The same can be said about Gavin Houston who calls him fortunate to be the father of his daughter and cites her as his primary source of inspiration.
So let us have a look at Gavin and his relationship with his daughter!
Taking Inspirations From Daughter
American actor Gavin, who has been there and done that with regards to his career reveals his daughter as his prime source of inspiration. In an interview with Tyler Perry, he said that his daughter is what inspires him.
That is good to know as his daughter keeps him up and running for his works and it is also understandable that Gavin is willing to do whatever it takes to keep his daughter happy.
Even he's busy with commercials; he makes a point to single out his source of inspiration; a feat challenging to maintain over time. Gavin's daughter, for her part, also reciprocates the love as suggested by Gavin's 2013 tweet.

Now that his daughter is approaching her late teens and will leave for college, he will have to find a replacement for visiting haunted houses and corn mazes in Halloween.
For people who wonder about Gavin's wedding, no significant information could be found. Maybe he wants to keep his personal life to himself and not openly share his private matters.
For now, we can say that Gavin has an adorable relationship with his daughter and that is what keeps him motivated regarding his professional life as the love of his daughter drives him and his passion.
Is A Gay Or Has A Girlfriend To Shut Those Rumors?
Night time soap "The Haves and the Have Nots" is what Gavin is more famous for.
In the very soap, Gavin plays a black gay man named Jeffrey Harrington who is consumed by the fear of losing everything because of his sexuality and his occasional outbursts, and you have a character whose plot continues to thicken with every episode as his mother (Angela Robinson) on the soap is not willing to accept his sexuality.
In his 2017 interview with Oprah, the Brooklyn native described his on-screen gay character's transformation from a shy and quiet guy to confident rebel as "coming of age." He explained by saying:
"Jeffery definitely was tortured for a long time. He now has more knowledge of who he is, so he's now able to put his foot down on certain things."
The role he has portrayed in the soap is done with such art that people often speculate and accuse him of being a gay. Also, him not revealing anything about his relationships with girls is what prompts such rumors.
But let us not jump into any major decisions without specific proofs and wait for Gavin to make an official announcement regarding his sexuality.
However, if you follow him over on his social sites like Twitter, he has posted some tweets denoting his girlfriend who is still unidentified. His tweet which dates backs to 1st November 2016 reads:
"My girlfriend started her diet & is looking great. It's 40 days til my birthday. Committing 40 days/nights to my diet and fitness today."
Some unofficial sources, however, claim that he is running single and thus, we might have to wait for him to confirm this thing.
Wedding With Leigh, A Possibility?
That said, the Haves and the Have Nots star enjoys occasional company of a mystery woman named Leigh. The pair even vacationed together in Puerto Vallarta Mexico.
The world became first aware of his "girlfriend" after he had mentioned in his Instagram post whose caption read:
"Enjoying my time with Leigh in Peurto Vallarta, Mexico."
Interesting enough, Gavin opted to reveal the face of his alleged girlfriend, Leigh, when he posted the snap of the two enjoying the sun in - none other than - Puerto Vallarta, Mexico.

It turns out; Leigh is a busty blonde who he deems "lovely."
Is it too premature to assume that the pair might walk down the wedding aisle one day?
