Wedding bells are ringing for Sean Hayes! The Will and Grace alum, 44, is engaged to marry his longtime partner, music composer Scott Icenogle, the actor's rep confirms to Us Weekly.

Speculation about Hayes' relationship status amped up earlier this week, when he appeared on The Talk wearing a silver band on his left ring finger. He also sported the band on Oct. 24 on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, where he spoke about traveling to Istanbul with Icenogle and pal Will Arnett.

"It's beautiful. We saw all the historical monuments that you should see," he told DeGeneres, as a photo of the trio appeared on the screen behind him.

Hayes and Icenogle have been together for about eight years, according to Rumor Fix. The Millers actor came out publicly in 2010 in an interview with The Advocate, but has otherwise chosen to keep his private life private.

"I spend time with a special someone in my life," he told the mag at the time. "That's it. That's all I need. I don't need events. I don't do a lot. I live my life like an 85-year-old man. I'm just quiet. It's fantastic."
