Audra McDonald of The Practice, who is also a Tony Award winning actress currently staring in Broadway’s “Porgy and Bess,” and Will Swenson, who plays Tick in “Priscilla Queen of the Desert: The Musical,” got engaged on New Year’s Day.

“Thanks for all of the sweet congrats on our engagement,” McDonald tweeted Tuesday. “We’re super happy and excited.”

A publicist for McDonald on Wednesday said the couple isn’t releasing any further details out of respect for their privacy.

It will be the second marriage for both.

Forty-one-year-old McDonald is mom to 10-year-old Zoe Madeline from a previous marriage to bassist Peter Donovan. Thirty-eight-year-old Swenson has two sons, Bridger and Sawyer, with ex-wife Amy Westerby.
