Brown also let followers know about the engagement with a message on his social media.

“The only time in my life I’m ok with wasting a bottle of champagne,” Brown captioned his post. “I love you babe.”

The two have reportedly been dating since the summer of 2021, the outlet noted. News of their relationship surfaced shortly after Underwood came out as gay in April 2021 ahead of the release of his Netflix show “Coming Out Colton.”

The two then became Instagram official in December when Colton posted photos of him and Brown together at the reality star’s birthday celebration.
