Welcome to the Family

Meredith Baxter, probably best known for playing ex-hippie mother-of-four on Family Ties, came out today. She made the announcement this morning on Today, telling Matt Lauer "I am a lesbian and it was a later-in-life recognition."

Good for her! I am truly pleased she's found herself and is happy.

Both Baxter's former on-screen family and her real family have known about her sexuality, though she was initially nervous about telling her five children.

"I said, I think I'm gay, and my oldest boy said, I knew," Baxter laughed. "The support from my family and anyone close to me has been so immediate and unqualified. I’ve really been blessed."
Awesome. Totally awesome.
