Best wishes to the newly engaged pair! We can't wait to hear the wedding bells ringing for you both.
The Bachelor alum Colton Underwood and political strategist, Jordan C. Brown, have announced their engagement. It’s been less than a year since they started dating.
“After my birthday, Jordan and I went to Big Sur for a weekend getaway to decompress and relax in nature,” Underwood exclusively 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 added. “Starting 2022 off with my best friend, teammate and now fiancé is something I never thought was going to be possible.”
The great news was also shared on social media by the now-engaged couple. “Life is going to be fun with you,” Underwood wrote on Instagram. Brown for his part, also shared his sentiment on their engagement, “The only time in my life I’m ok with wasting a bottle of champagne. I love you babe.”
Underwood and Brown were seen together on the beaches of Hawaii in September. They began dating in the summer of 2021, just after the former reality star openly announced his sexual orientation in April of same year.
“I was struggling with my sexuality but I had such a level of fear over being gay,” he shared to the publication. “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.”
They became Instagram official in December 2021, and the two has since professed their affection for each other on social media.
