Colton Haynes Appears Pregnant in New Photo Shoot, Here’s Why

Colton Haynes May Have Just Come Out as Gay in a Tumblr Post
Did Colton Haynes just come out in the coyest way possible?

You can always count on this guy to challenge your expectations!

Striking actor and model Colton Haynes has reason to celebrate today. He hit four million followers on Instagram and posted a photo to celebrate. But it isn’t just another shirtless pic (although it is shirtless).

In the photo, the 27-year-old appears, well, pregnant. He’s delicately holding his swelling belly like countless women do during the nine-month process. The photo was shot by photographer Tyler Shields, who tends to add an adventurous and striking edge to his portraits.

So happy to make more art with @thetylershields . Today I hit 4 Million followers on Instagram. I want to take a moment to express my gratitude & love to all of you who’ve continued to support me. I know I can be odd & come off a bit weird sometimes but honestly…my career & life didn’t actually start flourishing until the day I decided to listen to my own instincts and do what I want to do/be myself and not mask that. I’m not going to conform to what people think is normal…and neither should any of you. That’s so freakin boring haha. Be weird. Be yourself cause at the end of the day…that’s honestly all that matters. Let people see the real, imperfect, flawed, quirky, weird, beautiful, & magical person that you are. Sending love to all of you :)

So, why the perplexing look on such a masculine celeb? That right there might be the essence of Colton’s public persona: ignoring definitions and barriers and social stigmas that tend to halt conversations rather than ignite them.

“I know I can be odd & come off a bit weird sometimes,” Haynes captioned the image. “But honestly…my career & life didn’t actually start flourishing until the day I decided to listen to my own instincts and do what I want to do/be myself and not mask that. I’m not going to conform to what people think is normal…and neither should any of you. That’s so freakin boring haha. Be weird.

And if that doesn’t bring a smile to your face, then this silly video featuring Colton dancing with Arrow’s Emily Bett Rickards to “Shake It Off” should do the trick!
