The Teen Wolf and Arrow actor finally shared his good news.

If you're not familiar with Colton Haynes, let's get you all caught up. 

This is Colton. 

He's a 27 year old actor who has appeared on shows like Teen Wolf and Arrow. In case it wasn't blindingly obvious, Colton is a bit of a...heartthrob. And, when I say 'a bit', I mean I am currently fanning myself just looking at him. 

Up until very recently, Colton didn't really speak about his sexuality. Like some men in Hollywood, Colton preferred to keep his private life all the way on the down low. Well, that just changed. 

Colton gave an interview with Entertainment Weekly where he basically blows the lid off his sexuality in the cutest, most lighthearted way possible 

People who are so judgmental about those who are gay or different don’t realize that acting 24 hours a day is the most exhausting thing in the world [...] It took me so long to get to this point, but I’m doing so good. I’m happier than I’ve ever been, and healthier than I’ve ever been, and that’s what I care about.

Colton says that he has actually been out to friends, family, and his fellow actors for a while now, but that he was advised to downplay his sexuality to further his career.

Well, now he's out and the internet is officially over the moon. 

There are a few ladies who aren't quite as happy for Colton buuuuuut they're not important.
Congratulations, Colton!
