VALERY HACHE/AFP/Getty Images(NEW YORK) — The star of the USA series White Collar, Matt Bomer, officially came out as gay on Saturday, People magazine reported.

Bomer, who plays con-artist-turned-FBI-helper Neal Caffrey on the hit series, publically thanked his partner Simon Halls and their three children as he accepted an honor at the Steve Chase Humanitarian Awards. Bomer picked up an award for his efforts in the fight against HIV/AIDS, saying, “I’d really especially like to thank my beautiful family: Simon, Kitt, Walker, Henry.”

Bomer had earlier decided not to comment on speculation surrounding his love life, telling Details magazine in 2010, “I don’t care about that at all. I’m completely happy and fulfilled in my personal life.”

Partner Simon Halls is a publicist in Hollywood, representing actors such as Neil Patrick Harris and Glee creator, Ryan Murphy. Bomer is set to guest star on an upcoming episode of Glee in April.
