Congrats are in order for Sean Hayes! The actor, best known for his hilarious stint as Jack on Will & Grace, married boyfriend of eight years, Scott Icenogle, last week.

The sitcom star, most recently seen on The Millers, announced the happy news on his Facebook page as a #TBT. Alongside an adorable photo of them smiling, Hayes wrote: "Here's a #TBT photo of Scotty and me getting married last week. Took us 8 years but we did it!"

Throughout his career Hayes has remained notoriously private about his personal life — only in 2010 did he come out to The Advocate saying, "I spend time with a special someone in my life ... That's it. That's all I need ... It's fantastic."

We only found out about his engagement last week, when the funnyman accidentally flashed a gold band during an interview on The Talk. After that slip-up, his rep confirmed that he has been engaged — and not only recently, but for awhile!

So why keep his romantic life so hush hush? "When I play a gay character I want to be as believable as possible. And when I'm playing a straight character I also want to be as believable as possible. So the less that people know about my personal life, the more believable I can be as a character," Hayes also said in his 2010 interview with The Advocate.

Well, it looks like he was overjoyed to marry his longtime beau last week — just look at those smiles (and matching suits)!
