“I guess it was kind of just when I realized. I have two kids and I thought that was the direction I was going in. Realizing then was just my time. Some people know straight away, I didn’t and it took me a minute to understand that and accept that and then come out,” he told the outlet. “It was also really important to me that the kids were comfortable before I expressed that, and that they understood and were in a good place. It was just time. Everybody has their story and mine was later on.”
