Bennett’s career started with a stretch of appearances as J.R. Chandler on All My Children. From there, other TV and movie appearances filled up his schedule.

These days, though, he makes time for his marriage to Vaughan. “When you’re part of the LGBTQ+ fam, not everything in the wedding space is for you yet,” Vaughan said to People. “The whole purpose of our wedding is to come together and join the two of us together, join our families together, and start a new family.

Jonathan Bennett Wanted Special Wedding

“And all that, as we were going through this process, we realized that our wedding is also more than just about us,” Bennett said. “It’s about the entire community.” For the wedding, Bennett and Vaughan made sure that their friends were involved in everything. YouTube influencer Brian Tyler Cohen was on hand to officiate the marriage.

Vaughan also is in the public eye, too. He’s been a participant on The Amazing Race. But he’s also the host of Celebrity Page.

Before marrying Vaughan, Bennett dated Matt Dallas yet had not fully come out to the public. He also was connected to actresses Elizabeth Hendrickson and Stephanie Pratt.

But these days, Bennett is fully committed to Vaughan. They continue to stay busy with their respective careers.

Bennett played Aaron Samuels in Mean Girls. Back in 2020, he starred in The Christmas House for the Hallmark Channel. It was the first movie from the channel to feature a gay lead. In the same year, Vaughan proposed to Bennett. People asked Bennett about some details about the proposal.

Actor Talks About Writing Special Song

“He wrote me a song!” Bennett said. “We would always hear songs and think, ‘Oh that would be our song if just this part or that part were different,’ so as a result we didn’t have a song that was ‘ours.’”

Vaughan talked about the process of coming up with his proposal song. “So while he was in Canada filming The Christmas House for Hallmark, I took a melody that up until now had only been accompanied by chopsticks on my voice notes, and got together with my friend Tanzer, who happens to be a talented producer and my favorite person to write songs with, and said, ‘Let’s make this magical for Jonathan,’” he said.

Both men stay busy in the Los Angeles area with their work. Bennett is still quite popular while Vaughan entertains viewers on Celebrity Page.
