SATC's Willie Garson welcomes a son

05/28/2008 at 03:48 PM ET

Williegarson_jims_55009941_max_cbbSex and the City star Willie Garson happily shared with E! News that the adoption proceedings he began earlier this year are nearly finished. Willie, 44, will be a new father to a son from the Los Angeles area, and he couldn’t be more excited — or exhausted — with the adoption process, which he explained was anything but easy, especially for a single man such as himself.

It’s a big deal. It’s a big decision. It should be difficult. It’s not like buying a suit or another pair of glasses.

When asked if his boy may participate in any playdates with other celebrities and their children, Willie joked,

If I like their kids. My kid’s going to be the coolest.

Yay!! I think it’s really great that he is adopting! I know men feel that tug for children just as much as women, It’s nice that he has chosen to answer that tug despite how difficult the process is for a single man, very exciting!!!

Congrats to him! He seems like he’ll be a wonderful, caring dad. I can just picture him and SJP taking the kids on a playdate to central park, ala Carrie and Stanford! :0)

Congratulations to him!

I think this is fantastic news and I’m sure he will make an excellent father. It’s truly touching to hear this kind of story, and I hope it goes some way to breaking down the horrible stereotypes (that sadly still exist) to do with both single parent adoptions, and in the larger sense, a single man adopting. Congratulations to Willie, and I hope we see some photos soon!
