What a huge week for Lance! After reuniting with ‘NSYNC at the VMAs on Aug. 25, the singer proposed to his longtime boyfriend, Michael Turchin. And he said yes!
Lance Bass & Michael Turchin Get Engaged
The couple got engaged when Lance presented Michael, who is an aspiring actor and model, with a black diamond band while in New Orleans, La, according to Us Weekly. Apparently Lance even texted Michael’s parents to get their approval!
“He said YES!! Love this man,” Lance tweeted on Sept. 1, along with a picture of Michael showing off his ring.
“They’re such a great couple, everyone is so happy for them,” a source told Us. “Their friends and family are thrilled.”
Michael and Lance are clearly thrilled too. On Aug. 31, Michael took to Twitter to express his joy: “Happiest guy in the world,” he tweeted.
After a triumphant return to the VMAs stage with his former bandmates, we didn’t think things could get even better for Lance. But it seems he knew that even bigger moments were on the horizon, as he tweeted after the show that his mind was on one thing and one thing only — Michael. “For the first time ever I got to perform w *NSYNC as an out entertainer and was thinking of this man,” Lance tweeted along with a picture of himself and Michael.
What a romantic, inspirational story. Congrats, Lance and Michael!
