Adam Busby is the star of TLC's “OutDaughtered," a reality show following him and his wife's journey of raising the only all-girl squad of quintuplets in the U.S.
Busby recently made a stunning confession to loyal fans — he is suffering from postpartum depression.
During one of the most recent episodes, Busby revealed his struggle with being the sole breadwinner for his large family:
“I feel a lot of pressure being the only one providing for our family right now. All I think about all day long is seeing you, playing with the girls. I feel like I can't give enough time to either side and make everyone happy. In return, I feel like I'm not happy.”
He continued to be candid on his Twitter, hoping that his admission would be helpful for other fathers who suffer:
Less than a month after his confession, Busby is making headlines once more, but this time the reality star is under fire.
Fans of the show have taken to forum boards as of late to circulate rumors that the 35-year-old father of six is gay.
On the website “DC Urban Moms and Dads,” viewers of the show accused Busby of lying to audiences by masquerading as a straight man when he is, supposedly, gay.
One user wrote:
“I'm from the South, but I also think the dad is gay. That's not typical heterosexual Southern. That's gay.”
Another chimed in:
“I do think Adam seems gay. I can't pinpoint exactly what it is about him, but he just doesn't seem all that into her. He is great with the kids, so [he] probably always wanted to be a dad and got married very young so he could have that 'normal' life.”
Despite rumors, Busby seems to remain very much in love of his wife of 11 years, Danielle Busby.
He takes no time to praise his “hot mama” on Twitter, calling himself a “lucky guy” for having met her:
Still, the accusations kept coming, with another user writing, “The dad, Adam, is acting straight because he is gay!”
Some jumped to Busby's defense, adding “I don't think he is gay at all.”
Another user fought back at accusers, clarifying the difference between personality and sexuality, saying Busby “is effeminate or metrosexual, but not gay. There's a difference.”
But it seems like the entire Busby family is ignoring the rumors, instead turning to Twitter to share happy snaps of their larger-than-life family:
