As the kids were little while Adian and his wife called it quits, the actor addressed his concern regarding how his decision could impact their kids.

Talking to Independent on this matter, he commented that the difficult part of his separation from his wife was to make sure it worked out in the best possible way with their kids.

But, almost a decade after his divorce, love embraced Aidan again when he met his now-girlfriend Camille O'Sullivan in 2014.

Talking about his relationship with Camille, an actress, and musician, Aidan said that his partner has been his inspiration and described her as 'great fun.'

Madly in love, the actor could not stop gushing about his girlfriend and continued as 'it was like finding someone who was like me but not totally like me.'

Well, Aidan's beau is no less in praising her partner and as per her she never thought she would meet someone like him.

Like Aidan, Camille also separated from her previous partner with whom she shares a daughter.

As the new couple is both riding the tide of parenthood, their kids are their foremost priority, which is why they have not considered remarrying yet, said Aidan.

The pair have been together for almost seven years now, and they have no plan to get married. Nonetheless, both are content with their relationship and do not feel the need to tie the knot.

Aidan is finding himself lucky in love with his new partner, but in the past, the rumors of him being gay caught attention when he appeared in the drama series Queer as Folk.

Debunking Aidan's Gay Rumors

The speculation of his sexuality as gay came after Aiden's surreal portrayal in the British TV series Queer as Folk.

The series released in 1999 is considered the epitome of bringing gay life into mainstream television.

In the series where he portrayed the eccentric lead role as Stuart, the actor shared some intimate scenes with his co-actor on-screen, which might have stirred the speculation regarding his sexuality.

But, as he never confirmed the speculation, his extravagantly successful career gradually overshadowed the trivial rumor about his gender. However, it's clear enough that Aidan is a straight man and is relishing his life with his partner Camille.
