Raven Symone, the former child actress who rose to fame on “The Cosby Show”, tweeted over the weekend her support for gay marriage and said how happy she is to know that when she’s ready to settle down with someone, marriage won’t be an issue for her.

The Disney Channel star took to Twitter in her excitement over gay marriage laws changing around the country, and when the social media site blew up in response, she released a statement.

“I am very happy that gay marriage is opening up around the country and is being accepted,” the statement said. “I was excited to hear today that more states legalized gay marriage. I, however am not currently getting married, but it is great to know I can now, should I wish to.”

Though several people were already under the impression that Symone was gay, the news came as a shock to many, who took to the social media site to talk about it.
