Colton Haynes’ wedding is rapidly approaching and he can hardly wait to walk down the aisle with his fiancé, Jeff Leatham.
“We’re getting married in literally two and a half weeks,” the American Horror Story: Cult star, 29, exclusively told Us Weekly at the five-year anniversary party for Jesse Tyler Ferguson’s Tie the Knot collection at NeueHouse in Hollywood on Thursday, October 12. “It’s incredible. We’re so excited. We’re very nervous. Hoping he’s not going to Runaway Bride on me!”
As for the one thing Haynes and Leatham, 46, are looking forward to the most? “Starting a family,” the actor revealed. “That’s the goal, I think. My great friend Cheyenne [Jackson], who I was on Horror Story with, [he and husband Jason Landau] have two beautiful kids who just turned 1. We’re kind of modeling everything after them.”
In the meantime, the happy couple, who got engaged in May, are working on the finishing touches for their upcoming nuptials. “If there was a theme, it would be like Met Gala,” Haynes told Us. “We want people to bring the drama — Philip Treacy hats and gowns, and we want women to wear white gowns.”
Earlier this week, the Teen Wolf alum opened up about his decades-long battle with depression and anxiety on Instagram in honor of World Mental Health Day. Through it all, he has turned to his fiancé. “He’s the most supportive person ever,” Haynes gushed to Us of the celebrity floral designer. “He’s so supportive.”
Last night Colton attended an event with his fiancee and American Horror Story co-star Cheyenne Jackson. I’ve added 9 HQ photos thus far to the gallery.

Colton Haynes couldn’t have said it better — it was great that ‘American Horror Story’ producers cut out a shooting scene in the wake of the Vegas massacre.
We got the ‘AHS: Cult’ star at LAX where we asked him about Tuesday’s episode that was supposed to include heavy gun violence in the opening scene. The mass shooting scene, however, was not broadcasted on TV.
The gory scene was still available on FX’s on-demand feature. Nonetheless, producers made the point for the mass audience … and Colton says the decision was spot on.
Wow, let’s talk about the newest episode of American Horror Story: Cult. That was an amazing episode but sadly not much Colton in this episode but we did get a sex scene with him and Billy Enicher (Harrison) character. Reading some of the tumblr responses actually made me laugh. Because of the shooting in the episode, they have edited the epiosde and I’ve added the unedited episode of last nights.

Colton Haynes is opening up about his struggle with depression and anxiety.
The 29-year-old Arrow star took to Instagram on Tuesday to share a candid post about his decades-long battle with the mental health disorders, which he has struggled with since childhood, in honor of World Mental Health Day.
“Today is #WorldMentalHealthDay. This is a photo I took of myself about a month ago when I had reached a point where I had no idea what to do,” he began the post, which accompanied a selfie of the actor. “I had been in bed crying/paralyzed for 3 wks with no explanation. My personal life & career were at an all time high.”
Haynes, who got engaged to fiancé Jeff Leatham in March, continued his post by imploring his fans to “seek help” during their own “darkest moments” in life.
“I’ve talked about this before but I can’t stress enough how important it is to seek help when your feeling down or in your darkest moments. I’ve struggled with Anxiety & Depression since I was in the 5th grade & it’s not something that should go untreated or uncared for,” he continued.
“I know a lot of people don’t understand mental illness & pass it off as ppl being dramatic…but it’s a chemical Imbalance that no one wants to struggle through,” Haynes wrote before admitting: “It’s not easy.”
He concluded his post by encouraging his followers to help those who need a listening and loving ear.
“So let’s all take a second to reach out to those in need of help & those who just need someone to talk to or some encouragement,” he wrote. “A little love goes a long way. My heart is with my fellow survivors & ppl struggling through this disease…you aren’t alone. ❤️❤️❤️.”
In December, the former Teen Wolf star — who publicly came out as gay in early 2016 — opened up to Paper in a first-person piece dated Nov. 2, 2014 about suffering from mental health issues and how he was able to finally move forward.
“I honestly wake up after five hours of sleep wide-awake. It’s probably from the bottle of wine I drank before I finally fell asleep/passed out or the amount of pills I’d had,” Haynes shared from 2014. “I read up on why I’m experiencing numbness and lack of circulation in my hands and feet and it’s due to the stimulants I’ve been taking for quite some time now.”
“What I don’t realize is that I will stay in the same place sitting down for five hours and have no idea ’cause I’m so focused, but with nothing t to do, nothing to create, I’m a vampire. A shell. Wishing I was the old Colton,” continued Haynes. “The person who used to love going out and talking to my family/friends. Now I’m so closed off to the world that I can’t even get up enough courage to go in public. I’m afraid of people and have become agoraphobic.”
“I used to look forward to working out and working on my physical appearance to build up the idea of what people think I am,” he wrote. “I am not my cover. I am so full of emotion and love and I wish I was able to express that again.”
Sharing another first-person piece dated Nov. 12, 2016, Haynes showed how far he’s come in becoming a happier, healthier person.
“I’m finally realizing is that I can’t and wouldn’t want to go back to that headspace ever again. So clouded and unsure about myself, my life, my privacy, my mental health. I’m finally in a position where I can say I’m the happiest I’ve ever been,” he wrote. “I’ve accomplished so much with so little and my smile is finally not forced. I’ve taken control of my own life for the first time … I’m finally free.”
