“I met you just after you’d moved to LA, and I was fresh out of college. You were working at a 24-hour diner and I was an assistant.
“You were hesitant to be in a relationship because you were pursing you’re dream. And I said “Keep pursing it; and I’ll keep pursuing you.” ☁️ And you did. And I did. Now we’ve been together for nine years, and a year from today we’ll be married. I love you, and I’m so excited for the next nine years together! Happy anniversary, @garrettclayton1, my love, my best friend, my heart!”
Clayton, originally from Michigan, saw his acting career begin to pick up in 2010 with small parts in Days Of Our Lives and Shake It Up.
In 2013, he starred in Disney’s Teen Beach Movie, and opposite James Franco and Christian Slater in King Cobra in 2016, playing porn star Brent Corrigan. He’s currently a regular performer in the Brolesque show at the Rockwell Table & Stage restaurant in Los Angeles.
Clayton came out as gay in an Instagram posting in 2018 in which he revealed he’d been dating another man – Knight – for several years.
Knight, who according to social media is a Los Angeles-based screenwriter, proposed to Clayton during a trip to Iceland in 2018.
