The man 80,000 fans tirelessly petitioned to see as the smouldering Christian Grey has revealed that he's been married to his long term boyfriend for years.

E! Online has whipped back the sheets on Matt Bomer and Simon Halls' undercover union and unveiled that the pair have been married since 2011.

It should come as so surprise that the eyebleedingly handsome star decided to tie the knot with his long-term partner though. The couple already have 3 sons together; 2 six-year-old twins and an 8-year-old.

Bomer may have lost out on the chance to be the leading man in [Fifty Shades of Grey](movie:391697), but the actor is starring in roles that are much closer to his heart.

The 36-year-old star is currently playing a gay man dying of AIDS in new movie [The Normal Heart](movie:885778) which is based on a play by Larry Kramer. Bomer passionately explained to Details that;

I wouldn't have a lot of the rights I have today if it wasn't for people like Larry," he told Details. I just wanted to be involved with the project in some capacity. I didn't care what my part was

The actor also revealed that the play was deeply important to him as he studied it in school when he was still uncertain of his sexuality.

Will anyone be seeing Matt Bomer in The Normal Heart, or do you only have eyes for him as Christian Grey?
