SATC's Willie Garson talks adoption plans

02/01/2008 at 09:24 AM ET

His new film Sex and The City: The Movie comes out in May, but the next topic on the agenda for actor Willie Garson, 43, is parenthood. Willie tells People that he is in the beginning steps of adopting a child.

I’m taking parenting class because I’m going to try to adopt a kid. I’ve been getting that all together, and we’ll see. I’m thinking a boy, but with the right kid it doesn’t really matter.

Due to being single, he has met some obstacles in the process, but hopes that it will bring a joyful outcome.

I kind of knew how difficult it was going to be, and it’s pretty difficult. 

When asked if Carrie, played by Sarah Jessica Parker, would have a baby with Mr. Big — new dad Chris Noth — in the movie, Willie was tight lipped.

Oh, I don’t know – I’m not allowed to tell you. Anything could happen. I could become a mom. Kim [Cattrall] becomes a grandfather.

are you sure he is gay in real life? has that been confirmed? i know his character from SATC is gay but I didn’t think Willie Garson was.

I really hope everything works out for him! It is always so frustrating to hear about adoption discrimination when there are so many people willing to love – and SO many children who need them!

Awww, good for him! I wish him luck, his was one of my favorite characters on that show.

Does anyone know if he’s gay? I know he is on the show, but wasn’t sure about real life…..

Sarah’s note: In an article I read on him (can’t remember what, unfortunately), he implied that he is straight.

Good luck to him on his adoption plans! He seems like he would be a good father.

By the way, Willie Garson IS straight. I have the book Sex and the City: Kiss and Tell and it was stated that Sarah Jessica Parker and Willie became friends over 20 years after they were set up on a blind date (yes, they are friends in real life). He also said how difficult and awkward it was to shoot his first gay love scene on the show.

Thanks for the info, Sarah and Kaley!

I hope it works out for him! A loving home for every child!

Kaley, he’s a freaking awesome actor then because I completely thought he was gay (he had a cameo on “Yes, Dear” where he seemed gay too.)

I hope he’s able to adopt, I think anyone that wants to be a parent and will be a good one should be able to.
