‘BIP’: The Real Reason Why Caelynn Miller-Keyes and Dean Unglert May Never Get Married or Have Kids

They may not have gotten engaged on Bachelor in Paradise Season 6, but fans have been hoping to see Dean Unglert and Caelynn Miller-Keyes get married after dozens of adorable Instagram adventures emerged within the past few months.

“I don’t know if Dean and Caelynn will [get engaged] soon. But anytime they go on a fun cute trip, I’m kind of, like, in the back of my mind, hoping for it or something,” Miller-Keyes and Unglert’s BIP co-star, Hannah Godwin, said in an interview with Entertainment Tonight, echoing the voices heard across Bachelor Nation.

However, it seems The Bachelor fandom won’t be seeing Miller-Keyes and Unglert’s wedding anytime soon. Recently, both parties have expressed their doubts about marriage at this time, with Unglert also revealing he doesn’t want to bring kids into the world right now either.

Will Dean Unglert and Caelynn Miller-Keyes get married?

At iHeartRadio’s KIIS FM 2019 Jingle Ball on Dec. 6, Unglert opened up about the potential of getting married to Miller-Keyes during an interview with Us Weekly.

“We’re obviously not on engagement-level yet. It’s gonna take a little bit of time,” Unglert said.

The 26-year-old also shared an inside joke he has with his BIP girlfriend. When the publication asked Unglert if he saw marriage in his future with Miller-Keyes, he said, “That’s never going to happen.”

Unglert continued: “She does joke around about us getting married all the time, and I always say, ‘Sorry, it’s not going to happen.’”

Nevertheless, it’s still possible a wedding for Unglert and Miller-Keyes is off the table.

“I don’t know, I’m super unconventional and she obviously is a little more conventional,” Unglert said. “We joke around about it. Just try to keep expectations to a minimum, you know? Like I said on the show, underpromise, overdeliver.”

Dean Unglert says he doesn’t want kids, but Caelynn Miller-Keyes does

Meanwhile, still speaking with Us Weekly, it seems Unglert doesn’t want to have kids. However, the BIP star admitted Miller-Keyes shares a different opinion.

“The older I get, I feel like the less and less I want kids,” Unglert said. “I remember when I was a teenager, I was always so dead-set on having kids, but the world’s in flux. I don’t know if it’s necessarily the most responsible thing to do to bring a child into this world. That being said, she wants kids, so I don’t know.”

Nevertheless, whether it’s having kids or getting married, it appears Unglert wants to make sure he is ready to make a decision about a major life event before diving in.

“I don’t know if I don’t want kids just because she wants kids, and I don’t want to get married just because she wants to get married,” he said.

What Caelynn Miller-Keyes thinks about marrying Dean Unglert

Now, Unglert’s remarks about not wanting to marry Miller-Keyes right now may seem a little awkward, given the former beauty queen’s comments about getting married in November.

“I always joke with him about us getting married,” Miller-Keyes told Us Weekly at the time. “Maybe that’s in our future, but it would be way down our future.”

But then at Jingle Ball, Miller-Keyes spoke with Hollywood Life and revealed she isn’t sure if Unglert is “the one,” as they’ve only been dating for a few months.

“I’m very happy right now, but it’s hard to say if he’s ‘the one,'” Miller-Keyes said. “I sure hope I’m done dating. I really enjoy his company and our time together, but who knows? We’ve only been dating for six months, so I can’t definitely say he’s the one, you know?”

The 24-year-old also shared she won’t be spending the holidays with her boyfriend.

“It’s just… holidays are a lot of pressure, so we’d rather not. We’re not spending the holidays together,” Miller-Keyes said. “I’ll go to Virginia for Christmas and he’s going to be, I think in Switzerland? Then we’ll meet up for New Year’s in Germany.”

Big picture elements are important aspects of longterm relationships. However, as Miller-Keyes pointed out, the couple has only been dating for six months. And although they both seem committed, Unglert and Miller-Keyes still have plenty of time to enjoy their relationship — without worrying about the pressures of marriage and kids.
