Matt Bomer, the star of USA's White Collar, quietly came out over the weekend, thanking his partner and children at the Steve Chase Humanitarian Awards on Saturday.

Bomer, 34, received the New Generation Arts and Activism Award for his activism in the fight against HIV/AIDS at the awards show, and paid tribute to his partner, publicist Simon Halls, and their three children in his acceptance speech.

"I'd really especially like to thank my beautiful family: Simon, Kit, Walker, Henry," he said onstage at the show. "Thank you for teaching me what unconditional love is. You will always be my proudest accomplishment."

When questioned about his sexuality in a 2010 interview with Details, Bomer responded: "I don't care about [rumors] at all. I'm completely happy and fulfilled in my personal life."
