If you heard a loud wailing sound this morning, that was the collective heartbreak from fans that their beloved Colton Haynes is off the market. The 28-year-old Arrow actor announced his engagement to celebrity floral designer Jeff Leatham.
Haynes, who officially came out as gay in an interview with Entertainment Weekly in May 2016, first confirmed his relationship with Leatham on Valentine’s Day. They made their public debut as a couple at an Oscars after party just weeks ago.
The proposal took place while the two were on vacation at the Las Ventanas al Paraiso resort in Los Cabos, Mexico. Leatham went all out to pop the question on a candlelit beach. Not only were there fireworks and an outdoor screen to watch a movie involved, but Jeff enlisted the assistance of one of his A-list clients. Cher popped up on the screen to recite “I got you babe” before Leatham proposed.
Check out pics from their Instagram accounts below, along with Haynes showing off his engagement ring to his BFF Ally Maki.
