Pink Parenting, looks at 35 year-old Hollywood actor Matt Bomer. Matt is the star of critically-acclaimed US drama White Collar, now in its fourth season. Perhaps more importantly, together with his partner, Hollywood publicist Simon Halls, he is also father to three surrogate-born boys, Kit (born 2005) and twins Walker and Henry (born 2008).
In particular, Louisa looks at Matt’s remarkable ability for making surrogacy look effortless, as well as discussing the likely legal hurdles that intended parents must navigate when building their own family. In addition, Louisa’s retelling of Matt’s coming-out, at an awards ceremony in early 2012, makes this piece even more timely, in the week when Matt’s Flightplan co-star, Hollywood A-lister Jodie Foster, similarly came-out during her acceptance speech at the 2013 Golden Globe Awards.
he popularity of shows like NBC’s The New Normal (which centres around an LA-based gay couple and their surrogate, and on which Matt guest-starred last year) suggests Hollywood might finally be coming to terms with the reality of surrogacy and gay parenting and Matt Bomer is riding the very front of that wave of change.
