Colton Haynes Is Engaged!
‘Arrow’ actor Colton Haynes is engaged to celebrity florist Jeff Leatham.
The 28-year-old actor first revealed his romance with celebrity florist Jeff Leatham last month and took to Instagram over the weekend to share that Jeff had proposed.
Colton posted a picture of them kissing, with fireworks in the background, and wrote: “I SAID YES!!! @jeffleatham.”
Jeff reposted the picture and wrote: “HE SAID YES !!! #FireworksFlowersCher.”
Jeff popped the question during their romantic getaway to the Las Ventanas al Paraiso resort in Cabo, Mexico.
Meanwhile, Colton recently gushed about how “blessed” he feels to have found love with Jeff and said the florist makes him want to be a “better man”.
He wrote on Instagram: “It’s not every day that someone comes into your life & makes you want to be a better man. I feel so blessed to be by your side @jeffleatham #WhatMoviesAreMadeOf (sic)”
And on Valentine’s Day Colton shared a photo of himself and Jeff standing on a rooftop within a heart made of roses and a number of candles.
He wrote alongside the post: “The most special day of my life. Thank you @jeffleatham . We were actually in the clouds…speechless. Happy Valentine’s Day to all of you. #LoveWins Never be afraid to love harder. (sic)”
The ‘Arrow’ actor previously revealed he had struggled with mental health issues before coming out as gay last year.
In a diary excerpt from November 2014 which he shared with Paper magazine, he wrote: “I honestly wake up after five hours of sleep wide-awake. It’s probably from the bottle of wine I drank before I finally fell asleep/passed out or the amount of pills I’d had. I read up on why I’m experiencing numbness and lack of circulation in my hands and feet and it’s due to the stimulants I’ve been taking for quite some time now…
“I’m so closed off to the world that I can’t even get up enough courage to go in public. I’m afraid of people and have become agoraphobic…
“To the public eye, my possibilities are endless, but in my mind, I’m fading away and battling to hide the pain and emotion that has plagued me my entire life. I’ve cheated, lied and finally owned up to it…I am lonely. This is my fault, though. I don’t want to let anyone in. People don’t understand the things you give up when you step into the limelight. No one really wants to get to know you.”
But he shared another entry from November 2016, revealing he was the happiest he’d ever been after “taking control” of his life by seeking help and speaking out.
