In an interview with Out magazine’s June-July issue, the 36-year-old opens up for the first time about the nuptials, telling the magazine that “it was very chill.”

“Very small — only our nearest and dearest,” he adds. “There’s a security, a validity of knowing that it’s legal. It’s hard to put into words. It’s just a feeling, I guess — something about saying vows in front the people around you who love and support you. I think it was good for our family.”

As the father, the actor says he “felt a responsibility” to all of them to be out and “able to live with integrity and not have some strange split psychology of this is who my dad is at home, and this is who he is to the public.”

Bomer, 36, came out publicly in 2012 when he thanked his partner in his acceptance speech for a humanitarian award. The actor and Halls are proud parents to sons KitWalker and Henry.
