A post shared by Colton Haynes (@coltonlhaynes) on

Haynes’ rep confirms the occasion featured a tailor-made video of Cher gushing:

“So, I got you babe! 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!”

Colton’s rep says the video was “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.”

Here’s that Cher vid, in case you’re curious:

Haynes later posted this message to Instagram:

“Thank you @cher for the beautiful ‘I got you babe’ proposal lead in, you sounded incredible as always ? The most special night of my life @jeffleatham.”

Haynes came out last May, and went public with the relationship on Valentine’s Day.

And that’s all we got.

    God. This is the new DLB and Tom weekly vomit feature now I guess.

    Cher looks great though. She’s around the same age as my mom. I wonder what work she’s had done. It looks good at any rate.

      No one’s forcing you read the articles or to help these types of articles generate revenue for the site by clicking and whining; don’t like the material go to another source; and don’t let the door hit you on the way out we don’t want your stank on it.

    • CaliKyle

      Calm down, oddchild. Some of us prefer ChrisK’s stank over yours.

    • oddchild1

      @CaliKyle who is this “us”; sock puppets talking to themselves?

  • lauraspencer

    For someone who took so long to come out he certainly has wasted no time in using his coming out to market himself and get attention for himself, Jeff and their careers.

    Coming out is great, but when you use it for fame don’t be surprised if the gay community doesn’t believe your sincerity when you talk about how “difficult” it was to come to terms with your sexuality and come out….I’m looking at you Colton….Michael Sam…Tom Daley….Lance Bass, et al.

  • DCguy

    Wow, Former closet cases who attacked people with threats of litigation now marketing his relationship.

    I mean, I’m happy for the guy, but this relationship is coming off as nearly as choreographed as Tom Hiddleston and Taylor Swift

    I feel sorry for the bitter and cynical queens who have their own shortcomings and take them out by running down those doing better than them in their lives. I choose to believe in love and romance because that what makes me believe they will come into my life as they came into Colton & Jeff, Tom & Dustin and all the other happy couples that are regularly badmouthed here.

    • lauraspencer

      Just because someone criticizes those seeking fame doesn’t mean they have shortcomings. My parents have been married 52 years and I want what they have. My best friend, Richard has been with his husband for 12 years and they are adorable. I have been with my partner for over a year now and I am happy and very fortunate.

      Queerty readers aren’t badmouthing “romance”. They are questioning how genuine the romance is when it is used to market their careers. I would say the same thing about Madonna and Jennifer Lopez.

    Ugh. Now we’re going to see and hear about this for months.

    I’m happy for them. But I’m tired of his and other gaylebrities self-promotion, and I’m tired of gay media breathlessley reporting on their every move. This simple announcement of his pending nuptials (which I still don’t understand why needs more than the briefest of mentions) turns into months of self-promotional posts – ring shopping, cake tasting, venue choosing ad nauseum (emphasis on the nauseum).

    And I do take issue with how he’s promoted himself publicly. For years, he essentially left the question of his sexuality unknown. That’s really no one’s business if he chooses not to express that publicly. But he promoted himself endlessly, and often hinted at heterosexuality in who he brought to public events. Then when he comes out publicly (in a very unproud way – “was it a secret?” well yeah, because you kept it a secret), the gay public should suddenly embrace his gay self.

      If you don’t like these articles stop giving them traffic. With every click and every comment this type of article generates revenue; even if a vast majority of the comments are negative. Queerty is a business not a charity; and the same applies to all other gay media; they’re in t for the money and you and your ilk along with the people enjoying the content created makes sure that it keeps coming.

  • Terrycloth

    • Aunt Sharon

      In what universe does a celebrity florist have more money than successful TV actor?

  • Frank

    Jeffery is 46 and Colton is 28

    It’s a little off putting, I will admit. But, as some love to say, it’s not “internalized homophobia”… this is just too much. Because this clearly is not for them and is for everyone else, because if you love someone, you don’t need all of this pomp and circumstance, and you damn sure wouldn’t be putting it on the internet for strangers to “validate” your charmed life. I can’t with this… and you know it’s not gonna last. I wasn’t fooled with Heidi and Seal, and I’m not with these two. If you need to do all of that, it’s not solid.

    • Xzamilloh

      I’m just saying… you don’t Neil Patrick Harris and his man doing all of this nonsense
