Hayden Byerly: Young Man Who's Dated Amid Gay Rumors

An actor’s job is to portray a character convincingly, but at times, the same conviction makes them the victim of various rumors.

Actor Hayden Byerly broke grounds with his gay character in the show The Fosters and even went on to become the youngest gay couple to share a same-sex kiss.

Various speculations rose regarding his sexuality, but Hayden had a girlfriend to fend the gay rumors and was in a blissful relationship with her.

The success of Hayden as an actor and the influence of his gay character can be fathomed from the fact that he had to come forward to address the gay rumors. During a Twitter chat session, one of his fans asked if he was gay in real life as well. Well, replying to the query, Hayden clarified,

I am straight in real life and Jude is still figuring out if he is gay or not.

Later, Hayden started dating his actress girlfriend, Alyssa Jirrels from December 2015. The couple went on their first trip in San Francisco and even traveled Vancouver together.

Additionally, the couple's pictures from the trip made the affection between them more vivid.

While Hayden's actress girlfriend was far away for shooting a project, all he was left to do is miss her looking at her pictures. 

Moreover, the pair also showed the support for the LGBT community by participating in the pride parade back in June 2016.

Moreover, on the occasion of their one year anniversary, Hayden expressed his love for his former girlfriend with a heartfelt message and even revealed that Alyssa is his first love in December 2016. He stated:

“I don’t know where to start and what all I need to thank you for but I want to say I love you. It’s been a whole year since my life has changed immensely. I’ve gone through a lot and dealt with many things and I don’t know if I’d be here if you didn’t help me. It all started a winter ago in a small little town in San Francisco and it was one of the best weeks of my life. All because I spent everyday doing things with you. You’re my mentor, my best friend and most importantly, my first love. You make me want to live my life for many years and do many things along the way, and I hope I get to do it all with you. Love you shawty,” 

However, their relationship couldn't survive for long, and eventually, the pair went separate ways without making much of a noise. After the breakup, Hayden has neither been spotted with a girl who could be his lady love nor has he acknowledged anyone as his girlfriend.

But it's difficult to believe that a good-looking boy, who flaunted his body going shirtless in the second season of the show, The Forsters, Hayden remains single. But he could be dating secretly, who knows?
