American actor Kal Penn has opened up about his s*xuality in his upcoming memoir, disclosing his engagement to his partner of 11 years.
The “House” and “Designated Survivor” star Penn, 44, discussed his love story with his fiancé, Josh, in an interview with People for his memoir, “You Can’t Be Serious”
In his book, Penn recounts the story of when he and his partner first met while he —Penn– was living in Washington, D.C., during his two-year stint with the Obama administration. Penn said he’s now ready to share more details about his relationship after holding off since his partner and family “are fairly quiet. They don’t love attention and shy away from the limelight.”
“I’ve always been very public with everybody I’ve personally interacted with. Whether it’s somebody that I meet at a bar, if Josh and I are out or we’re talking to friends,” Penn told People. “I’m really excited to share our relationship with readers.”

In his interview with People, Penn also shared that he discovered his “own s*xuality relatively late in life compared to other people.”
“There’s no timeline on this stuff,” he said. “People figure their (expletive) out at different times in their lives, so I’m glad I did when I did.”
The son of Indian immigrant parents who grew up in New Jersey said he had no issues discussing his relationship with Josh with his supportive family. “When you’ve already told your Indian parents and the South Asian community that you intend to be an actor for a living, really any conversations that come after that are super easy. They’re just like, ‘Yeah, okay.’ ”
“I felt very supported by everyone,” Penn said. “That’s a wonderful thing. I know everybody has different experiences with that and so I definitely feel very fortunate.”
Presently, Penn and Josh are happily planning their wedding.
“The big debate is how big, or small to go. “I want the (big) Indian wedding,” Penn said, while Josh “hates attention” and wants a smaller, family affair. “So we have to meet halfway in the middle.”
