It's been a wild few days for YouTube star Shane Dawson.

Days after he apologized for joking about engaging in sexual acts with his cat — comments that surfaced from a 2015 interview — Dawson is again in the headlines for proposing to his boyfriend Ryland Adams.

People magazine reports the men have been together for three years and Dawson popped the question on the anniversary of their first date.

"HE SAID YES!!!!!!" Dawson, 30, tweeted along with photos of the moment.

"THIS IS THE BEST NIGHT OF MY LIFE AHHHHHHHHH!!!! THANK U GUYS FOR ALL THE LOVE MY HEART IS LITERALLY GONNA EXPLODE," he wrote in a follow-up tweet.




Adams also shared the news on his Twitter account, saying he "can't wait to spend the rest of my life with you. I've never been happier in my whole entire life!!"


People notes that before asking to marry Adams, Dawson took to Instagram to share a special message.

"Ryland, thank you for making the last 3 years the happiest time of my life," he wrote. "Thank you for sleeping next to me even though I sweat through the sheets. Thank you for making me smile and reminding me how loved I am in real life even when I'm being canceled online.

"Thank you for letting me cover you in fake tattoos and wigs for videos and sometimes just for a fun Saturday night," the YouTube added. "Thank you for loving me unconditionally and reminding me [every day] that I should love myself too. I thank the universe [every day] for bringing you into my life and I can't wait to start a future with you and start every day thinking about how lucky I am. I love you more than I can ever even explain in words."


The announcement comes just days after Dawson was caught up in a bizarre controversy. Audio of Dawson talking about engaging in sex acts with his cat from a 2015 interview went viral. Dawson said the comments were a joke and that he didn't actually have sex with his cat.

"I didn't fuck my cat. I didn't cum on my cat. I didn't put my dick anywhere near my cat. I've never done anything weird with my cats," he wrote. "I promised myself I wasn't going to make apology videos after last years thing so I'm just trying to be as short and honest with this as possible."


He later added:

"So, I'm sorry for what I said about my cat, I'm sorry for what I said about anything or anyone that was offensive, and I'm sorry for being someone who thought being super offensive and shocking all the time was funny.

"I'm sorry for my past. But I'm really to make it right and I feel like without my past I wouldn't be who I am today and I wouldn't be able to grow & spend my energy on things that actually mean something," he added. "This has been the best 2 years of my life & it's because I've been able to drop the act & be myself. and I'm sorry for not doing it sooner."
