Bachelor star Colton Underwood was very open to finding love on television, but it’s safe to say his family was less comfortable with the idea.
But, despite their concerns, they’re more than ready to welcome a lovely lady into the family!
“They were a little skeptical, but I think they saw how good it was for me coming off of [Paradise], sort of how I reacted and how I felt,” Colton told Us Weekly.
“So they’re so excited right now, and I know my dad and my mom are looking forward to having a new daughter-in-law.”
He continued, “I’m excited for the potential to start my own family and to share the rest of my life with someone!”
And, though Colton’s parents are no longer together, they are both happy in their new marriages.
“They are so happy and in love, in a new part of their life. They’re both remarried,” he shared.
“So it’s so cool to see how they’ve dealt with that adversity and how they moved on, but they still remain friends.”
While it’s no secret the 26-year-old is still a virgin — or at least was before filming this season of The Bachelor — he’s ready to get serious.
“I have a ton of life experience. I’ve had so many unique opportunities and just some great things that have happened in my life, but when I look around and I look back at it, I’m missing someone to share that with,” he said.
“I like to say, I might be 26, but I’m in mid-30s as far as life experience goes.”
Not to mention, he is ready to have kids ASAP!
“I’m definitely ready for kids. I feel like I was born to be a dad. I come from a large family. I’m an older brother – now to a bunch of bonus siblings – and I love that role,” he said.
“I can’t wait to have kids, and sort of be that cool father who is a coach, a mentor and just overall their best friend.”
