Matt Bomer was one of the few actors lucky to begin their career early, enjoying a tremendous amount of success. He is also a witness to true love—his relationship with Simon Halls and their three gorgeous kids. Meet them.
Matt Bomer's father was a successful sports player who worked with the Dallas Cowboys. His son, also skilled in football, took a liking to acting at a young age.
Bomer's childhood was full of love, and he was raised by church-going parents who made sure to provide a sane and healthy space for their children.
Bomer grew up unaware of health crisis challenges such as AIDS because he lived a somewhat sheltered life; he was also unaware of his true sexuality until he immersed himself in Larry Kramer's "The Normal Heart."
After reading the book, a text focused on the struggles of two gay lovers (an activist and a New York Times style reporter), the injustice against men who loved each other, and their seemingly inconsequential deaths, a new man was born.
Bomer got familiar with the struggles of homophobic men but also became acquainted with acting. At 17, he left his school's football team to act in the Alley Theatre.
The determined teenager later left his hometown in Texas to pursue a career in acting. Still, he studied at the renowned Carnegie Mellon theater in Pittsburgh first, after which he started to pad his resume.
While Bomer acquired a new set of classical acting skills, he also reinvented himself, accepted his sexuality, and was proud to be associated as a man who was interested in men.
His friends accepted him and became a part of his movement—to be widely accepted. Likewise, his family, but according to the actor, it took longer for his religious family to choose love over their faith. Still, they accepted his choices.
Bomer has also featured in TV series and other onscreen productions including "Guiding Light," "True Calling, "Chuck," "Traveler," "White Collar," and he starred in Ryan Murphy's "The Normal Heart" based on the book.
As his fame increased, many poked into his personal life and background, and rumors that he is gay made the rounds. In 2010, Bomer addressed it in an interview; he maintained that the news did not bother him.
At this time, he was already in a fairy tale romance with Simon Halls, and they shared three adorable boys. He was also increasingly vocal about marriage equality and was actively pushing for AIDs advocacy.
The same year news of Bomer's sexuality was made public; he married the love of his life. Their wedding was an intimate affair held in New York and is described as a very chill event by the actor, who gushed about the big day.
He revealed that it was a blissful experience exchanging vows in front of an audience that supports and loves them unconditionally, which was good for their family.
WHO IS THE MAN AFTER BOMER'S HEART?
The man after the actor's heart is Simon Halls. The couple has been together for some years and are a very private duo. Halls, like his husband, is also a successful man.
He is an influential publicist and concerns himself with managing media campaigns for Neil Patrick Harris and Jude Law.
Halls stays away from his partner's business and does not represent Bomer despite his knowledge of the media and entertainment business.
Although he seeks counsel from his intelligent partner, the actor explained that they limit the amount of work stuff discussed in their home because they prefer to focus on engaging in events that directly concern their kids and family.
PARENTHOOD FOR THESE LOVELY PAIR
Both Bomer and Halls are appreciative of their parenthood. They have an older son and two twins, and the trio ware born via surrogate.
In 2008, Halls expressed that parenthood was fun and that many people, including the parents at his first son's school, were receptive when they noticed that the couple would be adding twin boys to the family via surrogacy.
A few years later, Bomer explained that he would champion his kids to have a normal childhood, similar to his, despite their backgrounds.
The father of three added that he was excited to be born at a time like this when the world is more willing to accept people irrespective of their backgrounds, sexualities, and genders.
He is also grateful to be a father because, since experiencing parenthood, he has been able to restructure his schedule and life patterns.
Now, rather than worry about work stuff or what the media projects more often, he is concerned with giving his kids optimum attention and fulfilling fatherly duties, which involves spending time with the boys.
Some of these moments are documented and shared online. Although it does not happen very often, it proves that Bomer does not mind sharing his happiness with the world despite the commitment to staying under the radar.
HOW GREAT IS THEIR MARRIAGE?
Even in their bid to hide very important details concerning their marriage, Bomer is very proud and confidently talks about his happy family life in public.
In 2012, during one of his activist movements, at an AIDS Project event in Palm Springs, he poured out a heart of gratitude to his "beautiful family" and mentioned his partner and their three kids, Kit, Walker, and Henry.
At the event, Halls was extremely happy that his husband appreciated their family, and it made him proud to be associated with Bomer.
Thankfully, Halls has nothing to worry about as his lover is conscious about making their marriage work and preserving it forever. The "The Normal Heart" alum explained that he learned the concept of their successful union from his grandparents.
This has been the leading formula to his binding love with Halls. They also prioritize their family's happiness and safety, which makes them a couple worthy of emulating.
