Michelle McClain posted a letter of encouragement, love and a piece of advice to her son Zach Gibson after he revealed on Facebook he was gay.
"I was surprised by your Facebook post where you came out. I want you to know that I love you unconditionally,” McClain wrote in her letter to Gibson. In true motherly style, she ended her loving note with a simple piece of advice: “The only thing that concerns me is the empty soda cups and tea bottles in your room. Throw them away before ants come inside. I love you always, Mom"
Gibson told Showbiz Tonight’s A.J. Hammer he wasn’t surprised by his mom’s reaction, saying, “It’s typical of my mom to say what she said.” Gibson added, “I’m surprised by how viral it went.”
So how did the letter end up going viral? Watch the full interview with Gibson and his mother on Showbiz Tonight at 11 p.m. ET/PT on HLN.
