Actor Tuc Watkins on Thursday tweeted an adorable picture of himself holding his infant twins.

On Friday, while promoting the return of the soap One Life To Live, Watkins came out gay during an appearance on MARIE, the new syndicated talk show hosted by Marie Osmond.

The 46-year-old actor is best know for his roles playing David Vickers on One Life To Live and Bob Hunter on the ABC nighttime soap Desperate Housewives.

He told Osmond that his Desperate Housewives character paralleled his own life in several ways.

“I played a gay man who was married to his husband, who was trying to adopt a kid,” Watkins said. “And in real life, at this same time, I'm a gay single man who was trying to have a kid through surrogacy. So, life and art were imitating each other.”

He followed up that interview by tweeting a photo of his daughter Catchen sleeping.

Since that time he's tweeted another four pics of his children. The latest features Watkins holding Catchen and Curtis in an oversized chair.

“Who says you can't have fun just sitting around the house?” he tweeted to his more than 3,500 followers.
