Who is Jack Vidgen Boyfriend?
On 29 May 2017, Vidgen revealed that he was in love and found himself a boyfriend. The singer usually doesn’t talk about his personal life, but he took to his Instagram account to share the news of his boyfriend. The Instagram stories showed the image of himself and his best friend, Callen McCall. Along with the picture, Vidgen wrote:
‘LUCKY I’M IN LOVE WITH MY BEST FRIEND ’
Luckily for Vidgen, his mother is too supportive of him. His mother, Rachel Hayton, took to Facebook to address the news about him being ‘gay.’ She even praised her son’s relationship on a Facebook page.
“YES, HE’S IN LOVE, AND I AM SO VERY HAPPY FOR HIM AND PROUD OF HIM.”
However, Vidgen hasn’t talked about his relationship with McCall lately. Nor he has posted a single picture of his boyfriend on social accounts. His nature of maintaining low-key affair has left fans to speculate as to whether he has already split with McCall or he is trying to keep his boyfriend away from the radar.
