Did Taron Egerton, the star of the upcoming Elton John biopic Rocketman, just come out?
That’s what fans are wondering after he posted a photo on his newly-launched Instagram account.
The post shows an unnamed young man with the simple caption, “Cutie. My boy (heart).”
Now, this could be a ‘bromance’ moment. Or, the Kingsman star might be coming out in the most chill way possible.
Even though the Instagram account is only days old (there’s a total of just five posts), Egerton already has over 100,000 followers on the social media platform.
And for the most part, those fans were supportive of the news.
“He is adorable. But is someone coming out or just bromancing”
“I really hope this is your coming out happy for you”
“Omg my if Taron is gay, my dream finally came true lol”
“the gays have won”
One commenter wrote, “does that mean he’s got a boyfriend now,” and Egerton ‘liked’ the comment.
In another playful exchange, a fan asked Egerton to tag the young man in order to reveal his identity and he responded writing, “Nah, he’s mine and mine only.”
Some folks say the truth has been in front of us for a long time.

We're guessing we'll get a definitive answer sometime, but the bottom line is if Taron is coming out as gay or bisexual, good on him.
And if the post was just a bromance thing, good on Taron for being comfortable in his own skin.
Rocketman is set to hit theaters May 17, 2019. Check out the trailer below.
