Queer Eye fashion expert Tan France is going to have to add some more red, white, and blue to his wardrobe!

On Tuesday, the U.K.-born designer shared the exciting news on Instagram that he has officially become a U.S. citizen.

"For me, this is monumental," France wrote of the big day. "It’s something I’ve been working towards for literally 20 years, which makes this all the more emotional."

In the photos, France is dressed in a navy blazer, cuffed blue jeans, and a pair of black sneakers, as he holds his hand up to take an oath.

Also present for the milestone was France's husband, Rob, and the two made sure to snap a shot in front of an American flag.

Rob later expressed his excitement for his husband by commenting on the post, "FINALLY!!!!!! ❤️❤️❤️❤️😭😭😭."

The Fab Five member also posed in front of the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services building sign to show off his accomplishment.

As an official U.S. citizen, one of the first things France said he will do is make sure he can vote in the upcoming election.

"And now, I will exercise my constitutional right as an American. Today, I will register to vote, and vote for the change I wish to see in OUR nation," he wrote.
