Out actor Matt Bomer says raising three boys with his husband Simon Halls is the “greatest gift” he's been given.

Bomer, 37, is best known for playing con artist Neal Caffrey in USA Network's White Collar and a male stripper in the Magic Mike films. He plays one of the Countess' (played by Lady Gaga) lovers in the new season of American Horror Story: Hotel, which premiered Wednesday on FX.

In an interview with men's fashion glossy Details, Bomer was asked about being a father.

“It's great,” he said. “It's the greatest gift I've ever been given. It's the most challenging thing I've ever been thrown. It's something that keeps both of us on our toes every day, especially with three boys, but it's the best thing that's ever happened to me.”

Bomer was also asked about the “status of openly gay actors in Hollywood today?”

“I think it's great,” he answered. “It's amazing what I've seen happen, especially in the past five years. There is a generation growing up now that blows my mind in terms of the equanimity that they bring to every conversation that I have with them and every situation that I'm in with them. There's an entire generation of artists coming up who don't really care what your personal life is. They want to know what you're going to bring to the material. So, I'm very optimistic and hopeful when it comes to the future.”
