Although Colton, 30, frequently travels to Colorado, where most of his friends and family reside, the Bachelor Nation alum also has a residence in Los Angeles.
How Did Colton Underwood and Jordan Brown Meet?
It’s unclear how Jordan and Colton initially crossed paths, but the political strategist first appeared on the former football player’s Instagram in June 2021.
“Friends & family. I love y’all,” Colton captioned a slew of photos that included Jordan, his parents, his grandmother, Olympian Gus Kenworthy and many more.
That being said, Jordan has plenty of A-list friends that keep him well connected in Hollywood. His Instagram includes photos with Sophia Bush, Olivia Wilde, Olivia Munn and Justin Bieber.
Does Jordan Have Kids?
It does not appear that Jordan has kids of his own, but he is very close with his ex’s daughters — Zella and Blaze. He frequently shares photos with the young girls.
How Serious Are Colton and Jordan?
The duo were first spotted kissing on the beach while staying at the Four Seasons in Maui back in September 2021, according to photos obtained by TMZ.
The pair became serious enough for Colton to introduce Jordan his family, according to an interview with the New York Times. “The easiest way for me to say it is that it was like bringing a girl home,” he said in November 2021. “Like, nobody batted an eye.”
Colton and Jordan are taking their love to the next level, as the couple announced in February 2022 that they are engaged.
“After my birthday, Jordan and I went to Big Sur for a weekend getaway to decompress and relax in nature. I couldn’t have pictured a more beautiful place to celebrate an amazing milestone in my life and relationship,” the former football player told People, gushing that he’s “extremely happy” after a “transformative” year. “Starting 2022 off with my best friend, teammate and now fiancé is something I never thought was going to be possible.”
Colton came out as gay on Good Morning America in April 2021. “This year’s been a lot for a lot of people and it’s probably made a lot of people look at themselves in the year and figure out who they are,” he said at the time. “I’ve ran from myself for a long time, I’ve hated myself for a long time. I’m gay. I came to terms with that earlier this year, and the next step in all of this was sort of letting people know. … I’m the happiest and healthiest I’ve ever been in my life. That means the world to me.”
