Not everyone can say 2020 has been a bad year. Mean Girls star Jonathan Bennett has had a hit movie, The Christmas House, portraying one half of Hallmark’s first LGBTQ lead couple. Now, he has some great personal news to share. He is now engaged! What are the details that made him “ugly-cry”?
Jonathan Bennett Is Engaged!
According to an exclusive with People, Jonathan Bennett is engaged to his boyfriend Jaymes Vaughn. According to a the Hallmark star, Vaughn got down on one knee and he proposed.
How did he do it? Jaymes Vaughn wrote and sang a song to his surprised love. When Jonathan was in Canada filming Hallmark’s The Christmas House, Vaughn was home. He used his time well, working with his producer friend, Tanzer, writing and perfecting the lyrics.
At the core, the idea of a personalized song was Jonathan’s idea. He always looked for the perfect song to represent their love. Unfortunately, he never found the perfect song. Subsequently, Jaymes wrote an original song. Now, the lyrics are perfect. Next, is the setting.
Under the guise of taking photos for Christmas cards, Jaymes had family visit, as well as a photographer to capture the proposal. The final result was very moving. Jonathan went into ugly cry mode. Yet, first, he started screaming. That began when Jaymes first went down on his knee.
But, the rest was a total blur. “It’s hard for me to really remember the rest because I think my body just decided to black out and ugly-cry. All I was doing was ugly-crying.”
Now, we don’t know how this cry compared to when Jonathan met President-elect, Joe Biden. According to Jaymes Vaughn’s Instagram, “First time we met Joe, Jonathan started crying because his Dad died from the same brain cancer Joe’s son died from. Joe, without pause, pulled him in, held him close and just kept him right there, talking to him until he was able to calm down.”
Jaymes better make sure there are enough tissues for the wedding itself!
