On Friday, Don Lemon announced that he is officially heading to the altar with real estate agent beau Tim Malone. The two have been dating since 2016 and Lemon showed that Malone asked him to marry him as an early birthday gift using their dogs Boomer and Barkley. The 53-year-old journalist received his proposal when his dogs wore tags reading “Daddy Will You Marry Papa?”

The caption read:

He gave me a present on his birthday. How could I say no?

Boomer and Barkley have been a big part of the couple’s life:

Now that’s love… and a persistent alarm clock.

Lemon came out in his 2011 book Transparent where he also shared that for many years he was too focused on his career to find a partner:

Is it because of me? Is it because of what I do? Is it because they think they’re gonna get some sort of fame, or… I have no idea. So in that sense, dating was a bit difficult. And it’s probably why I was single for so long, ’cause I was just so focused on my career and probably not so trusting of people wanting to get into a relationship with me.

Congratulations to Don and Tom—and Boomer and Barkley!

On Saturday, 55-year-old Marc Jacobs tied the knot with 35-year-old fiancé Charly “Char” Defrancesco in an intimate gathering that had a star-studded, fashionable guest list, reports PEOPLE. The couple had their ceremony in New York City and their guest list included Kate Moss, Naomi Campbell, Gigi and Bella Hadid, Lil’ Kim, Anna Wintour, Justin Theroux, Frank Ocean, Erika Jayne, Rita Ora, Mya, Christina Ricci, Chloe Sevigny, Rachel Zoe, Emily Ratajkowski and more.

You might remember Marc Jacobs’ creative proposal when the designer hired a flashmob of dancers to perform to Prince’s hit Kiss at Chipotle.

  1. Don is always talking about how the white man is such a problem to society, and yet he is just married one. Typical. Also, we really don’t need to see Don in a bathing suit.

  2. What a snotty-looking elitist life these people appear to lead. And for what ? Don Lemon is so stupid he believed the Jussie Smollett story, when every cab-driver in the country knew it was a hokey tale: “My initial reaction was sadness. I wasn’t shocked. I didn’t like that it happened to him,” Lemon, who came out publicly in 2011, said. “I called him because we have mutual friends. I got the friend on the phone, the friend talked to me for a minute. The friend goes, ‘Jussie’s here seeing the doctor.’ And I talked to Jussie for a minute and then he said, ‘I gotta go, the doctor’s here.’ And it just made me sad. One, he has to deal with discrimination as a black man, then, on top of that, he has to be gay and he’s out. And then fame.” (Yeah…looks like your life is so hard as a gay black man in the U.S., Lemon).
