Actor Jonathan Bennett ugly-cries through wedding proposal

“Mean Girls” star Jonathan Bennett, who famously played the date-oblivious jock Aaron Samuels in the 2004 comedy, is engaged to boyfriend Jaymes Vaughan.

Vaughan surprised the “Dancing With the Stars” alum with a song proposal over the holiday weekend. He pulled it off with a classic dupe: Telling Bennett that they would be taking Christmas-card photos with his family, but instead popped the question as their romantic tune played.

“My sister shouted for me to come outside ‘real quick’ and my F.O.M.O. kicked in so I ran outside,” Bennett told People, which published the proposal footage Monday. “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.”

Vaughan, the TV host of “Celebrity Page,” praised his partner, got down on one knee then popped the question — and Bennet ugly-cried the whole way through, screaming with tears in his eyes as confetti swirled around them. The two exchanged rings custom-made by Kay Jewelers, whom Vaughan reached out to because the company has been “very supportive of the LGBTQ+ community” over the years, he told People.

Vaughan wrote the sweet love song about their relationship while Bennett was in Canada for six weeks filming the groundbreaking new Hallmark Channel film “The Christmas House,” the network’s first holiday film to star a gay couple.

“It’s hard to describe what it feels like to have a song written about you that is so specific and that reassures all your insecurities. It was the best song I’ve ever heard,” Bennett said.

The two met on the set of Vaughan’s show and told the mag that they’re still figuring out how their wedding will reflect their personalities. Vaughan wants a “classic, timeless” affair, while Bennett said he envisions something much more spectacular, “something between when Elphaba flies in the musical ‘Wicked’ and the finale number of ‘The Greatest Showman.’”

Sana married Anas in an intimate wedding and shared mesmerising picture in a red bridal lehenga. She wrote, “Loved each other for the sake of Allah. Married each other for the sake of Allah. May Allah keep us united in this Duniya. And reunite us in jannah. @anas_sayied.”

Last month, she announced that she is quitting showbiz, citing she has resolved to serve humanity. She has captioned her note as, “My happiest moment. May Allah help me n guide me in this journey. Aap sab mujhe dua Mai Shamil rakhe.” Her note reads, “Isn’t it a part of his/her duty to spend his/her life in the service of those who are needy and helpless? Shouldn’t a person think that he/she could die at any moment? And what will happen to him after he/she is no more? I have been searching for answers to these two questions for a long period of time, especially the second question as to what will happen to me after my death?”

Actor Alia Bhatt starts a children’s clothing brand Ed-a-Mamma

Indian film actor Alia Bhatt launched her own conscious clothing apparel brand for children, Ed-a-Mamma, in October 2020. The brand caters to children aged two to 14. A completely homegrown brand, Ed-a-Mamma is currently available on the ecommerce platform Firstcry, and has sold 70 percent of its first season’s collection in six weeks of launch. The startup is self-funded and is founded by Alia.

Alia Bhatt said, ‘This is a time of great uncertainty for the whole world. The universe is sending us a message: that if we mess with nature, there is a price we all have to pay. If there is a way when we can coexist with nature, include a way to care for nature in everything we do, it would go a long, long way. I’ve tried doing this with a universe of products for children.”

“Every detail does its bit for mother nature. Be it non-synthetic garments, buttons that don’t use plastic, seed bombs that help you grow a garden. Why children’s products? To catch them young and create a love for nature at an early age,” she added.

The press statement added that Ed-a-Mamma currently has three collections — Veggie Squad, Friends of the Ocean, and Candyland, with apparel for little girls and boys ranging from tops, tees and shirts, skirts, dresses, jumpsuits, and bottoms.

The products are all environmentally friendly and are made of natural fibres. The buttons and trims too are plastic free. Ed-a-Mamma also makes use of leftover fabric to make hair ties and potlis. The statement added that Ed-a-Mamma is pegged on storytelling and engaging with children at multiple levels.

It seeks to create conversation with its core target audience, inculcate good habits, and encourage children to adopt environment first practices, kindness towards animals, and make better choices.

Apart from Ed-a-Mamma, Alia previously also started Coexist, an online platform that highlights ecological and animal welfare issues. She had also started Mi Wardrobe is Su Wardrobe (MiSu), a closet sharing initiative, roping in industry friends and colleagues to expand the scope of conversation around conservation.
