Murphy and Miller first met in the '90s at Muse, a gay spot in Los Angeles. The duo immediately took to each other and forged a friendship that would last for over ten years.

After 15 years of a platonic relationship, Murphy and Miller decided to take their relationship to the next level and soon started dating. 

The couple tied the knot in 2012. At the time, gay marriage was not yet legalized, but the two went on with their love, hoping for the best.

In 2013, only a year after getting married, the Supreme court struck down the Defense of Marriage act and ruled that gay marriages be allowed and legalized in California, Murphy's home state.

Speaking about this, Murphy called the ruling heroic, adding that Hollywood and television played a key role in the advocacy for marriage equality.

He credited the likes of Ellen Degeneres, Neil Patrick Harris, and Jill Solloway for leading conversations about the LGBTQ community and same-sex marriage.

At the time they got married, Miller and Murphy were expecting a child. Six months after the wedding, the couple welcomed their first child, Logan Phineas Miller Murphy, in December 2012.

During a public appearance in 2019, Murphy revealed that doctors had declared Theodore cancer-free. 

The couple announced the birth of Logan via email sent to their family and friends. They reportedly included a picture of the newborn rocking a Christmas stocking.

In October 2014, Miller and Murphy became parents again when their second child, Ford Theodore Miller Murphy, was born. The couple simply couldn't have been happier.

In August 2020, Miller and Murphy had another addition to their beautiful family when their youngest son, Griffin Sullivan Miller Murphy, came into the world. 


Murphy announced on his Instagram page when he posted an adorable picture of their three boys together. He accompanied it with a caption revealing the newborn's weight at birth.

With three beautiful boys, a blissful marriage, and successful careers, Miller and Murphy have managed to create a remarkable life for themselves. But not without some troubles.



In 2016, when Ford was only eighteen months old, he was diagnosed with Neuroblastoma, a form of cancer reportedly proven to be most common in children under the age of ten.

Doctors found an abdominal tumor as big as a tennis ball during a routine checkup, leading him to undergo major surgery and several difficult medical procedures.


In celebration of Ford's fourth birthday in 2018, Murphy took to Instagram, sharing a post where he gave fans an update of the little one's health. At the time, Murphy noted that Ford had remained strong since he was diagnosed and was thriving.

He also stated that they were excited to see their son's fourth birthday. To show his gratitude, Murphy and his family donated $10 million to the Children's Hospital, Los Angeles, where Ford was being treated.

Also, a wing of the hospital was dedicated in Ford's name. According to Murphy, this was done especially to help children who suffer a similar fate but do not have the required resources.



During a public appearance in 2019, Murphy revealed that doctors had declared Theodore cancer-free. He then opened up about the lessons their son's he and Miller learned from the experience.

Murphy stressed that cancer is a disease that affects not only those suffering from it but their loved ones as well. With this in mind, he urged people to be more proactive and prepared to fight the illness.

Today, Murphy and Miller have a blissful life with their kids, and if there's anything the famous couple will forever be grateful for— it's the beautiful gift of fatherhood.
