Lance Bass Proposes to his Boyfriend
Soon after making an appearance at the MTV Video Music Awards with his former ‘N Sync crew, the ex-boy band member announced he’s engaged to his boyfriend.
“He said YES!! Love this man,” Bass wrote on Instagram on Sep. 1 with a photo showing off an engagement ring on the finger of his new fiance Michael Turchin.
The two started dating in December 2011, and Bass popped the question in New Orleans. The day before Bass posted the photo on Instagram, Turchin expressed his happiness about the engagement on Twitter. “Happiest guy in the world,” he tweeted.
Bass came out in 2006, while dating Amazing Race winner Reichen Lehmkuhl. Before that, the 34-year-old actor and singer had dated actress Danielle Fishel.
“The thing is, I’m not ashamed – that’s the one thing I want to say. I don’t think it’s wrong, I’m not devastated going through this,” he told People magazine when he came out. “I’m more liberated and happy than I’ve been my whole life. I’m just happy.”
