The self-outings of Sam Champion and Orlando Cruz have received support from Ben Affleck and Ricky Martin.

Martin, who came out gay in 2010, tweeted support for fellow Puerto Rican Cruz, who last week released a statement in which he said that he is “a proud gay man.” In his message written in Spanish, Martin called the 31-year-old boxer courageous.

“How happy I am for you! Very Strong! Much peace to you and yours! Hugs!” he wrote.

Appearing on ABC's Good Morning America, Affleck congratulated the show's weather anchor, Sam Champion, on his recently announced engagement to Rubem Robierb.

“Oh, I want to congratulate Sam on his upcoming nuptials,” Affleck said on Monday.

“It's to our shame that you can't get married in every state of the union, but one day I hope you will be able to,” he added. “It's very exciting, though. I was very inspired. Moving love story.”
