In the interview (which airs Monday, April 29 at noon/11c) the 46-year-old father of two tells Marie that ever since childhood there have been a few things that he's known about himself: "I knew I was gay and I knew one day I was going to be a dad," Watkins said.

Watkins' twin children Catchen and Curtis were born via surrogate, and he says despite losing some shut-eye, hearing his kids giggle "makes all those midnight feedings totally worth it."

This news comes ahead of Watkins' reprisal of his One Life to Live role on April 29, where the soap finds its new home on The Online Network.
