While appearing on Watch What Happens Live Tuesday, the 28-year-old former Bachelorette contestant opened up his relationship with model Camila Kendra, revealing that the two are "very in love." When first asked by host Andy Cohen how many times he has been in love, Cameron revealed he's fallen hard "twice" before he explained that he and Kendra, 27, also exchanged "I love yous." Cohen, 53, then pressed Cameron for more details about his romance, asking the reality star who was the first to say "I love you" in the relationship. Blushing, Cameron explained the sentiment came from Kendra, who was sitting in the audience, first. "She said 'I love you' and then I came later," he said. "... It was at a moment of pure love, like, it just came out. You know what I mean? It was not the way I expected it, but it was beautiful."

"She was an hour away, we met and that's how it happened." Cameron went on to call the couple's first date "the best date I've ever had." "We went to a restaurant and we sat there, we just talked for hours," he said. "We couldn't even look at the menu, so I just told them, like, 'Bring whatever.' We just talked, hung out. We sat there for four hours, I had a great night." When asked by Cohen if the pair had spent the night together after their date, Cameron said, "No, no! I didn't even kiss her until the fifth date."
