'Glee's' Jane Lynch engaged

Sue Sylvester may be unlucky in love so far, but the actress who portrays her is getting hitched.

A spokesperson for Jane Lynch confirmed to CNN that the “Glee” star and her partner, Lara Embry, are engaged.

“Yes, it’s true,” said Gabrielle Krengel, a spokesperson for Lynch. “Jane and Lara are thrilled to be engaged.”

Embry is a psychologist and she and Lynch have been spotted beaming on the red carpet at events such as the Golden Globes where “Glee” took top honors for best musical or comedy television series.

Lynch has long been well known to fans for her appearances in Christopher Guest films and now has a strong small screen fan base thanks to her role as the diabolical cheerleading coach Sylvester on “Glee.”

    I just found your website on Google and I must say,

    How can you be so judgemental of DC? You do not know that person. I think that is very tacky! God did create everyone and everyone has an opinion. It is tacky to get so personal because someone states their opinion. I do not see anyone calling you names.

    dc is one of the so-called Christians that give Christianity a bad name.
    God (if there is one) supposedly created all of us, including gay
    people, and He/She couldn't have made mistakes, right?

    If you are joined together by the clergy, then that particular religious organization recognizes the marriage. But until you register your status with the government (i.e. CIVIL authority) you are not legally married. Therefore all registered marriages are civil unions as far as the government is concerned. It is simply acknowledging the legal status of the couple under the law of man, not God. Religions can declare what type of marriages they wish to recognize under their tenets and the government CANNOT interfere. That's separation of church and state. But no religious view should not have any authority over what the government considers to be legal. You'd think local governments would want to register as many couples as they can and collect all those fees.

    DC and Tyler....BLAH BLAH BLAH....Why don't you evolve and come into the 21st century? You narrow-minded, bigoted, supposed "Christians" who have nothing better to do that sit in judgement of others, are a DYING breed. "Judge not lest ye be judged!" See...I can quote the Bible too...BIG DEAL! Exactly how do you choose which scriptures to follow and which no longer apply? Shellfish? Women going into the House of the Lord while on their period? Both are prohibited in Liviticus, however, it is funny how you choose to focus on the one about men "laying" with men. Me thinks you doth protest too much. Hmmmm...I wonder why? WHATEVER! Most rational, logical, non-brainwashed, SANE people use the Bible as a tool to help live life, not as a tool to condemn others. I guess that doesn't apply to people like you. You stand in judgement of the gays, but you know what...they pity you! Have a blessed day!

    Inbreeding is the biggest cause for idiocy and you two are poster children for it. In your cases, not having children would be a good idea. Too bad your parents/brother/sister didn't think of it.

    Nice comment to Paul. A perfect example of exactly what he was talking about. You don't agree with a person so you call names because you can't think of something logical or intelligent to say. I'm not against gay marriage, but some people here crack me up. They call someone out for being hateful and then try to make the most vile comment they can think of. So accepting gays is ok, but accepting Christians is vile? Who is out of touch? What to you do with gay Christians? Are they in or out of your little click?

    First, congrats Jane & Lara! Have a fabulous wedding, and best wishes for years of wedded bliss! So exciting!

    In re: DC, he/she can believe whatever he/she wants to believe. It affects me not. I am a gay married woman. I have the government issued marriage license to prove it. So if DC wants to believe there is no such thing has two women getting married, I don't have to convince him/her that it's true. It is true.

    Had DC just come on and spoke his/her beliefs, that would be one thing. But to lay out the threat of hell, and act as if we need salvation, that is what other folks don't tolerate so well. I accept and will stand up for anyone's right to believe what they will, but I won't listen to the gibberish if I don't' find it useful. Been there and done that. Good luck to DC, no hard feelings. But there is a such thing as gay people getting legally maried and full equality is coming.

    Meanwhile, we will happily celebrate the marriage of two fantastic people who fall in love and make the commitment to spend the rest of their lives together. How wonderful for Jane and Lara!

One being they dont believe in birth control guess what get fixed after 2 or 4 kids if you can afford to raise that many of them these days. I am strong in my beliefs about god and church but I will not judge a man\man or woman\woman relationship any different than a man\woman relationship. God fearing people like yourself DC are ignorant to the fact. You people try to push your beliefs on other people,make your comment and move on. These are the times we live in now. I want to know how you would react if your step-daughter came up to you and said she was gay. Now wouldnt that rock your world. Bet you would dis-own her in a heart beat.

    DC can best be summed up in a Bible verse: "If I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, but do not have love, I am like a clanging gong or a tinkling cymbal."

    You want for DC to believe as you do but will not offer her the same license. Sounds like a lot like a double standard, no matter how offensive DC is and her ideas are seen as legitimate to the point of being fought with vitriol. I personally could care less who thinks what; that is there domain. Seems to me that marriage is a little crazy no matter who or how it is involved. Most people seem to lack the ability to run their own lives, controlling others seems to evade the central issue.

    DC, I was supporting you at first, but then as things went along, it just deteriorated. Essentially, there is the biblical concept of marriage. However, if we start limiting civil liberties and fundamental rights, it will generate a slippery slope!!! We do not want to open that can of worms. I am a Christian and I believe in living with Jesus Christ as our example. Remember how he treated the woman at the well.... He never judged her though she lived a lifestyle contrary to Christianity. Try to remember that you will not win any souls for Christ with hatred and judgment. Embrace everyone and speak the truth in love! Peace!!

    I have read the article. Not once does it say she is getting married (although it is implied). She is engaged to be hitched. Yes gays and lesbians should have the right to get married, but this article didn't use the word. So why the fight? Are engaged and hitched also restricted to one man and one woman? Is there a defense of engagement bill or a defense of hitching bill?

    Congratulations to Jane and her future wife on their upcoming marriage. 50 years ago, people refused to recognize the marriages of inter-racial couples and banned them in many states, claiming that they were "against God." Well guess what: each of us is free to have our own relationship with God and follow what He calls us to do. There is simply no logical reason in America to keep these loving couples from getting married. Again, congratulations to the happy couple. You will find that people who hate you and want to discriminate against you get fewer and fewer every year.

    to DC: I've never understood why you "we love the Lord and you should too" Christians insist on trying to shove your beliefs down the throats of anyone who disagrees with you. It doesn't seem very "Christian" and it polarizes and annoys those of us who wish to think for ourselves. Not everyone believes the way you do. It's the truth and it's really okay! We promise not to think in your church if you promise not to pray for us.

    To Jane and Lara: a true marriage is in the hearts and minds of those who love enough to be committed to each other. But you already know that, so you're way ahead of DC and his ilk.

    The Bible also includes slavery, polygamy, incest, and many other behaviors that are not smiled upon in our society.

    Marriage should be about love, be it between a man or a woman, a man or a man, or a woman and a woman. With half of all traditional marriages ending in divorce who is to define what is a true marriage? If people love one another, why shouldn't they be allowed to be together.

    Funny that some people actually believe that "real marriage" means one man and one women and children...what about those man/women couple who chose NOT to have a baby- is that a fake marriage?

But we don't have kids, so by your twisted definition, I guess it's not a real marriage after all. That's going to make our next anniversary dinner rather awkward!

    And although a minor part she was great in Julie & Julia too! In fact all of the "past" parts of that were brilliant & she was no exception.

    Jane Lynch is such a talented actor, and so well-spoken in every interview with her I've seen... so I'm super happy to hear this news. Congratulations, girl!! Many years of happiness to you both!

    If you haven't seen her movies – please see Best in Show and A Mighty Wind – she was absolutely hilarious in those. She was also very funny in The 40 Year Old Virgin as the store manager. I'm very happy for her.

    Geez, how comes Bruce Banner can say something like that & I'm so polite and I still can't figure out why they permanently blocked me from commenting on any of the news stories?!! WHY????????

    Anyhoo...Congratulations Jane your star is still rising!

    i'm so excited for her! She is one of the most talented, hard working actresses out there! She has a role on criminal minds, glee, and she does so many movies! I loved her in role models and i loved her work on the L word. Hopefully california will repeal its hateful laws and she can get married here!

    I've only seen her in Two and a half men and I think she is great. I'm happy for her. Life is hard enough and to find a good partner is a beautiful thing.
