While some celebrities couldn’t wait for Valentine’s Day to be over, there’s one who definitely wished February 14 would never end. There have been a lot of rumors about Colton Haynes‘s love life ever since he officially came out as gay last May, but the former Teen Wolf star finally confirmed that he does, in fact, have a new boyfriend.
The 28-year-old actor did what most people who are head-over-heels for someone do on the holiday all about love — post a gushy, super-romantic picture on social media!
The Arrow star adorably captioned the photo, “The most special day of my life. Thank you @jeffleatham. We were actually in the clouds…speechless. Happy Valentine’s Day to all of you. #LoveWins Never be afraid to love harder.”
So, who is this Jeff Leatham that stole Colton’s heart? He’s the 46-year-old (if our calculations are correct) artistic director of the Four Seasons Hotel’s floral/design studio, and is basically the man who turns every celebrity’s event into a floral wonderland. Jeff also posted a tribute to his bae on V-Day, but made things a little more subtle.
“Valentine’s – Real Life – Love – Celebrate Love,” he wrote.
You know what they say — age is just a number! And Colton and Jeff definitely seem happy and super in love. Congratulations to the happy, now-public couple!
Colton’s been rumored to be dating quite a few stars throughout his career in Hollywood:
Not much is known about Colton's relationship with model/actress Electra Avellan, but we do know it happened in 2007. The pair hit a few red carpets together back in the day, and proved that they remained friends as they were seen together again in 2011.
Ah, the Zachary Quinto mystery! There have been multiple rumors that Colton actually dated Zachary for a short period of time, raising questions about his sexual preference. As of now, those rumors remain just that.
And speaking of rumors, Colton's close relationship with his former Teen Wolf co-star fueled TONS of 'em! He and Holland are undeniably cute together, but it looks like this duo only ever remained besties.
As much as we'd LOVE for these two to date, when the dating rumors picked up back in 2012, Lucy confirmed multiple times that they're just friends. She said, "I've known him from my Privileged days...Although I would be very lucky to have him on my arm! We're just friends."
Shortly after Lucy & Colton were seen out together, which fueled those dating rumors, he was seen out with ANOTHER actress. The pair was seen on multiple dates, but there's no official word on what their status was.
Are you sick of the dating rumors yet? When Colton and AnnaSophia sat next to each other NYFW, people immediately wondering if that was a sign of a budding romance. It turns out the pair didn't choose their seating arrangement, however, and just remain friends.

Even if these Arrow co-stars aren't dating IRL we're actually OB-SESSED with them! From adorable Instagram pics to flirty tweets, Emily and Colton make for the perfect couple...even if it's not legit.
Some people argue that Willa and Colton are actually the co-stars who are romantically involved IRL, but the jury's still out.
