Harbaugh said,  

I just blurred out- and told him for the first time verbatim- 'Dad, I'm gay. DO you know that?' And because of that, this is why X, Y, Z. I'm scared because of this, that and the other.

He added, He (father) has supported me in everything I've done. I know he's supportive of me and I feel lucky in that regard, that my entire family is supportive of me.


So, there's this girl ...
