Congratulations to Sean Hayes!

The Emmy winner is engaged to his longtime partner, composer and music producer Scott Icenogle, Hayes' rep confirmed to E! News Monday.

While the 44-year-old actor didn't make a big announcement, the cat was yanked out of the bag the minute he sat down for an interview wearing a band on his left ring finger, leading to instant speculation that he and his mate of roughly eight years had tied the knot.

Well, not quite yet, but the couple are planning on it!

Wearing his ring, Hayes dished on Ellen last week about a last-minute trip he took to Istanbul with Icenogle, whom he referred to as "my other half," and his BFF Will Arnett.

"We know how the Middle East loves the gays, so fantastic, I'm there with bells on, literally," he recalled facetiously. Not long after they got back, Hayes ended up on The Millers—and sharing a kiss—with Arnett. 

Meanwhile, it sounds as though the timing couldn't be better to take that next step with Icenogle.

Todd Milliner, Hayes' producing partner, told USA Today last October, "Once Will & Grace ended and he wasn't in the public eye all the time, and we were just producing—and then when he went to Broadway on top of it—he did seem like he relaxed a lot more. Not just about his personal life, just about everything. He seems like he's a lot happier."

After stealing the spotlight week after week on Will & Grace for eight seasons in his Emmy-winning role as the boisterous and fabulously self-absorbed Jack McFarland, Hayes won another Emmy for hosting the Tonys and last year starred in his own short-lived sitcom, Sean Saves the World. Hayes and Milliner's company, Hazy Mills Productions, is also behind the hit shows Hollywood Game Night, Grimm and Hot in Cleveland.
