Coming Out

‘Desperate Housewives’ gay husband Tuc Watkins comes out


Staff Reports

Actor Tuc Watkins, who played gay neighbor Bob Hunter on ABC’s “Desperate Housewives,” reveals for the first time that he is gay in real life, and a single dad.

In an interview with Hallmark Channel’s Marie Osmond — scheduled to air Monday, April 29 — Watkins comes out publicly and tells Osmond that he recently welcomed twins Catchen and Curtis via surrogate.


Watkins is perhaps best know for his role as David Vickers on ABC’s now-cancelled “One Life to Live,” — a role he will reprise when the soap returns as a web series next week.
