By Emmy Griffiths

Arrow star Colton Haynes has announced his engagement to his partner, Jeff Leatham! The actor shared a photo of himself kissing his artistic director partner, simply writing: "I SAID YES!" accompanied by an engagement ring emoji. Jeff proposed to Colton with a little help from Cher, who recorded a video singing a line from I Got You Babe. He shared the clip of Cher on his Instagram account, writing: "Thank you @cher and @pauletteakapauly for helping making my Proposal Evening Epic - I got you Babe never sounded so good right before @coltonlhaynes said YES!!! So appreciative and much love."

The happy couple went public with their relationship back in February after Colton shared a snap of them together, writing: "It’s not every day that someone comes into your life & makes you want to be a better man. I feel so blessed to be by your side @jeffleatham." Shortly before Jeff proposed, Colton also shared a candid snap of himself smiling, and wrote: "I can't put into words how truly happy I am right now. So full of love."

Colton confirmed that he was gay back in May 2016. Chatting to Entertainment Weekly, he said: "People want you to be that GQ image that you put out, but people don’t realize what it’s like to act 24 hours a day. I’d go home and I was still acting. People who are so judgmental about those who are gay or different don’t realise that acting 24 hours a day is the most exhausting thing in the world… I didn't feel like I owed anyone anything. I think in due time, everyone has to make those decisions when they're ready, and I wasn't yet. But I felt like I was letting people down by not coming forward with the rest of what I should have said."
