Colton Underwood may not have found love while on starring on "The Bachelor" (and he currently appears to be single) but that's not stopping him from starting a family — a plant family, that is.

The reality star this weekend took to Instagram, which he wiped clean after coming out as gay in April, to share a few snaps with his new children.

"Today I became a plant dad to 10 little divas," Underwood captioned the post. "They all have names, different feeding schedules and need different levels of sun and stuff. Life comes at you quickly, stay ready kids."

In the four snaps, he can be seen posing with his plants, watering them and arranging them.

His recent post comes a few weeks after he clapped back at a fan who asked about his sex life during an Insta Q&A.

"Let me vent for a second," Underwood started. "Questions like this are inappropriate. I understand you might know me from 'The Bachelor', where I shared a lot about my personal life. I have set boundaries, and I'm respecting myself in a way that will lead me to a healthier life."

He added: "I never asked to be labeled as the virgin bachelor and have people feel the security to ask me questions about my sex life. It just happened, and during that time, I thought I had no other choice but to just go with it, or the network would be mad. I know differently now."

In the same session, Underwood also revealed that his Netflix reality show, which will follow him living life as an openly gay man, will debut on the streamer in the fall.
