When Maria Bello first met Clare Munn, she had an "immediate connection."
"I didn't think of it as romantic or sexual," Bello says in a New York Times column published Sunday titled Coming Out As A Modern Family.

The actress has a 12-year-old son, Jackson, from her former relationship with Dan McDermott and says she struggled with how to tell her only child about her relationship with a woman.
