Cheyenne Jackson and long-time partner Monte Lapka married on Saturday.

The openly gay actor messaged the news to his nearly 30,000 Twitter followers.

“It's official, after 11 years together, Zora's no longer a bastard. Married the best man I've ever known,” he wrote, referring to his dog Zora.

In remarks to gay glossy Frontiers before gay marriage was legalized in New York, Jackson's home state, the 36-year-old actor said he's ready to make it official.

“At the time, when we became domestic partners last year, we were filling out some forms for life insurance or wills or something and we thought we should make this as legal as we can,” Jackson said. “I'd love to marry him. I think we will when it's legal.”

Jackson plays Dustin Goolsby, the musical coach of rival team Vocal Adrenaline, on the Fox musical-comedy Glee and Danny Baker on the NBC sitcom 30 Rock.

Jackson added that being closeted was never an option.

“I just think it frees you as an actor,” he said of coming out, “as a performer, as a person when you can just truly be who you are and get that shit out of the way and then people can focus on what's really important – and that's you, that's you as an actor, that's what you bring to the part, that's you making the material live.”
