Matt Bomer publicly came out as gay two years ago, but he actually married his longtime partner, Simon Halls, well before that.
The "White Collar" star, 36, has worn wearing a wedding band since 2011, but until now, he's never publicly acknowledged that he's a married man. The duo wed in 2011 and share three sons, 6-year-old twins and an 8-year-old.
The news broke in this month's issue of Details, while the 36-year-old actor was discussing his latest role in the HBO movie, "The Normal Heart." Bomer revealed that he owes the film's playwright, Larry Kramer, a longtime LGBT activist, for more than just a role – he owes him his marriage. "I wouldn't have a lot of the rights I have today if it wasn't for people like Larry."
"On some level, Larry probably saved my life," Bomer continued in the Details interview. "He happened to be on set the day DOMA was overturned. In many ways, he's responsible for DOMA being overturned in the first place. He's an Abraham Lincoln figure — he has affected the cultural landscape of this country, and not always popularly."
The "Magic Mike" actor confirmed his sexuality in February 2012 at the Desert AIDS Project's Steve Chase Humanitarian Awards in Palm Springs, when he included a special message about his family during his acceptance speech.
"I'd really especially like to thank my beautiful family: Simon, Kit, Walker, Henry," he said. "Thank you for teaching me what unconditional love is. You will always be my proudest accomplishment. God bless you."
Bomer and Halls, the co-founder of Slate PR, purchased a home together in the Hancock Park neighborhood of Los Angeles in 2011 and raise their family there. In 2008, Halls talked to W magazine about parenting and said, "We are very committed." The notoriously private pair rarely speaks about their personal life.
Bomer will play a gay man dying of AIDS during the early days of the epidemic in director Ryan Murphy's adaptation of Kramer's play, which premieres on HBO on May 25.
