Teen Wolf actor Colton Haynes and his boyfriend Jeff Leatham are engaged! As their beautiful and cute engagement instagram pictures make everyone jealous, let’s see the amazing way it happened.
According to Leatham’s instagram account, they’ve been on vacation in Mexico, spending time in a beachside resort with spectacular ocean views. A few days before the proposal, he reposted a picture of a nice pool with many rose pedals on the surface, with the caption,
“Pre weekend #TeamLeatham Vibes – Sexy Romantic Nights – Destinations – Making memories.”
One night, Leatham brought Haynes onto the beach. It has been beautifully lit with candles and there was a big screen on the sand. You could imagine Haynes’ surprise when Cher’s face pops up and sings “I got you babe” from her 1989 song, It was a short but nice video Cher made for this special occasion, which Leatham shared on instagram afterwards. Right after she sang, Leatham got down on one knee and proposed, then Haynes said yes!
Haynes’ engagement ring is 10 Karats. According to Haynes’ tweet, Jeffrey said to him,
“10 Karats for my perfect 10.”
After all the support and celebratory messages from his fans, Haynes wrote on instagram,
“Overwhelmed by all of the love & support y’all have been sending @jeffleatham & I on our engagement. The fact that so many people love love as much as we do is truly inspiring and I feel so humbled. Who woulda thought that a lil ole kansas boy would meet a country boy from Utah & embark on journey that truly feels like one in the movies? I wish the same for everyone out there. No matter who you love…don’t be afraid to love hard 🙂 #whatmoviesaremadeof #LoveWins”
Haynes only came out last year, after checking into rehab for anxiety and stepping away from his role on both Teen Wolf and Arrow. During an interview with Entertainment Weekly, he said,
“I asked to step away because I cared more about my mental and physical health than my career at the time. I’ve had terminal anxiety my entire life. Physically ill, fainting. I’m 27 years old, and I have an ulcer. I had to step back.”
Haynes’ best friend Ally Maki posted on her instagram after FaceTiming with Haynes about the engagement,
“Colt this is the moment!! Over a decades worth of our sleepovers and made up songs, all night wine sessions talking about love and Adele singalongs all leading up to this very moment. I’m so happy for you my angel. So happy that you found someone who completes you and fills your heart in a way no one else can. Jeff you are family to us now but have been from the start. Thank you for showing him what true love feels like and proving that it exists. You have truly changed his life! So excited to see the journey of where your amazing bond of love takes you both. Love you both so very much!!!”
We’re very happy to hear about Colton Haynes and Jeff Leatham’s engagement, and we sincerely hope this has brought some peace in Haynes’ life as he continues to deal with terminal anxiety. We’ll be waiting for those super cute wedding pictures!
