American actor Jonathan Bennett is now engaged to his boyfriend Jaymes Vaughan, guys! The two reportedly started dating in 2017.
According to People, Vaughan proposed to Bennett, got down to his knees and sang to the actor the song he composed with a friend while the latter was in Canada filming his Hallmark movie The Christmas House (The Christmas House is Hallmark’s first gay holiday movie, guys, and is said to feature a same-sex kiss so hurry and watch it at the Hallmark Channel. The film premiered on Sunday, November 22).
“I was told we were going to be taking family Christmas card photos and that’s why Jaymes’s photographer friend Eric (Ita) was here along with my photographer nephew Andrew (Herner),” Bennett said to People during an interview with the couple. “But then no one would look me in the eye and I was like what is going on? I later found it out it was because they didn’t want to spoil what was about to happen.”
Bennett added, “My sister shouted for me to come outside ‘real quick’ and my F.O.M.O. kicked in so I ran outside. Then I looked over and saw Jaymes holding a sign that said ‘We never did find our song, so I wrote it for you.'” He continued, “That’s when I knew I was getting proposed to because it was the same type of sign he made when he told me he loved me for the first time. And then I began to ugly-cry the ugliest cry anyone has ever cried.”
