Demi admits she didn’t know much about Colton before going on the show, but her dad did some research. “My dad approved, and that’s all I needed to hear,” she says. “I usually don’t bring a lot of guys around or anything, so he ensured me that [Colton] would be worth it.”
Going into this process, Demi says she was most afraid of getting her heart broken—though that fear faded away the more she thought about it. “Heartbreak is a part of life, and that’s something you can learn from,” she explains. “I choose to be pretty optimistic.”
It’s unclear what—or who—is in Demi’s future, but she’ll have her family, including her mother, to lean on. “Family is huge for me,” she says. “I think that without your family you don’t have a lot of people that truly have your back. Your family is a very, very strong core that you need to have in life to survive in this world.”
