On an interview with the Today.com Darren pacified the rumor of his gay character  by revealing his sexual preference to be straight and said:

"I think it's more empowering to everybody, including myself, if I'm articulate about identifying myself as a straight male playing a gay character, in the Hollywood. Ultimately, that's more powerful for both communities.It doesn't matter if I'm gay or straight.The real cool thing is I was inadvertently raised by the gay community.I was staying out much later than most kids after shows, going to restaurants. I was friends with older guys they were who I looked up to. It wasn't until later that I put together that they were gay."

His explanation further elaborated when he disclosed about his ongoing romance with the musician Mia Swier in June 2013, the speculation finally terminated. Darren and Mia began a long distance relationship since 2010 but only revealed about their affair publicly in 2013 after Mia migrated to New York from California. Since then Mia has forever clung with her man in events like Dancing With The Stars (2013)
