The 53-year-old anchor shared the news with his followers on Instagram. His boyfriend, real estate agent Tim Malone, popped the question after the couple celebrated Tim’s birthday on Friday.

It looks like Tim got really creative and proposed using custom-made collar tags for his and Don’s two dogs, Boomer and Barkley.
