Colton Underwood’s engaged? Yes!
Colton Underwood, 30, and Jordan C. Brown, 39, are officially engaged. Underwood told PEOPLE, “Starting 2022 off with my best friend, teammate, and now fiancé is something I never thought was going to be possible.”
The former The Bachelor star and his political strategist fiancé were first linked together in the summer of 2021. The pair first went public as a couple in December of 2021.
“After my birthday, Jordan and I went to Big Sur for a weekend getaway to decompress and relax in nature,” Underwood told PEOPLE of the engagement.
“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.”
“I was struggling with my sexuality, but I had such a level of fear over being gay,” he added. “Now that I’ve been out to myself for a year, it’s the healthiest and happiest I’ve ever felt. And there is nothing I would ever want to be but gay.”
Underwood made headlines earlier this year following the premiere of his Netflix special, Coming Out Colton.
