(PHOTOS) Burnett told host Ellen DeGeneres she felt "a lot of fear" before coming out in an episode of "Bachelor in Paradise" Season 6 in August. "It was fear of judgment. It was fear of disappointing people in my life, making them uncomfortable," she said. "It was just really hard; it was really scary. But it all worked out in the end." Burnett and her girlfriend, Kristian Haggerty, got engaged during the Season 6 finale, making them the first same-sex couple to appear on the show. Burnett previously said on "Good Morning America" it "means a lot" to be out. "I was just being myself and living my life and loving who I loved," she said. "I just wanted to be honest with who I was and follow wherever my heart led me." Burnett and Haggerty have yet to start wedding planning. Burnett told People this week that she and Haggerty want to take their relationship more slowly. "I don't think we should jump into moving in together," she said. "We already got engaged in such a short amount of time. We need to have time to date and have a steady-paced relationship." RELATED LINK: 'THE BACHELOR' FRANCHISE COUPLES NOW: WHO IS STILL TOGETHER??
