Glee's Jane Lynch is engaged to her longtime girlfriend, psychologist Lara Embry, the actress, 49, tells The New York Times.

The two, who attended last week’s Golden Globes together, are planning a walk down the aisle in May.

Lynch has another reason to celebrate: She recently earned a Golden Globe nomination for her role as Sue Sylvester. She and her castmates also won a Golden Globe nomination and a Screen Actors Guild Award for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Comedy.

She recently told Access Hollywood she's thrilled the show has been renewed for a second season.

"This a psychological relief!" she said. "Knowing that I get to do this show and play this character and work with these people for another year is just thrilling to me! We're booking! It's really good!"
