Don Lemon is tying the knot.

The CNN Tonight anchor revealed Saturday in an Instagram post that his boyfriend, Tim Malone, popped the question while celebrating the real estate agent’s birthday. 

"He gave me a present on his birthday. How could I say no?” the 53-year-old news anchor captioned the photo, which showed two photos of their pet’s dog collars that read, “Daddy Will You Marry Papa?"

Malone also confirmed the happy news by sharing the same photo on his Instagram with the caption, “He said Yes!” 

Lemon and Malone, who have been dating since 2016, shared an onscreen kiss during a live broadcast of CNN’s New Year’s Eve broadcast last year.

Lemon came out in 2011 in his book Transparent, in which he wrote: "I think it would be great if everybody could be out. But it’s such a personal choice."
