Colton Haynes Is Pregnant, Coated In Glitter

"I'm not going to conform to what people think is normal."

To celebrate reaching four million followers on his Instagram account, Arrow heartthrob Colton Haynes treated his fans to a shocking image of himself fully pregnant.

The black and white photo is subdued and slightly blurred. In it, Haynes cradles his baby bump while his eyes appear wistfully transfixed on a point just outside the frame. It’s an odd image, but one that feels appropriate for Haynes, whose quirky style has seen him create a bevy of off-kilter art with photographer and collaborator Tyler Shields.

In a heartfelt caption accompanying this particular photograph, the star thanks his fans for their support and encourages them to embrace the weird and strange within themselves.

“I want to take a moment to express my gratitude & love to all of you who’ve continued to support me,” he starts.

“I know I can be odd & come off a bit weird sometimes but honestly…my career & life didn’t actually start flourishing until the day I decided to listen to my own instincts and do what I want to do/be myself and not mask that.”

He continues, “I’m not going to conform to what people think is normal…and neither should any of you. That’s so freakin boring haha. Be weird. Be yourself cause at the end of the day…that’s honestly all that matters. Let people see the real, imperfect, flawed, quirky, weird, beautiful, & magical person that you are. Sending love to all of you :)”

The day after posting the above shot, Haynes posted a photo of himself covered in glitter alongside Shields, whom he praised in a short and sweet message.

“This guy never ceases to amaze me. We’ve created some insane photos over the past 7 yrs @thetylershields …stoked for what’s to come!”

And honestly, so are we.
