Colton Haynes is diving into family life head first: The Arrow actor recently shared that he was engaged to boyfriend Jeff Leatham.
And this weekend, he changed his Instagram bio to read “‘Uncle. Soon to be father. Traveler. Actor. Goof.” He also posted a photo in a swimming pool with the caption, “Covering that layer of pregnancy while I can @jeffleatham lol!”
Haynes has reportedly been dating Leatham, a Hollywood florist, for only a month—so marriage and fatherhood seem kind of fast. But when it’s right, it’s right. And Haynes has already proved an expert gunkle to his gay brother’s kids.
Leatham proposed last week on the beach in Los Cabos, Mexico, getting Cher to record a video message that played before he got down on one knee. Haynes called the romantic moment, “What movies are made of.”
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 has been equally open about his battle with panic attacks and extreme anxiety:
“I’ve quit jobs because of anxiety, flaked on social events, family gatherings, birthdays, important movie/work tests,” he shared in 2015. “It’s a serious problem… It’s not a case of ’being dramatic.’ It’s a life-long struggle…. Anxiety has caused me to be extremely agoraphobic and live in constant fear of leaving my house at times.”
On the professional front, Haynes will next be seen in Rough Night, co-starring Scarlett Johansson, Kate McKinnon and Zoe Kravitz.
