“I wasn’t in a very good place at the time & we lived in different places so we both decided not to meet (but we did do a little bit of internet stalking and I loved what I saw :)…
“Flash to yrs later when we happened to randomly run into eachother at the airport lounge in Paris where Jeff hit me with his bag & said “Hey punk…aren’t you Colton?” & after 10 seconds of literal love at first mtg…I responded “Hi Jeff” and couldn’t find words to say cause I was dumbstruck.
“So after he physically accosted me lol he then carried my bags to the plane where we sat just 3 rows away from each other.
“After passing post it notes back and forth & sending Champagne love letters…Jeff asked me to come cuddle with him on the plane & from that day on…my life has forever been changed.
“There aren’t words to express how kind, loving, beautiful, & talented this man is & im so lucky to get to spend not just his birthday with him…but also life with him.
“Ur my rock. I love you. Happy Birthday boo bah.”
Leatham, a celebrity florist, proposed to Haynes on the beach at the Las Ventanas al Paraiso in Los Cabos, Mexico.

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.”
