Dean Unglert and Caelynn Miller-Keyes are still happily a couple after getting together on the last season of Bachelor In Paradise.

While many Paradise couples typically rush into those big relationship next steps after filming ends, it seems Unglert and Miller-Keyes are taking their time.

Dean Unglert says he won’t be moving in with Caelynn Miller-Keyes any time soon

In a recent interview with Hollywood Life, Unglert was asked if he and Miller-Keyes are going to be moving in together.

“We’ve joked about it a few times. But I don’t think that we’re going to take that step, or I don’t think that I’m going to move out of the van for a long time. I think I want to spend another 12 months or so in the van, and there’s only room for one person in the van full-time, and she obviously wants to stay in Los Angeles,” he said.

Unglert says Miller-Keyes will probably get her own apartment in the near future.

“It’s just one of the things that we consistently joke about, where she’s like, ‘When I get my own apartment, you’re going to move in with me, right?’ Well..no…I’m probably going to stay in the van as long as I possibly can. So I don’t know,” he said.

It’s a good thing Caelynn Miller-Keyes loves Dean Unglert’s van

According to Unglert, Miller-Keyes actually loves staying in her boyfriend’s van (which is good, because it sounds like he’s going to be living in it for a while).

“She actually loves it,” he told the publication. “It’s funny, we just went to Scottsdale, Arizona for her friend’s wedding and we like booked an Airbnb for like three nights. And after the first night we were like, you know what, let’s just go sleep out in the van instead of sleeping in the Airbnb because like honestly like it’s that comfortable. It’s pretty nice in there and it’s like super romantic. You have like the pixie light thing on the ceiling and it’s like super close quarters and very intimate.”

Unglert continued: “So she’s adjusting really well. She enjoys it. And it’s funny because sometimes I’m like, yeah, like let’s get a hotel or like let’s book a room. And she’s like, no, lets just stay in the van, which I never would have expected, but I’m grateful that she’s so on board with that.”

If you ask Miller-Keyes herself, she’ll also tell you she loves the van life.

“I love the van life. Ok so I’m a pageant girl, people don’t believe me, but I’m Miller and I’m Keyes, there’s two last names, two families involved obviously, as every family, but the Miller side of my family–Dean just met my grandparents today, he met the Miller side–they’re very adventurous. they’re hiking, they live in like airstreams, you know? I’m kind of embracing that side of myself that I never have before and it’s been great,” she said in an interview with Access last month.

And, van aside, Miller-Keyes says she’s incredibly happy in her relationship with Unglert.

“I’m the happiest that I’ve ever been in a relationship honestly. So yeah, it’s great,” she told Access.
