I am grateful to be able to live my dream every day and grateful to you for coming along for the ride.
And throughout it, I’ve always tried to be as transparent as possible about my life — I overshare and expect everyone to do the same … Tonight, I want you to be the first to know that after many years of careful deliberation, a fair amount of prayers and the benefit of science — if all goes according to plan in about six weeks time I’m going to become a father.
Thanks to a wonderful surrogate who is carrying my future. Family means everything to me and having one of my own is something that I have wanted in my heart for my entire life.
