Caelynn, 24, got the rumor mill churning by posting a sweet Valentine's Day tribute for Dean on February 14. "Life is so much better with you in it. Happy Valentine’s Day," she captioned a photo of the pair embracing in Yosemite National Park. "Get married!" one fan wrote in the comments section of the post. "We already did," Caelynn replied.
While Caelynn could have just been joking, she kept the speculation going by commenting on Dean's Instagram on Sunday, February 16. He posted a photo of the pair with their dog Mirror Lake Loop Trail, and she wrote that their trip was "the best honeymoon ever" in the comments section. On top of it all, Dean has been spotted wearing a ring in his recent Instagram Stories.
In November 2019, Caelynn revealed that she'd already brought up the topic of marriage with Dean. "I always joke with him about us getting married," Caelynn told Us Weekly at the 2nd annual American Influencer Awards in Los Angeles. "Maybe that’s in our future, but it would be way down our future."
Dean and Caelynn fell in love on season 6 of Bachelor in Paradise, but they had a rocky beginning to their romance. Dean left her brokenhearted in Mexico when he decided that he couldn't be in a relationship and abruptly headed home. Regretting his decision, he returned during week 5 and begged her to give him a second chance. “I’m a changed man! I’m not saying it’s going to be easy coming out of this. We’re definitely going to have things to work on — myself, mostly. But I wanted to try those things, and I want it to be with you," he told her on the episode. Caelynn shocked fans by deciding to leave with Dean in the middle of the season.
Caelynn was by Dean's side and lovingly took care of him after he got into a nasty skiing accident in Europe in December 2019.
Dean took to Instagram to thank his lady love for her support as he recovered from his injuries. "Back in the states after an unfortunate turn of events in Europe. It would have been a whole lot worse without my primary caretaker there to change my smelly socks, carry my luggage, and keep me entertained. Thank you for everything you’ve already done and for everything you still unwittingly have to do," he wrote.
