“Family means everything to me and having one of my own is something that I have wanted in my heart for my entire life,” he continued. “Though it’s taken me longer than most to get there, I cannot wait for what I envision will be the most rewarding chapter yet.”

“It’s a boy,” he said. “It’s a boy and I got to tell you something, I cannot wait to meet this boy.”

“When I was growing up and when we were growing up … I just never thought it would be possible as a gay man to grow up and have a family,” he continued. “And here we are in 2018, almost [2019], and anything’s possible. And I’m so grateful to a wonderful surrogate that I’m working with.”
