Stephen Fry is leaning on his loved ones, specifically his husband, in the wake of his prostate cancer diagnosis.
The British entertainer shared the frightening news on his website on Friday, revealing that he’d undergone surgery to have his prostate removed in January and was in the recovery process. Fry, 60, said his husband, Elliot Spencer, 27, has been a great support during this difficult time, adding that the process has been ‘undignified and unfortunate’.
Fry and Spencer, who married in 2015 amid much buzz, have kept a low profile throughout their relationship. Their courtship, which is believed to have lasted about a year before they decided to wed, drew a lot of attention due to the nearly three-decade age gap between them. They proceeded anyway and have been quietly enjoying married life ever since.
