They say sometimes life imitates art, and “One Life to Live’s” Tuc Watkins‘ (David Vickers) latest reveal sounds a whole lot like his former “Desperate Housewives” stint as Bob Hunter: He’s a gay dad! And in an interview airing on Hallmark’s “Marie,” he’ll be opening up for the very first time about his exciting new journey into parenthood.

As TV Guide first reported, the actor just welcomed twins Catchen and Curtis into his life via surrogate, and he’s taken on the title of “dad” solo, meaning he’s a single father! That doesn’t leave him with many z’s, but he says the twins’ heart melting behavior (giggling, for one), “makes all those midnight feedings totally worth it.”

To hear more about Watkin’s life as a single new dad, and to hear what his sister, Courtney Watkins (host of the Disney web series “The Possibility Shop”) feels about her brother’s journey, be sure to tune in to “Marie” on Monday, April 29. But don’t forget to also tune in and see the beloved actor reprise his role as David Vickers on “OLTL,” which debuts on iTunes, Hulu and Hulu Plus that same day!
