"Hugh and Kurt have been seeing each other for a few weeks now and he [Hugh] recently introduced him to his family," they told Daily Mail Australia.

Hugh opened up about his sexuality in October last year after keeping his personal life very private for many years.

In an essay for Stellar Magazine, Hugh shared how he has previously had relationships with both men and women in the past and didn't like to be labeled.

The star said he was encouraged to keep his sexuality private as if he “was anything but straight” he’d never get work.

However, during the coronavirus lockdown, he had time to reflect and said he wanted to ‘stick up for people who don’t pick a label’ with the actor hoping to help people who are still figuring themselves out by sharing his story.

Hugh said when he first found fame as Ben Rafter on the TV show Packed To The Rafters, he was in a relationship with a man, after previously being in love with both women and men in former relationships.

He was 22-years-old and after being told in the past that his sexuality could affect his chances at getting roles, he decided to keep his personal life private.

Since then, he has ‘protested with silence’ for the LGBTQIA+ community, but now he’s speaking out as he feels a “responsibility to others who may come after me”.

A friend has previously been forced to deny Hugh was dating close friend Delta Goodrem.

“It is pretty ridiculous... There is nothing romantic between them. They are purely friends,” they told The Daily Telegraph.

Hugh's relationship with Rebel Wilson also came under scrutiny last year as the pair were seen hanging out often.
