WWE superstar Darren Young is walking around with a smile on his face.
Just a day after coming out of the closet, the athlete announced on The Today Show, “I’m in love.” He wouldn’t talk much about his boyfriend, but TMZ reveals his name is Nick.
“I’ve been suppressing these feelings for so long in my life,” Darren said, expressing relief that he settled this issue before his 30th birthday.
Young said he was “terrified” about being gay damaging his career, but everyone has been supportive including WWE Chairman Vince McMahon.
He also got advice from Jason Collins, the NBA veteran who came out in Sports Illustrated in May, but more than anything Jason was a good role model on how to feel comfortable about coming out.
