What Dean Unglert thinks is his greatest success with Caelynn Miller-Keyes

At the start of 2020, Unglert and Miller-Keyes began fostering a dog named Pappy. The two ended up adopting the senior dog in March 2020. In the Q&A on Miller-Keye’s YouTube channel, Unglert said he thinks Pappy is the greatest success of their relationship.

“The greatest success when bettering our relationship has been… Pappy,” Unglert said. “Pappy was a great success and he bettered our relationship.”

Miller-Keyes agreed, saying, “He did, he definitely did. He brought us closer, we each get to see each other’s parenting styles.”

Unglert also explained why he has been able to be more open with Miller-Keyes compared to past relationships.

“I was at a point in my life where I was ready to be like just more honest with everything, my life, and who I was, and confront those demons within myself,” Unglert said. “I kept like just being honest and open… and the whole time every time I was doing those things… Caelynn always stuck around… the constant reinforcement that I could keep being myself was a very nice thing.”

“We’ll get married at some point,” Miller-Keyes assured fans.

“But when would you want to get married?” Unglert asked. “Let’s have that conversation real quick.”

“Maybe like two years,” Miller-Keyes said. “2023.”

“Nice, 2023. All right, December 2023, sure… we’ll have the conversation,” Unglert said.

Why the two wear commitment rings

On June 22, 2020, Miller-Keyes and Unglert appeared on The Bachelor: The Greatest Seasons — Ever. Chris Harrison interviewed the couple, and Unglert went into more detail about what his commitment ring means to him and Miller-Keyes.

“In my opinion, I don’t need the title of ‘husband’ to show the world I’m committed to one person,” Unglert said. “So the fact that I’m wearing the ring is showing just that. I’m committed to Caelynn and only Caelynn. And that’s why I’ve worn it.”

He continued, “It’s not a traditional marriage or engagement ring. But it’s our little way of telling the world — or the people we’re around — that we’re committed to each other.”
