Leatham had a little help with the proposal from the one and only Cher. According to Colton's rep, Jeff began the romantic moment with a video from Cher singing their favourite song. The musical icon said: "So, I got you babe! Alright, this is for you, you know what it is, you know what you're supposed to do now and this is gonna be the best thing ever and you have to call me to tell me how it worked out, alright!" According to Colton's rep, the video was "followed by video messages from their family members and close friends—including Melanie Griffith, Serena Williams, Ally Maki, and many more. They added: "After Colton said yes, the proposal continued with a fireworks display set to Bruno Mars' 'Marry You' as the couple danced in tears."
