Colton Underwood spoke his truth for the first time this morning on Good Morning America. In an interview with Robin Roberts, Colton said “This year’s been a lot for a lot of people and it’s probably made a lot of people look at themselves in the year and figure out who they are,” he shared. “I’ve ran from myself for a long time, I’ve hated myself for a long time. I’m gay. I came to terms with that earlier this year. I’ve been processing that. … I’m the happiest and healthiest I’ve ever been in my life. That means the world to me.”

Colton was fighting for the love of Becca on Season 14 of The Bachelorette, but later found love with Cassie Randolph on Season 23 of The Bachelor. They split a year later.
