Over 270,000 people have seen a young gay dad's coming out story on YouTube, and now his wife and children have appeared in a video with him, showing how their lives have moved on.  25-year-old Ben Hobson told his tale on camera a few months ago, with the South Dakota dad describing it as a "crazy, messed up, loving, hurtful, redemptive, free story."Shortly after his mother died, Ben married Keeley and they had two children. He says his should've been a "perfect family," but he knew something was wrong.He developed a drinking problem "because it numbed my feelings," and he tearfully describes realising later "those feelings were GAY feelings."He tells his story below.

The video's been getting a lot of attention in recent days, prompting Ben to do a follow-up, letting us know how they've been getting along, and introducing us to his wife Keeley."We're still feeling a lot of emotions right now," realises Ben. "There's a lot of emotion and love still there."
