Aww! This is so amazing!!
After years of speculation and many, many denials it seems that famed Australian Olympic swimmer Ian Thorpe has FINALLY come out as gay!!
The 31-year-old hottie sat down for a taped interview last month with Sir Michael Parkinson for Australian Channel 10 and the swimmer confirms his sexuality for the first time EVER!
The interview is set to air Sunday night down under, but reportedly Ian opens up about dating girls in the past, gives a full admission about his sexuality, and explains how he suffered from severed depression by denying his true self to the world!
This is totally a HUGE deal because Ian's been denying rumors about his sexuality since he rose to swimming fame back in 2000!
So, like we said, SO brave of him!
We're SO proud of you Ian and we can't WAIT To see the whole interview!
