Alan Cumming - Alan Cumming Gives Up On Adoption Plans

Gay actor Alan Cumming has given up on plans to start a family because he lost the desire to have children as he grew older.

The Scottish star, who married his longterm partner Grant Shaffer in 2007, admits he previously looked into the possibility of adopting a child to fulfil his dream of becoming a father.

However, Cumming, 48, insists parenthood is now no longer part of his plans for the future.

He tells the London Evening Standard newspaper, "For a long time, I really wanted to have a child. I was obsessed with it. I wrote a novel that was basically about what you do with those feelings. I looked into it with a couple of people. Now, with Grant, I have a relationship that would be suitable to bring children into, but I don't want to. I think I should have the right to adopt through the state system, but I don't feel I need children to feel fulfilled with my life... I got older, I think, probably. And I got content. I think that's it."
