend right after we talked again for the first time?

SomewhereElse
I broke up with him in February because he kissed someone else and didn't want to be committed. Since then, we've had very minimal contact through shared friends. A few days ago, I reached out to him because I saw something that reminded me of him and I also wanted to hear what he'd been up to.

He got fairly active on his Instagram after the breakup, mostly posting selfies - but I heard that he started dating someone in June through mutual friends. I'm not particularly active on my own Insta, but when I checked it a few days ago, I noticed that he unfollowed me although he used to watch the few stories I posted pretty much as soon as I did. I found it odd since we had a very civil breakup, but figured he doesn't owe me anything and reached out anyway. Ended up having a nice chat, in no... and then today, he posts a selfie with his girlfriend on his story.

Is it just me or is the timing a bit strange? They've been together for a while, there have been (very subtle) hints that she exists on his profile before so it's not like she's been a secret... almost feels like he now wants to show her off to me or something. What do you think this is all about? Is it kind of a primitive "back off, I'm taken" thing? Bragging? Pure coincidence?
