After being linked together for months, former The Bachelor star Colton Underwood has taken his romance with Jordan C. Brown public. For the first time, the reality star has shared pictures of him and his boyfriend together.
According to Us Weekly, Underwood shared his love with Brown in a series of Instagram Stories that said “Happy birthday to my dog-loving, family man, corn-fed love.” Brown, who is a political strategist who has worked with Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama, was celebrating his 39th birthday.
The two had previously kept their relationship private, avoiding photos or posts together. But Underwood revealed to Us Weekly last week that he was in a relationship. “I’m happy, I’m in love, and I’m in a good position,” he said. “Everything as far as that goes has been pretty smooth.”
Underwood first came out back in April in an interview with Good Morning America. “Obviously this year has been a lot for a lot of people and it's probably made a lot of people look themselves in the mirror to figure out who they are and figure out what they've been running from or have been putting off in their lives," he said at the time. "For me, I've run from myself for a long time, I've hated myself for a long time and ... I'm gay.”
His coming out journey has been chronicled in the new Netflix reality series Coming Out Colton. While he talks about his coming out and his journey to being publicly out, he does not delve into his love life. You can watch Coming Out Colton now.
