Lena Dunham tweeted her excitement about the decision to allow same-sex unions in all 50 states.

Lena Dunham might finally be ready to get married — all thanks to the Supreme Court.

The “Girls” star famously pledged to not marry her longtime boyfriend Jack Antonoff until same-sex marriage until was legal for everyone in all 50 states.

But with the Supreme Court’s historic ruling to legalize gay marriage nationwide, Dunham took to Twitter on Friday to share her excitement, including hinting that she could be ready to walk down the aisle.

After sharing messages of support, including joking, “Weddings are about to get a lot less boring,” she then tweeted her musician beau directly.

“Get on it, yo…” Dunham wrote, implying she’s ready for him to pop the question.

During a March appearance on Ellen DeGeneres’ talk show, she explained why she and Antonoff, whom she has dated since 2012, have not yet tied the knot.

“It’s something that the idea of having a celebration that can’t be fully shared among all the people in my life and all the people that we love just doesn’t really feel like a celebration at all,” Dunham said.

“So until that’s something that everyone can join into with no sense of being left out on any level, politically, emotionally, it’s just not something that we’re going to do.”

Dunham, 29, also had a very personal reason for why she wanted to wait, telling Howard Stern last year that “I wanna wait … my sister’s gay and it just doesn’t feel good to me to do something she can’t do.”

While Antonoff has not yet responded to his girlfriend’s tweet, he did celebrate what the decision meant for same-sex couples.

“Marriage includes adoption rights, tax benefits/general benefits and over 1000 more rights and benefits. this is survival for many couples,” he tweeted.
