Sean Hayes wearing that gold band on The Talk
Will & Grace star Sean Hayes has revealed that he is engaged to marry his partner of eight years, composer and music producer Scott Icenogle.
Hayes, 44, who is notoriously private about his personal life, only came clean about the pending nuptials when viewers noticed him wearing a gold band while recently on CBS’s The Talk.
When RumorFix asked the actor’s representative if Hayes is married, he explained that, “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.”
Hayes came out as gay in March 2010, telling The Advocate magazine that he had never tried to hide the truth about his sexuality.
“You are your authentic self to whom and when you choose to be. And if you don’t know somebody, then why would you explain to them how you live your life?” he said.
He won an Emmy Award, four SAG Awards and one American Comedy Award and received six Golden Globe nominations for his work as Jack McFarland on Will & Grace. Hayes’ most recent show Sean Saves the World was cancelled. He recently joined the cast of the sitcom The Millers.
