Dean Unglert and Caelynn Miller-Keyes are engaged!
The Bachelor Nation couple has dated for the last three years after falling for one another on Bachelor in Paradise Season 6.
Since their relationship in 2019, discussion of an engagement has kept the couple in the headlines as Caelynn clearly wanted to be engaged, and Dean was not as excited about the idea and preferred a less traditional approach to their union.
Dean was criticized for some of his stances regarding an engagement and proposal, such as suggesting Caelynn should propose to him or buy him a truck if she wants them to move towards marriage, especially since she makes more money than him.
Previously, Caelynn seemed to allude to buying Dean a truck which could contribute to this latest development in their relationship.
It seems Caelynn’s patience paid off, as the pair is reportedly preparing to be husband and wife officially.

Sources spoke with PEOPLE to confirm the news of Dean and Caelynn’s long-awaited engagement.
Dean also shared about proposing on his Help! I Suck at Dating podcast he cohosts with Bachelor Nation star Jared Haibon.
Dean explained how Caelynn’s original 4-carat emerald-cut diamond ring was misplaced, so he got her a new placeholder engagement ring. He also assured that the pair would be engaged before the podcast aired.
Before the engagement news, Dean and Caeylynn had agreed to wear commitment rings showing their loyalty to one another.
With their engagement, it remains to be seen how Dean and Caelynn will approach a wedding, as Dean previously mentioned Italy being a spectacular wedding location.
