One Life to Live’s Tuc Watkins (David Vickers) shocked some when on Monday’s episode of MARIE, he revealed he is a gay father of newborn twins! Since the week played out, the already popular actor has become even more popular, if that’s even possible! And in this new interview with Entertainment Tonight, Tuc discusses why it was important to at this point go public with his story!

Tuc on going public now because of his children:  “Here’s the deal, some actors are genuinely private people. When straight actors are private, it’s perceived as having integrity. When gay actors are private, it’s perceived as shame. It’s a double standard, but I’m just so excited to be a dad, I really couldn’t help but want to talk about that.”

Tuc on having twins via surrogacy and the process of it: “I had such a great experience, it’s all I want to talk about. An amazing woman who lives in Texas was my surrogate, and with her husband and three kids, it’s like we were all a team. I had such a great experience that it really is all I want to talk about to anyone who will listen.”

Later in the interview, Tuc revealed their may be someone interloping in his relationship with Dorian (Robin Strasser) when he related, “The live of David’s life is Dorian Lord, hands down, but David often gets distracted. And he’s about to run into a big distraction.”

So what do you think of Tuc coming forward about his children via surrogacy?  Who do you think will be the big distraction for David?  Could it be new “swinger” Rama (Shenaz Treasury)?  Weigh-in!

Congrats to the actor on his family. As to story? This viewer has ZERO interest in David’s latest distraction. For me there is no entertainment in the idea of Dorian being dumped or cuckolded by her much younger husband for a much, much younger woman. It just stinks. More often than not the writing, the story is all about David, his “distractions, ” or his latest escapade with no thought to Dorian. Sorry, Mr. Fairman, but I have no interest in watching Rama and David flirting, falling in love, sleeping together or whatever it is especially since it is clear… Read more »

This is very true. Dorian did it back in the day all the time, with Joey, with that guy with the long, blond hair that rode a bike. Why not now????

So happy and proud of Tuc! Such a beautiful thing this beautiful man has done. Luck all the way to Tuc. I raise a 15, and 4 year old, and the last thing it is is easy. Takes real love, and someone who wants to give that love to a child, or children deserve all the support in the world. Proud of u Tuc 😉

And to Jen above, Shenaz Treasury (Rama) is a 41 year old woman who is only 5 years younger than Tuc (David). I like that the shows are being as real as the real world is. Not everything is how TV networks paint them. I look forward to watching Rama and David. Will b good story.

Bring back A Martinez for Dorian, Rama can have David. I think the actress is in her early 30s,, by the way. I hope you enjoy the story, I’ll fast forward.

People have affairs, but I don’t care to see the character of Dorian cheated on by David, her worst pairing. Many Dorian fans have hoped for years for another romance for Dorian. Hopefully this puts an end to David and Dorian.

I was gonna say, there is no way she could be 41! But I’ve been fooled before by people looking WAY younger than they really are.

Wow, how I misread 10 years! Lol I am mistaken on that. But I like the A Martinez for Dorian! Good idea. I think they need to bring David down a simi tone and get him into a serious storyline somewhere else with someone else.

I think it is great. His story is similar to The New Normal (which I think is underrated for the quality in the writing and acting)

We never really know if life imitates art or if art imitates life. Jury still out.

Good for him.

Until this article, I had absolutely NO idea that Tuc was gay or a new father, but learning this only makes me love him more! The fact that he can proudly come out, especially for his children, is incredible and while the world still has a lot of work to do in fighting for the rights of LGBT community members, I can not be more proud of those in the limelight who do come out like this. Congrats to Tuc on his beautiful children and a happy, free life! 🙂
