The Glee creator, 45, announced he recently became engaged to his long-term partner during a Friday KIIS-FM radio interview with Ryan Seacrest.
"I'm with a great fellow now who I've known for 15 years," Murphy said, though he neglected to mention his fiance's name. "We just got engaged and I'm very excited about it!"
In addition to his work on Glee, the Golden Globe winner created the F/X drama Nip/Tuck and the cult WB series Popular. He also directed the film adaptation of Elizabeth Gilbert's memoir, Eat, Pray, Love, which starred Julia Roberts and Javier Bardem.
