Hill Harper Reveals Decision To Adopt On GMA

Hill Harper is known for being an actor, author and philanthropist, but now he’s also known for being a dad.

On Good Morning America, Harper revealed that he adopted a son in December of 2015, and that he’s a single father. Back in the summer of 2015, Harper says he had a friend who called him up for an intervention about having children.

“My very dear friend, she called me during the summer of 2015 and said, ‘I’m going to do an intervention,'”said Harper. “I always thought I was going to get married. I was going to have my own kids. And I was going to adopt. I talked about adopting. I talked about how I wanted to be this dad, and [my friend] said, ‘You’re going to be a great dad, but I think you’re waiting to long.'”

Harper calls his son Pierce the biggest blessing of his life. Watch his exclusive on GMA below:
