Screen Shot 2014-10-22 at 1.29.11 PMWe didn’t see this one coming. Now that his legal worries seem to be behind him for the moment, X-Men director and lover of twinks Bryan Singer is about to become a daddy.

No, that’s not what his lovers will seductively call him (call it a gut feeling but we don’t think he’s into that). He’s expecting his first child with Queer As Folk actress Michelle Clunie.

Bryan’s rep Simon Halls told E! News:

“Best friends for 25 years, mother and father are both very excited about the upcoming birth and look forward to co-parenting the child together. The pair have been planning this baby for years and have been trying for the last two.”

In even more shocking news, E! also reports that Michelle is not acting as surrogate, meaning the two conceived naturally.

Bryan told Out earlier this year:

“I’m quite bisexual. In the last five years, I’ve had two girlfriends—one for two years, one for eight months…In the end, it’s probably going to be a guy. I emotionally lean towards male relationships, so I’m happy to say I’m gay, too, if it’s a one-syllable, easy answer.”

Funny how we’ve never once heard of him trotting around town with a woman, but hey, maybe that’s just media bias for you. Or, you know, maybe not.

It’s worth noting that Halls also announced the pregnancy in the same way you’d expect a big-budget blockbuster to be teased:

“I can confirm that Michelle Clunie and Bryan Singer are happily expecting a baby together in early 2015,” he told press.

Coming soon to a delivery room near you.
