Caelynn Miller-Keyes and Dean Unglert are nearing the time to say goodbye to California. Earlier this year, the Bachelor Nation couple revealed they are moving to Las Vegas. An update on their Instagram revealed that the move is just six weeks away.
“We bought a house,” Miller-Keyes said in a January vlog on her YouTube page. “Next week or the week after we’re going to Vegas to pick out the cabinets, the countertops, the carpet, the flooring.”
She explained the couple chose to buy a house in “Sin City” because of its proximity to her family.
“It’s close to my grandparents, it’s close to my uncle,” revealed the former contestant on Colton Underwood’s season of The Bachelor. “We’re super excited to actually own a home, create this beautiful home in Vegas. We both love Vegas, it’s my favorite place to be. It’s just a great escape – near Red Rocks, so we’re in the mountains, there’s a lot of rock climbing, a lot of hiking. We’re very excited.”
Unglert famously lived out of his van when the couple met on season six of Bachelor in Paradise. Now, the couple lives together but still takes excursions in the van. Accompanying them on their adventures is their dog, Pappy.
Miller-Keyes revealed, “Pappy’s excited for the park next door,” while providing a glimpse at their residence on her Instagram Story.
The couple’s home will be in the Summerlin community revealed Rachel Lindsay’s former top-four contender.
“We know it’s an older community, which I think is good,” Unglert revealed on his Help! I Suck at Dating podcast. “We’re not trying to be in the sinning part of the city, but yeah we’re excited.”
The Couple Said They Will Get Married ‘At Some Point’
Buying a house together is quite the commitment, but it has not stopped fans from wondering if and when Unglert and Miller-Keyes plan to tie the knot.
They addressed the question in a January question and answer video on her YouTube channel, revealing they would likely not get married before 2023.
When Unglert initially commented, “If we have kids, probably will get married, I guess, but we’re not going to have kids. So, we’re not going to get married,” Miller-Keyes threw her hands in the air. She eventually interjected with a laugh, “But also, we’ll get married at some point.”
The former pageant queen continued, “I want to have a small wedding, like just our family in Italy or Guatemala or something… and then come back to LA and have a huge party with all of our friends.”
Unglert Plans to Change His Name Around the Time They Move Into Their House
The topic of marriage soon gave way to the conversation of whether they would share a surname. Unglert revealed that in April 2021, around the time they are expected to move into their new home, he plans on changing his last name to his mother’s maiden name – Bell.
“Caelynn, I have told her if she wants to change her last name to my last name, that’s great,” revealed the Bachelor Winter Games alum. “She’s got a freaking crazy last name, Miller-Keyes, like too many last names first and foremost.”
He continued, “Secondly, she doesn’t have a great relationship with her birth father so it’s like why would you have his last name in yours anyways. That’s part of the reason why I would change mine to Bell.”
The couple is staying in a rental home until their big move.
