Former ‘Bachelor’ Colton Underwood Makes It Instagram Official with His Boyfriend

It's been an exciting week for former Bachelor star Colton Underwood.

The 29-year-old reality television personality just saw the release of his new Netflix series Coming Out Colton on Friday. The unscripted series explores Underwood's coming out journey and it features other famous queer figures like Olympic freestyle skier Gus Kenworthy and former NFL player Michael Sam.

Now, Underwood has just taken another major step in his life, by making things Instagram official with boyfriend Jordan C. Brown.

Over the weekend, Underwood celebrated Brown's 39th birthday with a no-longer-visible post on his Instagram Story. “Happy birthday to my dog man...corn,” he said, along with a series of pictures to match each of the titles.

The final slide included a photo of the two sitting side-by-side, with Underwood's hand resting on Brown's leg. The Bachelor star's rescue dog, Zooka, was seen sitting between his legs.

While it is unclear how long the pair have been dating, Underwood told The New York Times that they have been together for several months.

Brown, who is a political strategist, was first linked to Underwood back in September, when photos of the pair surfaced while they were on a romantic Hawaiian vacation. Underwood has said that they are “very happy and very in love.”

The couple was also spotted together last month at the Baby2Baby 10-Year Gala in Hollywood.

However, Underwood—whose life has often been in the public eye—would like to keep things private.

“Having a public relationship, for me, was not healthy,” he said. “I just think right now I'm really sort of protecting and guarding what I have.”

We've very happy for you, Colton.
