Sex and the City actor, Actor Willie Garson who died on Tuesday at the age of 57, sometime last year, in an interview spoke fondly about his “special” son, Nathan, whom he adopted in 2009.

“He’s an adult and soon to be taking care of me which is really why I got him to be honest,” Garson said at the time. “He’s lovely and a really special guy. He’s wonderful and he’s in college in Ohio.”

Willie said then that he wanted a child of his own even while being a single parent. He later went on to adopt a child.

“I had a long relationship off and on for like 20 years, and she never wanted to have a child, which is fine,” he said. “And it was like my mid-life crisis. Like, I really wanted a child more than anything else. And I got one and we’re partners, my kid and I.” he once said.

Nathan 20, on the father’s demise wrote a tribute to him saying: “I love you so much papa. Rest In Peace and I’m so glad you got to share all your adventures with me and were able to accomplish so much. I’m so proud of you. I will always love you, but I think it’s time for you to go on an adventure of your own.

“You’ll always be with me. Love you more than you will ever know and I’m glad you can be at peace now. You always were the toughest and funniest and smartest person I’ve known. I’m glad you shared you’re [sic] love with me. I’ll never forget it or lose it.”

Before his demise, it was learnt that Garson returned to NYC to reprise his role of Stanford Blatch in “And Just Like That…”, the upcoming “SATC” revival
