Colton Underwood is engaged to Jordan C. Brown.
The Bachelor alum is no longer a bachelor after his engagement to political strategist Jordan C. Brown.
Congratulations are in order for the former professional football player turned reality star as he and boyfriend Jordan C. Brown take the next step in their relationship.
Colton publicly came out in April 2021 and documented his experience for a Netflix special Coming Out Colton. During the special Colton opened up about the struggles he had as a gay man in the NFL and the suicidal thoughts he experienced.
“Overall the reason why [I came out] now is because I got to a place where … I would’ve rather died than say I’m gay,” he shared during an interview with Good Morning America. “There was a moment in LA that I woke up, and I didn’t think I was going to wake up. I didn’t have the intention of waking up. I think that for me was my wake-up call.”
Colton and Brown were first linked to each other in September 2021 after a source told Page Six, “They were all over each other at [a] resort” in Maui, Hawaii.
Now the former Bachelor star is prepared to walk down the aisle.
“After my birthday, Jordan and I went to Big Surf for a weekend getaway to decompress and relax in nature,” Colton told People. “I couldn’t have pictured a more beautiful place to celebrate an amazing milestone in my life and relationship.”
“I’m extremely happy! 2021 was the most transformative year of my life,” he continued. “Starting 2022 off with my best friend, teammate and now fiancé is something I never thought was going to be possible.”
Colton celebrated the news via Instagram on Monday with the caption, “life is going to be fun with you ♥️”.
Jordan also posted a photo of the pair on Monday. His caption read, “The only time in my life I’m ok with wasting a bottle of champagne. I love you babe. ❤️ 🤵♂️ 🍾”.
