Personal Life

In 1997, Danny came out as gay after a “National Enquirer” reporter called and told him that they were “going to out him whether he cooperated or not.” Judith Light, who played the mother of Pintauro’s character on “Who’s the Boss?,” encouraged him to participate so he could control the conversation.

Danny became engaged to Wil Tabares in April 2013, and they married on April 3, 2014, in Dana Point, California. Pintauro told “US Weekly,” “I never thought I would ever get married. I knew I would never marry a woman, and never thought I’d see the day that same-sex marriage would be legal, so it’s definitely a life-long dream come true.” He added, “The beautiful reality is starting to set in. This is one small step for man, one giant step for equality.”

During a 2015 episode of “Oprah: Where Are They Now?,” Danny revealed that he was HIV positive and had contracted the virus in 2003. He also stated, “I was doing crystal meth, which completely ruins your immune system. I’d been doing it at that point very briefly, but it was three weeks or so, off and on. I had just come out of a two-year relationship, and I discovered in that relationship that there was more I wanted to explore sexually. Crystal meth takes away your inhibitions.”

Pintauro and Tabares moved from Las Vegas to Austin, Texas, in 2016, and Danny began working at Austin Pets Alive as a vet tech. The couple moved to California in 2022. When they lived in Las Vegas, Pintauro worked as a restaurant manager and as a sales representative for Tupperware.
