6) Uhhmmm, ladies AND men, Mr DiMarco identifies as "fluid".

In a Q&A session with over Twitter, when asked if he is into boys or girls. He simply answered with one short word "fluid" and included a link to an Everyday Feminism article defining the term. "These people are either always attracted to more than one gender or feel that their attraction may shift depending on factors like time, intimacy with certain partners, changes in hormone levels, and so forth," the author wrote.

7) He has a fraternal twin who has red hair.

There will always be two wishes. Exactly 20 years ago we celebrated our 3rd. You do the math. And... Yes we are TWINS.
