He’s also written three books, led a master class at the Dallas Museum of Art and collaborated with international luxury brands.
2.) He’s engaged to Colton Haynes.
“I SAID YES!!! 💍💥❤️ @jeffleatham,” Colton Haynes, 28, captioned his heartwarming announcement post on March 12. The Teen Wolf actor and his now-fiancé, Jeff, supposedly 47, were seen passionately smooching while fireworks exploded in the background.
