‘Bachelor’ Alum Colton Underwood Is Engaged to His ‘Best Friend, Teammate and Now Fiancé’

Congratulations are in order for former Bachelor contestant Colton Underwood!

The 30-year-old TV personality just revealed to People that he is engaged to his boyfriend, Jordan C. Brown. “After my birthday, Jordan and I went to Big Sur for a weekend getaway to decompress and relax in nature,” he told the publication. “I couldn't have pictured a more beautiful place to celebrate an amazing milestone in my life and relationship.”

He then added, “I'm extremely happy! 2021 was the most transformative year of my life. Starting 2022 off with my best friend, teammate and now fiancé is something I never thought was going to be possible.”

The couple have been together since summer 2021, after Underwood came out as gay in an emotional Good Morning America interview in April of that same year. However, the pair weren't linked publicly until the fall, when they embarked on a romantic Hawaiian vacation. Underwood then told the New York Times he was “very happy and very in love.”

In the past few months, the pair have made their relationship more public. Last November, they attended the Baby2Baby 10-Year Gala together, and then they were spotted at the Favorite Daughter store opening in Beverly Hills the following month.

Underwood has shown his love for Brown on social media and just a few weeks ago, Underwood marked Valentine's Day with a romantic slideshow (as seen in the post above). The former football player said, “This valentines day is a special one. I get to love who I want and I love loving on you. @jordancbrown_.”

Congrats to the happy couple! (Now we just need to see a picture of those rings.)
