Sean Hayes is engaged to his longtime partner, Scott Icenogle!
The “Will and Grace” actor, known for his role as Jack McFarland in the former NBC sitcom, sparked speculation after wearing a band on his left ring finger.
Hayes’ rep confirmed that the actor is indeed engaged.
Sean’s rep stated, “Sean Hayes and Scott Icenogle have been together for eight years. They are not yet married, but they have been engaged for quite some time.”
The 44-year-old actor referred to music producer Scott as his ”other half” last week while on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show”, saying he planned a trip to Instanbul with his “The Millers” co-star Will Arnett.
He said, “We know how the Middle East loves the gays, so fantastic, I’m there with bells on, literally.”
Sean came out publicly as gay in a 2010 magazine interview when he said, “Really? You’re gonna shoot the gay guy down? I never have had a problem saying who I am. I am who I am. I was never in, as they say. Never.”
The star is known for not speaking publicly about his private life and admitted in the same interview that he doesn’t like to say too much about his personal life to make certain the characters he plays are believable.
He told The Advocate, “When I play a gay character I want to be as believable as possible. And when I’m playing a straight character I also want to be as believable as possible. So the less that people know about my personal life, the more believable I can be as a character.”
