Facebook co-founder Chris Hughes is engaged to his boyfriend of five years, Sean Eldridge. The couple announced their engagement at a Freedom to Marry reception held in their Manhattan loft, reports the New York Post.

Hughes was one of Mark Zuckerberg's Harvard roommates, worked as Facebook's spokesperson, and reportedly made $500 million off the social networking site.

He's now the founder and director of Jumo.com.

Hughes and Elridge have not set a wedding date yet, and are reportedly waiting until gay marriage is legalized in New York before tying the knot. Eldridge is political director for Freedom to Marry, a campaign working on the same-sex marriage cause.
