Glee star Jane Lynch is engaged to her longtime girlfriend, psychologist Lara Embry, the actress told The New York Times. The couple, who attended last week’s Golden Globes together, are planning a walk down the aisle in May.

Lynch, long critically praised for her supporting turns in films like Best in Show and The 40-Year-Old Virgin, is currently scoring rave reviews for her work as Sue Sylvester on Glee.

Last year Embry managed to snag some high praise of her own. The National Center for Lesbian Rights gave her its Justice Award for her involvement in a high-profile same-sex custody lawsuit in Florida.
