CNN Tonight anchor Don Lemon is officially engaged. His boyfriend, real estate agent Tim Malone, proposed — by having their two dogs, Boomer and Barkley, wear collars with tags that read, “Daddy Will You Marry Papa?” Lemon revealed this on Instagram with a caption that reads, “He gave me a present on his birthday. How could I say no?”

Malone proposed after he and Lemon celebrated Malone’s birthday on Friday at a Manhattan restaurant. They have been together since 2016 and famously shared an on-air New Years’ Eve kiss to ring in 2018 as part of CNN’s coverage.
