Lee Pace Confirms He Is Officially Married to Matthew Foley & Wants to Start a Family
Lee Pace has officially confirmed that he is a married man!
During a recent interview for the most recent cover story of GQ Hype, the 43-year actor (and our favorite house-building, intergalactic space emperor daddy) opened up about his private life and talked about his relationship with Thom Browne communications executive Matthew Foley — including the fact that they are married.
“I said to my friend, Nick, ‘You know a lot of people, who do you have for me?’ And it luckily has worked out,” Pace told the publication about being introduced to Foley via a mutual friend.
“What I’ll say about being married, it was once described to me as an endless sleepover with your weirdest friend. In our experience, that is absolutely true. If you’ve found one person you can be weird around, hold on tight.”
As for the future? Well, Pace wants to be more than just a daddy for the thirsty eyes of the internet. He also wants to start a family with Foley in the future.
“I’d love to have kids,” he revealed. “I think there’s nothing better than little kids running around.”
Though it’s not clear exactly when Pace and Foley tied the know, Out pointed out last September that Pace was wearing a gold band around his wedding finger while walking the red carpet of the 2021 Met Gala (while also wearing a Thom Browne short suit!).
Pace also posted a pic of Foley for the first time on his Instagram account during a couples camping trip earlier that year in August of 2021.
Pace has been notoriously private about his personal life from the early stages of his career (especially after having to publicly come out in a 2018 interview with W where he was asked directly about his sexuality), so it’s nice to see him get more candid and personal about his love while doing press.
Congrats to the happy couple!
