He then dated Connie for 7 years before they got married in 1984. There was a rumor that Maury could have been Matthew’s blood father. The rumor mills had it that Maury had once donated sperms to a couple. The story then turned to be that Matthew could have been the result of that sperm donation. However, this was unconfirmed by Maury and so we treat as just rumors.

Is He Gay?

Matthew Povich is still a young man who hasn’t recorded any form of relationship with any woman. Isn’t it strange that if a man never engages in a relationship they are suspected to be gay? He has not come out publicly to say he is gay or anything to do with his sexual orientation. Lack of a woman in his life does not justify the gay claims either. So it remains that Matthew is straight.
