Mrs Carter: Matt’s kids are creative when it comes to saying “I love you dad”
With Father’s Day quickly approaching, sons and daughters across the country are finding fun and creative ways to express their love and gratitude towards the men that helped shape us into the people we are today. No matter what age we are, we want our dads to know just how special they are to us.
“White Collar” star Matt Bomer and his partner, Slate PR co-founder Simon Halls couldn’t be more excited to spend Sunday kicking back with their three sons; Kit, 7 and twins Henry and Walker, 4. While speaking with Refinery 29, Bomer said that even though his sons are still a bit on the young side, they always find a way to do something really nice for them on Father’s Day. He said;
“The kids always do something really nice for us: a book of photos or a picture frame of them, which is great, but to me the most important thing is to spend time together: a BBQ out back, spending time in the pool. It’s awesome.”
It’s no surprise that Bomer’s children are a creative bunch as he revealed that he allows his boys to choose what clothing they want to wear each day and create styles that allows them to express themselves the way they want to. He said;
“You know, our oldest, I think he’s seen a lot of marketing material for White Collar, so he has this fascination with ties, and he has this old Thom Browne thing going on where we’ll say we’re going out for dinner and he’ll come down in a polo shirt, a tie, blue blazer, shorts, and black skinny loafers. We just embrace it and say you look fantastic. He’s seven. It’s incredible, if that’s what you wanna wear, do it.”
“I wanna let them cultivate their own sense of expression in the world, and style is a great way to do that.”
Encouraging children to be creative when they are young can only benefit them later on in life and letting them have their own sense of style at a young age allows them not only a chance to express who they are, but teaches them that it’s okay to do so. Fashion is one of the greatest outlets for people of all ages to have to really get creative while at the same time letting the world know who you are.
