Meet Colton Underwood's New Boyfriend, Jordan C. Brown

Former "Bachelor" star Colton Underwood stunned fans back in April when he came out as gay during a television appearance on "Good Morning America." The reality star shared his story, revealing that he's happier than ever to be living as his authentic self, per Us Weekly. "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 shared. "I've ran from myself for a long time, I've hated myself for a long time. I'm gay." 

Underwood shared that after years of denial, he "came to terms" with his identity as a gay man, but knew that the following step would be to tell people. Despite the anxiety that can often associate coming out to friends, family, and the public, Underwood shared that he was "the happiest and healthiest" version of himself. "I got into a place with my personal life that was dark, and bad, and I can list a bunch of different things, but they'd all be excuses," Underwood continued. "I think overall, the reason why now is because I got to a place where I didn't think I was ever going to share this I don't, I would have rather died than, say, I'm gay. I think that was sort of my wake-up call."

A few months after publicly coming out, Underwood was spotted with his new boyfriend, Jordan C. Brown (via Yahoo! Life) and fans immediately wanted the details about his new man.

Here's what we know about Jordan C. Brown
