Rep. Sean Maloney (D-N.Y.) is set to be the second sitting congressman to marry a same-sex partner.
Maloney’s office on Tuesday announced his engagement to his partner of 21 years, Randy Florke.
The freshman Democrat represents New York’s 18th District, which he won in a narrow victory over Rep. Nan Hayworth (R-N.Y.) in 2012.
Maloney and Florke have three adopted children. The two got engaged on Christmas Day and have not yet announced a wedding date, according to CNN, which first reported the news.
In 2012, Barney Frank became the first congressman to wed his same-sex partner. Another freshman congressman, Rep. Mark Pocan (D-Wis.), married his husband in 2006 in Canada before entering Congress.
"Congrats to my good friend @RepSeanMaloney on his engagement. I wish you two many more years of happiness," Pocan tweeted Tuesday.
