Colton Underwood is engaged to Jordan C. Brown.
The 30-year-old TV star – who came out publicly as gay in April 2021 – revealed his partner popped the question while on a relaxing break in Big Sur, Calif., after his 30th birthday on January 26.
Colton told People, “After my birthday, Jordan and I went to Big Sur for a weekend getaway to decompress and relax in nature.
“I couldn’t have imagined a more beautiful place to celebrate an incredible milestone in my life and my relationship.”
He added: “I am extremely happy! 2021 has been the most transformative year of my life. Starting 2022 with my best friend, teammate and now fiancé is something I never thought possible.
Sharing the news on Instagram, Colton wrote, “Life is gonna be fun with you.”
The proposal comes after the beloved couple spent $3 million on their first home together in Sherman Oaks, Calif., after making their relationship Instagram official in December.
The luxurious two-story property has four bedrooms and four bathrooms.
Colton had shared a photo of himself eating pizza and wine on the floor in an empty room with no furniture.
He captioned the post: “good carbs, good wine, happy life (sic)”
Colton is taking the next step in his relationship after recently saying he was “in love” and “in a good place” in his life.
The 2019 ‘Bachelor’ star shared, “I’m happy, I’m in love and I’m in a good place.
“Everything went smoothly. What was also so cool was that after the show was over, I didn’t know what was really going to happen next. I knew I was still dating and I still am. So there are still things to sort out right now.”
Colton had previously admitted that he “didn’t want to be gay”.
Opening up about his struggles in his Netflix series, ‘Coming Out Colton’, he said: “I didn’t want to be gay. And the main voices in my head were just like, ‘You’re going to be fine, you’ I’ll get through this, you’ll get through this.'”
Colton thought he would “die” with his “secret”, but eventually walked out because he felt “mortified” by his behavior with Cassie Randolph.
The duo ended their romance in May 2020 after appearing on ‘The Bachelor’ the previous year, and the 26-year-old beauty later filed a restraining order against him for alleged harassment, although she quit two months later.
Colton said: “I never thought I was going to come out, I thought I was going to die with this secret.
“[I put] a poor girl through [a] the hell of my own insecurities.”
