“I got married to my best friend & have a loving partner to continue building my life with,” he added.

I tumbled with the icon of icons @simonebiles , we got a lovely Pablo dog @austinpetsalive & @karamo @tanfrance @antoni @bobby & I FaceTimed to celebrate our Host Emmy nomination amongst other catch-ups … miss our @queereye community! Last but not least the last time I got to see my mom who I’m so so proud of all she’s done this year & can’t wait to see her again soon.”
