Desperate Housewives Star Tuc Watkins Comes Out as Gay
Life is good for one TV star.
Tuc Watkins, who has starred on Desperate Housewives and One Life to Live, has come out as gay, according to TV Guide.
Tuc reveals the news to Marie Osmond in an interview that airs April 29 on her Hallmark Channel chatter, Marie.
And because that wasn't enough of a reveal, Tuc went on to divulge that he recently welcomed twin boys through a surrogate. His sons, Catchen and Curtis, are now four months old.
Tuc says that becoming a dad has been a lifelong dream for him.
"A lot of people at some point in their lives think, 'Am I going to be a parent? Do I want to be a parent?'" Tuc says. "And when I was young, I knew three things: I knew I was gay, I knew one day I was gonna be a dad, and I knew that Gene Wilder's Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory was going to be the best movie of all time."
"So far, I've been right about all three," he adds. Suddenly, we have a craving for an Everlasting Gobstopper.
His boys are just now starting to laugh, which "makes all those midnight feedings totally worth it," Tuc says.
Tuc began his acting career as David Vickers on One Life to Live. He reprises his role when the soap returns with new episodes online on Monday.
He also played Susan's neighbor Bob Hunter on Desperate Housewives and recently appeared in episodes of Parks & Recreation and Franklin & Bash. Apparently, he loves shows with ampersands in the title.
We wish the happy family all the best! And we hope his sons grow up to be better behaved than the kids in Willy Wonka.
