Sean Hayes To Wed Longtime Partner Scott Icenogle After Seven Years Together

sean-hayes_scott-icenogleFormer Will & Grace star Sean Hayes is engaged to music producer and composer Scott Icenogle.

RumorFix reports that Hayes’s ring finger was sporting a new piece of jewelry when the Emmy winner appeared as a guest on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Friday and on The Talk on Monday. While no mention of the engagement was made on either show, it’s not surprising given the actor’s reluctance to discuss his private life.

Hayes offically came out in 2010, but later apologized to the gay community for not publicly acknowledging his orientation sooner.

The couple, whose engagement was confirmed by Hayes’s rep, celebrated seven years together in May. Congratulations!
