Love Life and Family: Is David Muir Gay?
David is a very private person when it comes to his personal life. He is unmarried, and most probably, he is happily single and lives in New York. The famous journalist is rarely seen with his female friends in public. So, all of that had led to many fans asking questions about his sexuality. Back in 2014, a rumor about Muir being gay started making rounds. There were rumors of David Muir dating his colleague at ABC- Gio Benitez. Gio is an openly gay journalist. There were rumors that the two of them were dating, and this went on for months. All this started after the two of them apparently went to a gay bar and took a photo.
However, it looks like this rumor is just a rumor. Benitez is happily married to another TV host named Tommy DiDario. DiDario and Gio got engaged in 2015, and then they tied the knot in 2016. Until now, David has not disclosed any information on whether he is involved with someone or not. But what we know is that all those gay rumors were fake since there is clearly no evidence to support the claim.
