Lance Bass is now engaged to his boyfriend of two years, Michael Turchin, and the ‘N Sync band member shared the happy news with his over 355,300 Twitter followers with a photograph of the newly-engaged couple on Sunday.
“He said YES!! Love this man @michaelturchinart,” Bass captioned the picture of Turchin -- an aspiring actor and an occasional model -- flaunting a black diamond engagement ring.
Turchin had hinted about the engagement with a tweet on Saturday that read, "Happiest guy in the world."
According to an Us Weekly report, the singer proposed to Turchin in New Orleans shortly after ‘N Sync’s VMAs reunion, and he even texted his fiance’s parents to seek their blessings before popping the question.
"They're such a great couple, everyone is so happy for them," a source told Us Weekly about Turchin and Bass, who have been together since December 2011. "Their friends and family are thrilled."
Bass performed with his other ‘N Sync bandmates at the VMAs on Aug. 25 for the first time since the band broke up in 2002, and tweeted his excitement at being able to “perform [with] 'NSYNC as an out entertainer."
The 34-year-old officially came out in July 2006, and said, during an interview with People back then, that he did not want to reveal his sexual orientation when he was part of ‘N Sync as it could have affected their careers.
"I knew that I was in this popular band and I had four other guys' careers in my hand, and I knew that if I ever acted on it or even said (that I was gay), it would overpower everything," Bass told People at the time. "I didn't know: Could that be the end of NSYNC? So I had that weight on me of like, 'Wow, if I ever let anyone know, it's bad.' So I just never did," he added.
