Star would have baby for Barrowman

Actor John Barrowman claims one of his Desperate Housewives co-stars offered to have a baby for him

Gay actor John Barrowman claims one of his Desperate Housewives co-stars offered to make his dream come true - by having a baby for him.

The Torchwood star, who joined the cast in Wisteria Lane, revealed that Drea de Matteo said she would help him have his longed-for child.

Barrowman told the new edition of Heat magazine they had become close on set after he was cast as Patrick Logan, the evil ex-boyfriend of de Matteo's character, Angie Bolen.

"Drea said we're like brother and sister, separated at birth and that she'd have my kids," he said.

"She's got this amazing New Jersey drawl 'I usually don't like actors, but I like you. You want a kid? Come to me, I'll have a baby for ya'. Brilliant."

Barrowman, who begins a new series of his Tonight's The Night series on BBC1 on Saturday, has spoken of his desire to be a father since tying the knot in a civil partnership with his long-term partner, architect Scott Gill.

In a recent interview, he said: "I think I would be a good dad. Scott and I have an incredible amount to offer a child."
