Kal Penn has some exciting news to share: The actor, who rose to fame in the Harold & Kumar films, is engaged to his longtime partner, Josh.

Penn, 44, hasn’t spoke publicly about his sexuality in the past. While he says he’s always maintained an open attitude with those around him, Josh (whose last name has not been revealed) and their family members are more “quiet” about their personal lives.

“I’ve always been very public with everybody I’ve personally interacted with. Whether it’s somebody that I meet at a bar, if Josh and I are out or we’re talking to friends,” Penn told People in an interview to promote his new memoir, You Can’t Be Serious. “I’m really excited to share our relationship with readers. But Josh, my partner, my parents and my brother — four people who I’m closest to in the family — are fairly quiet. They don’t love attention and shy away from the limelight.”
