Colton Underwood gave an update on his wedding planning. The former ‘Bachelor’ star, who came out as gay in April 2021, is engaged to wed his first boyfriend, Jordan C. Brown.
Underwood, 30, and Brown, 38, announced their engagement in February 2022 after just eight months of dating. Amid their turbulent relationship, the two appear to be on the same page when it comes to their upcoming wedding.
Colton Underwood revealed why he needs to have a big wedding
During an appearance on March 23rd at “The Talk” Underwood revealed that he’s “the happiest” and “healthiest” he’s ever been. The former “Bachelor” star hit rock bottom two years ago while still dealing with his homosexuality. In 2020, Colton stalked his former girlfriend Cassie Randolph and installed a tracking device on her car after their breakup. Randolph was forced to file a restraining order against Underwood, E! messages reported back then.
Now that he’s doing better, Underwood is focused on his future. With multiple reality shows under his belt — Underwood has appeared on The Bachelorette, The Bachelor, Bachelor in Paradise, Coming Out Colton, and the CBS contest Beyond the Edge — he knows plenty of celebrities. When The Talk co-host Sheryl Underwood asked if he would have any celebrities at his wedding, the former Bachelor star admitted the guest list was a work in progress.
“We’re still working on the guest list,” Underwood revealed. “COVID has really secured the situation throughout the wedding venue. We want to make it big, but it depends.”
Underwood made it clear that his wedding will not be a small and intimate gathering. When asked if he was inviting about 200 people, he gave the impression that many more guests could come.
“My family alone was 75 [people] when we made the list,” he said. “We tried to keep it small, but as we both added our families, we thought we might as well do it.”
The former soccer player also revealed that he and his fiancé came up with a rule to keep the guest list low.
“We actually have a rule,” he said. “So our rule was, if we haven’t met you as a couple, you won’t be invited because we don’t need to introduce ourselves at our own wedding. So that’s sort of our rule.”
However, there could be an exception to the rule. In the interview, Colton also joked that any celebrity with the surname “Underwood” — that would be Sheryl, Carrie, and Blair — would be invited to his wedding.
Colton Underwood has announced that he will not have a prenuptial agreement with his husband
This isn’t the first time Underwood has opened up about his marriage. During an appearance on March 7, 2022 on “See what’s happening live” Underwood was asked about his wedding plans. The former ABC star admitted to Andy Cohen that it will be a while before he gets engaged to Brown because they want to do “big” things.
“It’s what — secured for three years now because of COVID?” Underwood told Cohen to book a location. “I want a good wedding. We need a venue and venues are secured. We’re going to be big.”
Underwood also admitted that he has no plans to sign a prenup with Brown because he doesn’t want to spread negative sentiment about their marriage.
“We’ve had this conversation before,” Underwood told Cohen. “We’re in it for the long haul.”
