Christmas came a day early for one of the brightest stars in television as Ryan Murphy, the creator of 'Glee,' 'American Horror Story,' and 'The New Normal,' became a father on Christmas Eve.
The son, Logan Phineas Miller Murphy, weighed 6.6 pounds and was 21 inches upon his 9:47 a.m. arrival. The creator and his husband, David Miller, announced the birth to their friends in an email sent later in the day with Logan pictured looking out from a Christmas stocking.
The two married in July in Provincetown, Mass.
While this is obviously fantastic news for the married couple, it is interesting to think how this will affect Murphy's programs. I do not think they will drastically be altered, but I do think the case could be made that Murphy uses his life experiences and interests in what he creates. He has become one of the most prolific new creators in television and it seems like he will be a force for years to come on the small screen. Would it be shocking to see him create a series based on becoming a father now? It almost seems like you could see Ryan and David in Bryan and David on 'The New Normal' - the happy gay couple that wants a baby.
Do you think this new addition to the family will change Murphy's work at all?
