People are going wild for Colton Haynes’ wedding proposal

March 13, 2017

Colton Haynes has made the cutest wedding proposal ever.

The Arrow star revealed his special news in a pretty amazing Instagram post for Valentine’s.

It turns out Cher was in on the action, with a video playing before Colton’s boyfriend, Jeff Leatham, poppd the question.

Leatham, a celebrity florist, proposed to Haynes on the beach at the Las Ventanas al Paraiso in Los Cabos, Mexico Saturday night.

A fireworks display set to Bruno Marrs Marry You then played out.

As proposals go, this one is definitely in the #winning category.

In a statement to E! News, Haynes said: “I’m so blessed and happy for the future and my life together with Jeff.”

In the video, Cher says: “So, I got you babe!” before asking them to take the moment.

“Alright, this is for you, you know what it is, you know what you’re supposed to do now and this is gonna be the best thing ever and you have to call me to tell me how it worked out, alright!”

The star’s manager explained the proposal, saying: “Jeff’s marriage proposal to Colton was incredible, starting with a personalized video message from Cher singing their favorite song ‘I Got You Babe’, followed by video messages from their family members and close friends — including Melanie Griffith, Serena Williams, Ally Maki, and many more.

“After Colton said yes, the proposal continued with a fireworks display set to Bruno Mars’ Marry You as the couple danced in tears.”

Haynes came out as gay last May.

He told EW: “It was a complete shock. I wasn’t ready to be back in the headlines… I should have made a comment or a statement, but I just wasn’t ready.

“I didn’t feel like I owed anyone anything. I think in due time, everyone has to make those decisions when they’re ready, and I wasn’t yet.

“But I felt like I was letting people down by not coming forward with the rest of what I should have said.”

He fought back tears as he told his story in full, accepting an award from the Human Rights Campaign.
