He has not mentioned if they are just in a relationship or if he is married to his boyfriend.
The possibility that his partner was a boyfriend he was dating or the husband he got married to, was hinted at in a 2020 interview with The Telegraph when he talked about having children.
I would need to do it in a way which was either through adoption or surrogacy, because of the nature of my relationship. I’d have to sit down very pragmatically and work it out.
Many assumed then, that by the nature of his relationship, he meant one with another male.
