The veteran TV and film actress revealed she was in a long-term relationship with her female best friend in a New York Times editorial in December 2013. In the essay, titled "Coming Out as a Modern Family," Bello opened up about sharing the news with her 12-year-old son Jackson from a previous relationship, as well as her parents. Despite her "deeper" love with a woman named Clare, Bello said she still doesn't identify as gay or bisexual. "I would like to consider myself a 'whatever,' as Jackson said," she wrote. "Whomever I love, however I love them, whether they sleep in my bed or not, or whether I do homework with them or share a child with them, 'love is love.' And I love our modern family. Maybe, in the end, a modern family is just a more honest family."
