Maria Bello officially comes out

By Tiffani Cordner,

Actress Maria Bello has revealed that she is gay in a lengthy op-ed piece she wrote for The New York Times website on Friday, Nov. 29.

E! News is reporting that in the personal account, Bello reveals that she has had a girlfriend and recounts the first time, her son Jackson, with producer Dan McDermott, asked if she was in a relationship with someone else.

"He was right; I was with someone romantically and I hadn't told him. I had become involved with a woman who was my best friend, and, as it happens, a person who is like a godmother to my son." Bello said in the article.

It would be some time before Bello would reveal to her son what was really going on, saying it was important for her to wait for the "right time" before revealing the truth, in order to ensure the news wouldn't effect him in negatively.

In the essay, the Secret Window actress admitted that she was also very sick for a time and worried that she might not survive, though she didn't mention what was wrong.
