It’s been a HUGE week for Lance Bass! One week after reuniting with his ‘N Sync bandmates for the second-most-talked-about moment from the MTV Video Music Awards, the 34-year-old singer revealed he is engaged to former boyfriend and now fiance Michael Turchin on instagram!

Lance posted the photo above just a couple hours ago with the caption, “He said YES!! Love this man @michaelturchinart.” It seems the proposal may have actually gone down last night as Michael tweeted, “Happiest guy in the world :)” Saturday evening.

Lance and Michael have been dating since December of 2011 and according to Us Weekly Lance texted his partner’s parents to ask for permission before popping the question with a black diamond band while in New Orleans this weekend.

Celebrities were quick to offer up their congratulations, including Bravolebrities Andy Cohen and Lisa Vanderpump:


And just in case you having been keeping up with Lance Bass’s personal life the last couple years and find yourself asking the question, “Who is Lance Bass’s fiance Michael Turchin?” here’s the answer from his Facebook page “About” section:

Michael Turchin was born and raised in the cultural melting pot that is Miami Beach , Florida. From an early age he showed an immediate love and ability to create impressive works of art, and by age 10 he had several pieces chosen to be held permanently on display at the Department of Education in Washington DC. After high school, Michael entered and ultimately graduated from Georgetown University with a Bachelors of Science in Finance. Instead of pursuing a career in business, Michael made the decision to move to Los Angeles to pursue his passion for both the dramatic and visual arts.

Inspired by the Hollywood’s effervescent pop culture, Michael decided to once again pick up a paint brush and delve back into what he knows best. In less than six months he has already begun to make a name for himself in the Los Angeles art scene and has been commissioned by celebrities including Jamie Lynn Sigler, Sela Ward, Lance Bass, Joanna Garcia-Swisher, Aj Mclean, and Lisa Vanderpump among others.

Michael is eager is to make a permanent splash in today’s popular art scene , and at the current rate his mark will be as bold as his paintings.
