Uncovering his identityIt was very hard for Scott not to be able to divulge himself while playing for professional soccer teams. He found it difficult to accept his true identity at first, but then Shaun T made him realize that being gay is amazing. He struggled in the past when he couldn’t find a reason to accept his being gay – even if the society accepts people like him – and being in a family without any other gay members. When Blokker took over Shaun’s personal blog, he was able to reveal his true self. Quoting from his blog: “It wasn’t until I met Shaun and his amazing self that I learned that being gay was amazing, because I was being ME…a genuine ME! There is such joy in not having to pretend to be something else!” At present, Scott is very active in social media, with many fans on Twitter and Instagram. Part of his social media life is that he likes photobombing. He also replies to his followers in Facebook as cheerfully as he can.

Scott Blokker: Marriage and children
Scott Blokker and Shaun T. are not just life partners, but business partners as well. It was when they announced their wedding that Scott opened-up about his being gay. This was the hardest thing for him to do, but he definitely became happier after it. Their wedding in New York had a 1930’s Chicago/Boardwalk Empire-esque theme that was entitled “Midnight Love”, hosted by the drag queen, Flava, at the Edison Ballroom, and included a team of dancers, romantic singers, an ethereal aerialist, and an amusing game show as part of the performance before the ceremony. They wanted to have a non- traditional wedding. Shaun confided that walking down the aisle escorted by his brother and mother and seeing Scott and his parents was the most emotional part of his life.
They are parents of twin boys who are now 10 months old, who they had through a surrogate. The couple welcomed Sander Vaughn and Silas Rhys on 17 November 2017, who actually arrived prematurely at 32 weeks gestation.
The couple shared in People magazine that they started their journey on starting a family shortly after getting married in 2012, but it was only on the 12th attempt that the surrogacy became successful. They referred to their surrogate as “our angel” who became pregnant on Shaun’s 39th birthday on May 2. They kept the news secret for 5 months.
In an interview with 24Life, Scott said that they would be just fine even when people said it’s going to be hard since they have twins, but after three months they realized that they needed help. He said that they didn’t anticipate how hard it was, and that they were running on two hours of sleep. Scott added that part of having children is having time for your partner as well through setting up date nights for soon–to-be fathers. He also said that spending time away from the children at times can help a couple have time for each other, and rejuvenate as well.
On fatherhood and fitness, Scott has always lived by the 85/15 rule: 85 percent healthy, 15 percent fun. He considers fitness as a way to make himself feel good, and for it to resonate to his kids for them to also feel good. Shaun T on the other hand has managed his time more through becoming more efficient in being fit, considering the time that they spend as fathers to the twins.
As of late 2018, Scott’s net worth has been estimated by authoritative sources at over $1 million, accumulated initially while playing in the NSL. This experience of his allowed him to travel to many countries, and led him to experience a lot about life.
