One week after Lance Bass, 34, reunited with the members of *NSync at the VMAs, he proposed to his boyfriend, Michael Turchin.
The special moment took place in New Orleans. Lance presented Michael, an aspiring actor and model, with a gorgeous black diamond band.
But first, Lance reportedly texted Michael’s parents for permission, which they obviously gave in spades.
On September 1st, he tweeted a photo of Michael showing off the sparkler with a caption that read, “He said YES!! Love this man.”
The couple have been together since December 2011.
Lance is now host of Dirty Pop with Lance Bass on Sirius radio. He was not out when *NSync was at the height of their powers in the late ’90s, and for that reason, being able to take the stage on August 25th with Justin and crew was especially meaningful to him.
On August 28th Lance tweeted:
For the first time ever I got to perform w *NSYNC as an out entertainer and was thinking of this man… http://t.co/EmVPSrVmBj
