A Source Says Colton Underwood Has Talked About Proposing To Cassie Randolph In ‘The Next Few Months’

Former bachelor Colton Underwood and his season winner Cassie Randolph had a bumpy start to their relationship. It seemed Cassie just wasn’t interested in Colton the way he was in her. She even tried to leave the show because she loved him but wasn’t “in love” with him. But, today, they seem to be really, truly happy together.

As Bachelor Nation is not soon to forget, Cassie and Colton didn’t get engaged at the end of Colton’s season. They decided to take their relationship one day at a time and, for them, that meant not rushing into anything like moving in together or getting engaged.

Cassie Randolph and Colton Underwood felt defensive of their relationship

Shortly after Colton’s Bachelor finale aired, fans were especially critical of the couple’s relationship. Colton was criticized for pursuing a woman who wasn’t that into him and Cassie was criticized for staying on the show when she didn’t love Colton.

In response, the couple would hint in interviews that they’d be getting engaged sooner rather than later. But they retracted such statements a few weeks later, saying they only said that because they felt pressured to defend their relationship.

“I think initially, coming off of it, honestly we felt the need to defend it. Yes, we’re at this stage, and we wanted everyone to believe how much we cared about each other, because we do, so much, and we thought that was how we’d go about it,” Cassie told ET.

A source says Colton Underwood wants to propose to Cassie Randolph soon

Cassie and Colton told ET that they wanted to take their time with their relationship back in May of this year.

But a source just told Us Weekly that Colton might not be able to wait much longer.

“Colton is head over heels in love with Cassie,” said the source. “He feels so blessed to have her in his life and to call his person. He is obsessed with her and loves being with and talking to her every day, even if it’s about silly little things over text message. They have a lot of fun together. Colton has also gotten very close with Cassie’s sister, Michelle, and Michelle’s boyfriend, Gregg Sulkin, as well as a bunch of Cassie’s best friends.”

Though the source says Colton would love to propose to Cassie “in the next few months,” he knows she’s not there yet.

“Colton has talked about proposing to Cassie sometime in the next few months, but he knows that she is not in a rush to get married. She was pretty hesitant about their relationship at first, but she ultimately fell for Colton and now loves him,” they said.

The source adds that Cassie’s hesitation could largely be due to the fact that she’s still so young (24).

“At the moment, he definitely has stronger feelings than she does, though. Cassie grew up with very traditional values. The thought of taking the next step in their relationship scares her at times because she is still very young,” they said.
