CNN anchor Don Lemon has revealed to his Instagram followers that he is engaged to partner Tim Malone and their dogs served as little fluffy cupids for them. Malone popped the question on his birthday, with help from their puppies Boomer and Barkley, engraving the proposal on their custom tags. Lemon showed off his engagement ring, adding: “He gave me a present on his birthday. How could I say no?” In his own Instagram story Malone referenced the proposal, adding: “Breakfast with the fiancé.” And the newly-engaged were flooded with well wishes and congratulations from fans. Lemon came out back in 2011 when he published book “Transparent.” The book was dedicated to Tyler Clementi, a student who had committed suicide because of homophobic abuse. Don Lemon shared an on-air kiss with Malone during CNN’s New Year’s Eve coverage in January 2018.
