Ryan Murphy, co-creator of "Glee," "American Horror Story" and NBC's new show "The New Normal" just became a father, according to a report.
Murphy, 47, and David Miller, his husband of more than five months, told family members and friends via email that they welcomed a baby boy named Logan Phineas Miller Murphy on the morning of December 24 -- Christmas Eve, according to E! Online, which added that message contained a picture of the newborn lying inside a Christmas stocking. A spokesperson for Murphy had no immediate comment.
The mother of their reported new child was not revealed in E! Online's report, which was published on December 26. Murphy's latest TV show, "The New Normal," is a comedy about a male gay couple about to become parents to a baby born to a surrogate woman. The showrunner told Vogue magazine in an interview published in mid-September that he and Miller wanted kids and were "exploring surrogacy," adding: "I thought if I don't do this ... I'm 46 ... I will really, really regret it."
Murphy and Miller, a photographer, wed in Provincetown, Massachusetts on the 4th of July. In 2004, following a Supreme Court ruling, the state became the first to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples. The Boston Globe reported that the two men celebrated their marriage by watching Patti Lupone perform at a local theater. The actress had a cameo on the season 2 finale of "Glee."
Murphy and Miller were friends for years before they became involved romantically. Murphy told The Hollywood Reporter in an interview carried out two weeks after his wedding: "After years and years of dating [other] people, we were like, 'What are we doing? We're the same age, we want kids, let's try it.' Thank God it worked."
The two live in Beverly Hills, California with their two dogs in a lavish home, where they had hosted a fundraiser for President Barack Obama months before the November election.
"Since being with David, Ryan has just opened his heart up to love so much," Vogue quoted "Glee" star Lea Michele as saying. "In the past few months, I have seen such a joy and excitement in Ryan. And I just know that deep down they are going to be the most incredible parents. I am incredibly jealous that I am not their daughter. Because the Murphy household would be my dream."
