N Sync has been all over the headlines over the past week thanks to their all-too-brief reunion at during Justin Timberlake’s performance at the 2013 MTV VMAs. And now group member Lance Bass is making headlines of his own revealing that he has become engaged to his longtime boyfriend, Michael Turchin.
According to Us Weekly, sources close to Bass say the singer sent text messages to Turchin’s parents, asking for permission to marry their son, and then he popped the question during a trip to New Orleans, proposing to the aspiring actor and model with a black diamond band.
Turchin hinted at the engagement on Aug. 31, tweeting, “Happiest guy in the world.”
Bass later confirmed the news when he Instagrammed a photo of he and Turchin showing off the engagement ring.
“They’re such a great couple, everyone is so happy for them,” another source tells US. “Their friends and family are thrilled.”
We congratulate Bass on his engagement and it will no doubt be great to see all of the guys of N Sync reunite, once again, for Bass’ wedding.
