Congratulations are in order for Mr. Schue.

Matthew Morrison, who plays glee club director and Spanish teacher Mr. Will Schuester on the FOX series "Glee," is engaged to his girlfriend of two years, model and singer Renee Puente, 29.

The 35-year-old actor confirmed the news on Twitter on Friday, June 28, at 6:29 a.m. ET following a report by E! Online, which said that Morrison's friends, legendary rock and pop star Elton John and partner David Furnish, announced the couple's engagement at the annual White Tie and Tiara Ball to benefit the Elton John AIDS Foundation in London on Thursday.

"An incredible night of LOVE @ejaf Ball," the actor said. "I'm going to marry my best friend! Happy day for me and @Renee_Puente."

John and Morrison collaborated on a song on the "Glee" star's 2011 self-titled debut album. The actor released his second major studio album, "Where It All Began," earlier this month.
