Newly-engaged *NSYNC star Lance Bass revealed details of his "amazing" proposal to longtime boyfriend Michael “Turkey” Turchin in a special edition of his SiriusXM radio show, "Dirty Pop with Lance Bass."
The 34-year-old pop star spoke at length about the significance of proposing in New Orleans, revealing tidbits of the ring and the couple's post-engagement celebrations in the broadcast.
"New Orleans is my favorite city in the world," Bass said. "I’ve been coming here my whole life. I was born just across the border here [in Laurel, Mississippi]…and Turkey also has roots here." He went on to note, "I got down on one knee and I proposed, right in front of Jackson Square, my favorite place."
Although an official wedding date has not yet been set, Bass said he and Turchin were "just going to enjoy this moment" and "probably" hold off until 2014 before tying the knot.
"He is going to be a great husband and the best thing is…he is going to be such a great dad," Bass gushed. "I am a traditionalist, I’m from Mississippi…I called [his] parents to ask permission before I proposed yesterday…[and] I told my parents, and they’re all really, really happy."
