‘BIP’: Are Caelynn Miller-Keyes and Dean Unglert Still Together?
Caelynn Miller-Keyes and Dean Unglert gave Bachelor Nation all the feels during Bachelor in Paradise Season 6. Early on, fans saw sparks between the contestants. But Unglert suddenly decided to leave, pushing Miller-Keyes into the arms of Connor Saeli — at least for a little while. Merely a week after their breakup, Unglert returned to Mexico and asked Miller-Keyes for another chance. And of course, the former Miss North Carolina accepted and the two rode off into the sunset. But are Miller-Keyes and Unglert still together now, months after Bachelor in Paradise ended? It looks like Instagram is a good place to start this investigation.
Dean Unglert and Caelynn Miller-Keyes are still dating after ‘Bachelor in Paradise’
One quick glance at the Instagram profiles of Miller-Keyes (@caelynnmillerkeyes) and Unglert (@deanie_babies) will tell you the Bachelor in Paradise couple is still together. And it seems like both parties are just as smitten as they were over the summer.
Then on a recent trip to St. Lucia, Miller-Keyes thanked her boyfriend for accompanying her on their travels — and for being her photographer.
“Thanks for traveling the world with me @deanie_babies (and for being my photographer everywhere we go,” Miller-Keyes wrote on Dec. 18.
When will Caelynn Miller-Keyes and Dean Unglert get married?
On Nov. 20, Miller-Keyes teased Bachelor Nation with the possibility of marrying Unglert — but in the far future.
“I always joke with him about us getting married,” Miller-Keyes told Us Weekly. “Maybe that’s in our future, but it would be way down our future. We’ve only been together for like 6 months.”
But in an interview with Hollywood Life during the iHeartRadio Jingle Ball in Los Angeles on Dec. 6, Miller-Keyes admitted she isn’t sure if Unglert is “The One.”
“I sure hope I’m done dating,” she said. “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?”
Meanwhile, when speaking with Us Weekly at Jingle Ball, Unglert reiterated the idea that marriage with Miller-Keyes won’t be happening anytime soon.
“We’re obviously not on engagement-level yet. It’s gonna take a little bit of time,” Unglert said. “She does joke around about us getting married all the time, and I always say, ‘Sorry, it’s not going to happen.’”
He continued: “I don’t know, I’m super unconventional and she obviously is a little more conventional. We joke around about it. Just try to keep expectations to a minimum, you know? Like I said on the show, underpromise, overdeliver.”
Do Caelynn Miller-Keyes and Dean Unglert have plans to move in together?
Although Miller-Keyes and Unglert have no plans to get married anytime soon, it’s possible the BIP couple might consider moving in together. However, it’ll take some time. Back in October, Unglert shared he doesn’t plan to move in with Miller-Keyes just yet. The 26-year-old told Hollywood Life:
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. She’s going to probably get her own apartment. 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.”
Then at Jingle Ball in December, Miller-Keyes revealed moving in together was still on the table for discussion down the line.
“We’re at such a good place right now,” Miller-Keyes told People. “We’ll move in together when the time is right, but I don’t want to rush anything and I don’t want it to be contingent on a lease ending or something like that. But maybe. Maybe next year. Maybe in 2 years. Who knows.”
Regardless, it seems both Unglert and Keyes are simply enjoying their time together. And quite frankly, that’s totally fine — especially since Bachelor Nation gets to marvel over all of their adventures together.
“We understand that with the Bachelor franchise, you kind of get put in a pressure cooker with your relationship and we’re just traveling together, exploring each other, and having fun and doing what we’re doing,” Unglert said.
