The former Glee star first hinted that he might be in a same-sex relationship back in March.

Glee might have finished years ago but that's not going to stop us from wanting to catch up with the New Directioners and checking out what's going on in their lives now.

Well, it turns out that Kevin McHale, who played Artie Abrams on the hit show, has been slowly opening up about his sexuality and fans believe that Kevin now has a boyfriend.

The speculation began in March after Kevin shared an image of himself holding another person's hand, which appeared to be male. The black-and-white photo was captioned with an emoji that means “I love you” in American sign language. Prior to this, Kevin had never publicly commented on his sexuality. Fans have therefore interpreted the post as Kevin coming out.

Over the weekend, Kevin shared another image. This time he was cuddling up with another guy, who appears to be actor Austin McKenzie. He captioned the pic, #MyCoachella, and the two seemed to be enjoying some quality time together away from the madness of the music festival that took place last weekend (13-15 April).

Austin McKenzie is probably best known for his role as Melchior Gabor in Deaf West's Broadway revival of Spring Awakening. Kevin and Austin both appeared in Dustin Lance Black's miniseries When We Rise last year.

How adorable!

We're going to need a full history of their relationship and about 100 more pictures of them together, like, now. Congrats to the happy couple! [H/T Queerty]
