Tuc: Out and proud

It seems Tuc Watkins' role as Bob Hunter, one half of a gay couple trying to adopt children on "Desperate Housewives," was actually a really good fit.

Tuc, who also plays David Vickers on "One Live to Live," opened up to Marie Osmond on her show, "Marie," that he is gay in real life, Us Weekly reports. This is the first time that Tuc has spoken publicly about being gay.

Another big piece of news that Tuc told Marie? He's a father!

He welcomed twin sons Catchen and Curtis via surrogate about four months ago, and they're already giggling. "[That] makes all those midnight feedings totally worth it."

Tuc explains, "A lot of people at some point in their lives think, 'Am I going to be a parent? Do I want to be a parent?' And when I was young, I knew three things: I knew I was gay, I knew one day I was gonna be a dad, and I knew that Gene Wilder's 'Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory' was going to be the best movie of all time. So far, I've been right about all three."

Say what?

"[The] weirdest compliment I've ever received on my eyes was that I looked like an alien or that I look like a doll. You know, I'll take whatever I can get as far as compliments go."
