Former Bachelor star Colton Underwood came out as gay to Robin Roberts in a Good Morning America interview that aired this morning.
In the interview, Colton, who is also a former pro football player, was emotional revealing the truths he learned about himself during quarantine.
He said, “obviously this year’s been a lot for a lot of people, and it’s probably made a lot of people look themselves in the mirror and figure out who they are and what they’ve been running from or what they’ve been putting off in their lives. For me, I’ve ran from myself for a long time and I’ve hated myself for a long time, and I’m gay. I came to terms with that that earlier this year and have been processing it,” Underwood told Roberts.
“The next step in all of this was sort of letting people know. I’m still nervous, but it’s been a journey for sure.”
Colton also revealed in the interview that he had suicidal thoughts during his stay in Los Angeles.
"There was a moment in L.A. where I woke up and I didn't think I was going to wake up. I didn't have the intention of waking up and I did. And I think for me that was my wake-up call...this is your life, take back control."
