The hunky 29-year-old who is also a musician, revealed in an emotional essay he is homosexual. Not only that, Dekker also wrote he is a married fella!
Dekker came out as gay via Twitter and went onto say he tied the knot earlier this year. The actor who revealed in the past he was a victim of sexual molestation said in a 2010 interview about his sexuality: “I’ve only really had relationships with women, but I’m certainly not closed to it.”
Dekker’s sexual preference had been a subject of speculation for years. The Heroes and Backstrom actor, decided to be open about his sexuality after writer, Brian Fuller tried to out him last week.
Thomas Alexander Dekker was born December 28, 1987 in Las Vegas, Nevada. He is the son of Hilary Williams and the late David John Ellis Dekker.
Both of his parents were into acting. His mother, who is Welsh, is described as a pianist, acting coach and singer. His father was an opera singer and actor.

He also writes and produces his own music which he labels as ‘electrofolk.’
Dekker unfortunately kept private the identity of his husband only saying the two were married in April. Something tells us his hubby’s name won’t be kept a secret for too long, in Hollywood is pretty much impossible.
Until then, we wish Dekker and whoever his husband is, all the best!
