‘N Sync’s Lance Bass Engaged
It’s been a busy August for Lance Bass. First, he reunited with his boy band ‘N Sync for 15 seconds of screen time at last Sunday’s MTV VMAs. Now the singer is marrying his boo! Yep, Lance Bass is engaged to his boyfriend of nearly two years.
Bass asked his BF Michael Turchin, with whom he has been involved since Dec. 2011, to wed. Bass reportedly presented him with a black diamond band in New Orleans. Awww.
Bass tweeted the good news.

And he shared this photo. What a happy couple!
Turchin, who is tall, dark and handsome, a contrast to Bass’ golden boy looks, tweeted his joy, and one can only think it’s about his new off-the-market status.
Happiest guy in the world

Ever the romantic and the traditionalist, Bass, 34, asked his future hubby’s parents for permission in advance, but he did so in a thoroughly modern way. He texted them to get their approval. Smooth move, Lance.
A source told Us Weekly, “They’re such a great couple, everyone is so happy for them. Their friends and family are thrilled.”
Bass previously dated Reichen Lehmkuhlin of ‘Amazing Race’ as well as Brazilian model Pedro Andrade. He also briefly dated Ben Thigpen, an NYC hairdresser. He came out as gay in 2006.
Congrats to Lance and Michael, aka the Bass-Turchins!
