Caelynn ‘Really Into’ Idea Of Proposing To Dean

Caelynn 'Really Into' Idea Of Proposing To Dean

Bachelor In Paradise star Caelynn Miller-Keyes likes the idea of proposing to her boyfriend Dean Unglert and wants to make it a memorable moment.

The rollercoaster relationship of Bachelor In Paradise stars Caelynn Miller-Keyes and Dean Unglert got more surprising after Caelynn shared that she’s “really into” the idea of proposing to him. Out of the many couples to emerge from The Bachelor franchise, Caelynn and Dean aren’t at the top of many fan-favorite lists. On Bachelor In Paradise season 6, after quickly forming strong feelings for one another, Dean abruptly departed the beach on Caelynn’s birthday. The two reconciled and Caelynn even gave Dean’s nomadic lifestyle a try post-production. However, many viewers believe their love is one-sided, especially given Caelynn’s recent remarks.


In November 2021, Dean, a finalist on Rachel Lindsey’s season of The Bachelorette, was extremely vocal about his stance on getting down on one knee. But Caelynn, who first appeared on Colton Underwood’s season of The Bachelor, has hinted about wanting to be engaged by 2022, Dean said on his Help! I Suck at Dating podcast that she’d be waiting a while for him to take action. “I’ve made it pretty clear to her,” he revealed. “I was like, ‘If you really want to get married, you should be the one proposing to me,’ so I think she’s got something in the works for that.” Five months later, Caelynn is sharing how she feels about the situation.

Caelynn admitted in a recent video on her YouTube channel that she didn’t take Dean’s comments too seriously at first. “I thought maybe it was just another thing Dean was saying trying to break the mold. Sometimes he says things just for a reaction.” However, upon realizing the sincerity of Dean’s words, the Bachelor in Paradise star became open to the non-traditional idea. “It would be a day that’s catered to him and he’d get that special moment where he’s really thought of. So, I love the idea of planning a special moment that’s all about him. After I really thought about it, I am really into it. We’re in a partnership, we both should be proposed to!”

Yet many fans don’t recall Dean agreeing to a two-part proposal and feel he’s taking advantage of Caelynn. In response to a post shared by @bachelorettewindmill, a slew of comments had similar opinions. One fan said, “They’re great together but she’s desperate to make him happy. No girl, run!” Meanwhile, others countered that Caelynn is choosing to be with Dean and the unorthodox lifestyle that comes with him. A comment read, “Not defending but he’s been completely honest and transparent about who he is from the start.” Some pro-Dean viewers see his willingness to get married as a major step forward given his fractured bond with his father: “Dean has a lot of trauma and fear associated with marriage and starting a family…The fact that he’s now open to the idea…shows how comfortable he is with her.”

According to Caelynn, if she were to one day marry her boyfriend Dean, the ceremony would likely be at Lake Como in Italy with a maximum of 15 guests. As for expanding the family beyond their dog Alastor, this isn’t something Bachelor In Paradise star Caelynn sees in their immediate future. At 26, Caelynn doesn’t feel ready to be a mother just yet. Given Dean’s family trauma, which involved his siblings leaving and his father converting into a Sikh Kundalini Yogi following the untimely death of his mother, he probably isn’t ready for parenthood either. Some viewers might not agree with the relationship of Caelynn and Dean, but it works for them and that’s all that matters.
