The couple and their same-sex relationship
Jonathan Bennett is openly gay. He and Jaymes started dating in 2017. Jaymes is a former Amazing Race contestant. He now hosts the show, Celebrity Page. And now after three years came the proposal from Jaymes. Talking of the time, Jonathan revealed:
“then no one would look me in the eye and I was like, ‘What is going on?’”
Narrating the whole incident, Jonathan continued:
“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.’ That’s when I knew 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.”
Details of the song composition and writing
Jaymes had taken the help of a producer friend to write the tune. This he did when Jonathan was in Canada for six weeks for the shooting of Hallmark Channel’s The Christmas House. Jaymes explained:
“Every single part of the song was personal to Jonathan. Every lyric, even the structure of the melody was designed with how I knew he’d sing it back to me. He has this really cute way of singing things back to me. I just wanted him to feel like the most special person in those three minutes of first hearing the song.”
Marriage plans have not been divulged yet by the two.
We wish the couple a happy future together!
