Mean Girls' Jonathan Bennett Is Engaged to Jaymes Vaughan: Ring Details
That's beyond fetch. Actor Jonathan Bennett of Mean Girls fame is engaged to longtime boyfriend and partner Jaymes Vaughan, the couple announced November 30. The proposal was a family affair and took place over the holiday weekend.
"He wrote me a song!" Bennett told People. "I was told we were going to be taking family Christmas card photos… but then no one would look me in the eye and I was like what is going on? I later found it out it was because they didn't want to spoil what was about to happen."
Bennett's sister then told him to come outside, and there was his boyfriend, holding a sign which read, "We never did finish our song, so I wrote it for you." It registered right then and there that he was experiencing his proposal.
The future spouses worked closely with Kay Jewelers for their rings, which are platinum men's bands that are coated with a brushed satin finish. One side of each band is decorated with diamonds, creating an infinity band. According to the Kay team, the intent behind the one-sided concept is for the couple to flip their rings once they're married.
Vaughan also had an intent before his proposal, and that was to work with Kay. The TV personality noticed the jewelry brand has long been "very supportive of the LGBTQ+ community," according to his interview with People.
Bennett is the star of Hallmark's The Christmas House, which happens to be the first-ever film on the network featuring an LGBTQ+ lead couple. He is best known for playing the role of high school heartthrob Aaron Samuels in the 2004 Tina Fey-written comedy Mean Girls opposite Fey, Rachel McAdams and Lindsay Lohan. Vaughan is a TV personality whose acting credits include Blue Call, Baby Daddy and Chocolate City: Vegas Strip. The couple has been dating since 2017.
