Australian actor Hugh Sheridan may only have come out last year but he already engaged.

Sheridan, who only announced his relationship in November, got proposed to by his boyfriend Kurt Roberts at the Adelaide Fringe Festival.

Hugh said yes before running back on stage to announce, “I just got engaged!”

He previously admitted that he was “forward” in approaching Kurt, adding, “I was pretty persistent. I messaged him and he didn’t respond. And then we caught up again with some mutual friends around Christmas and that’s when I realised I just needed to slow down and give him some space.”

‘So then I started to get very old-school about the whole thing.

‘There was no rushing. We just went out for dinners and took things very slowly and I did everything by the book because I knew, deep down, that this guy was a keeper,’ he added.
