Magic Johnson's son E.J. has been in the news after stepping out with his boyfriend in West Hollywood over the weekend, and his famous father reveals that he couldn't be prouder of his 22-year-old boy.
Magic reveals that E.J. came out to his family several years ago, but up until this week he had only told two closest friends. Magic chatted with TMZ and said, "I told him, 'Hey, we are here to support you, man. We're going to love you no matter who you are, what you do. We just want you to love yourself."
"I love E.J. so much, that's my main man," Magic continues. "I think he really wanted to be out. But he was torn ... He just didn't know how. He just said, 'This is my moment. This is my time. I'm happy to share with the world who I am.' And I said, 'Go, E.J., go.' ... This is a good moment for us as a family, and a greater moment for him. Now he's just the bubbly kid we knew again ... I'm behind him a million percent. This is really wonderful for him."
