Westlife star Mark Feehily has sensationally confessed he is gay. After keeping his sexuality secret from fans for six years, the pop heartthrob has admitted he has a boyfriend.Mark - who will break thousands of female fans' hearts with his revelation - is dating 21-year-old singer Kevin McDaid, who used to be in boyband V.He revealed: "I want people to know the truth about my sexuality. I am gay and I'm very proud of who I am."I'm not asking for sympathy, or to be a role model to anyone else. I simply felt it was the right time for me to let people know the truth."The 25-year-old star says he is very happy with Kevin, who he has been dating for several months.He told Britain's The Sun newspaper: "I've found someone who is a real companion. It does get lonely being on the road with the band sometimes and I'm very happy now I'm in a relationship with someone who makes me laugh."

Mark - who says his bandmates, Shane Filan, Nicky Byrne and Kian Egan, are all supportive of his decision to come out - is not the first pop idol to keep his sexuality secret from fans.

    we have not the right to judge a person who he/she is..i love westlife forever,,
    "no matter what they say, when it comes to love, nothing is impossible".. but then it is still wrong, it is his decision..
