Bachelor Colton Underwood is ready to find a wife!
The new leading man met the 30 women competing for his heart during last night’s premiere episode, and though there was a lot of banter about his virginity, the 26-year-old is ready to get serious.
In fact, he opened up to Entertainment Tonight about why he’s looking forward to being a young dad.
“I’m all in. I want to find a wife, I want to find somebody who I’m going to spend the rest of my life with. I want to find somebody who is going to be a mother to my children,” he said.
“My mom had me when she was 24, so I want to be a young, cool dad. I want to have some fun with my kids growing up.”
Though he still has to get to know all these different women, he already knows that he is looking for someone who is independent.
“Going through a relationship with both Becca and Tia, there was obviously a lot of things that I like from their personalities and I like from our relationship that I want to take and move forward: the confidence that both of the women have, they’re strong independent women,” he said.
“That is something that’s very important to me in finding my wife. So, I would take that, but I needed both of those relationships to sort of move on and figure out exactly what I needed.”
Despite already being on The Bachelorette and Bachelor in Paradise, Colton feels like this time around he’s finally being himself.
“I feel like I’m finally able to like be comfortable in who I am, and for me, going through The Bachelorette and going through Bachelor in Paradise was so needed,” he explained.
“There’s also another side of me that’s sort of this fun-loving, loose, full of energy [guy], and I can’t wait to just be myself and showcase that too.”
Are you excited to get to know Colton better this season? Do you think he will find the future mother of his children?!
