A gay teen decided to come out to his mother, but he had no idea that she had a secret of her own to share.
In a video posted to YouTube, Hayden Smith nervously sets up a hidden camera to record the conversation he’s about to have with his mother. Then, he calls her into the room.
“I’m gay,” he says.
She replies: “Are you? That’s ok. That’s very brave of you to tell me that. Thank you for telling me. It’s not going to make me love you any less, at all. OK? Your choice is your choice. And I accept you any way you are, you’re still my boy. You’re still my son.”
Later in the video, she says: “As you have been so open with me, I’ll tell you a secret, too. I’ve had a girlfriend.”
