Sex and the City star Willie Garson is in the process of finalizing the adoption of his 8-year old son, Nathan. Garson had attended an Adoption Fair with the intention of adopting a toddler, but knew as soon as he met Nathan that he was his son.
“It’s like a pet fair – as horrifying as you can imagine,” he recalls. “It was really hard. The 16-year-old fat, ugly kid, who has probably been to 30 of these, knows he’s not going to get adopted. Like everything, cute wins.”
To that end, Willie was shocked that his son was still in the system. “I couldn’t believe my kid was actually available for adoption,” says the doting dad. “He’s so cute and sweet.”
Willie makes sure that Nathan’s biological mother has a relationship with the boy. “For many reasons, she couldn’t care for him,” he explains, “but I will never let her not see him.”
Willie will take Nathan with him when he relocates to New York later this year to begin filming Sex and the City 2. The relocation might be a bit of an adjustment for Nathan. Apparently the two are able to lead a fairly quiet existence in L.A., but the entire Sex and the City cast “can’t walk 20 feet without being mobbed” in New York City.
