Is Kal Penn married?

In an interview published by People on Halloween morning, Penn revealed he is gay and engaged to his partner of 11 years, Josh.

The announcement comes in tandem with further details on his memoir, You Can't Be Serious, which is set to release on November 2, 2021.

Penn's relationship has been out of the public eye for over a decade, and the book will cover all of the details of his love life that he's willing to reveal.

"I'm really excited to share our relationship with readers. But Josh, my partner, my parents, and my brother, four people who I'm closest to in the family, are fairly quiet," he said in the interview. "They don't love attention and shy away from the limelight."

The book will cover multiple aspects of his relationship, as well as his family and how they've supported him over the years.

"The whole point of writing this book was for the reader to feel like we're having a beer together.

"I thought, if we're supposed to feel like we're having a beer together, then I want to take you into my stories and I want you to experience them with the same joy that I've experienced them. That was the way that my friends have met my parents and Josh, as they've gotten to know them over the last 10 years."
