Magic Johnson's son Earvin Johnson III is gay. He made that very clear this week by walking hand-in-hand with his boyfriend in Los Angeles while a TMZ reporter asked him questions about the Dodgers and Lakers. And, shortly after the interview went down, TMZ got a hold of Magic to ask him about his son.

"Cookie and I love EJ and support him in every way," Magic told TMZ. "We're very proud of him."

Very nice. Even though it's a little bit crazy that Magic's response to his son being gay is still considered "news" in 2013, his response to TMZ's questions about his son was perfect.
