Fans are happy to learn that the Stranger Things star's family has his back.

Ever since coming out as gay, Stranger Things star Noah Schnapp has received a flood of support online. Now, fans are happy to learn that Schnapp's family also has his back.

The actor recently shared a heartwarming text from his grandfather, which Schnapp said he received after he came out in a TikTok video.

"Hey noah I became aware today of your public announcement that you are gay," Schnapp's grandfather wrote in the text, per Eonline. "I just want you to know that I love you the same and I'm happy for you to be open and to be yourself. Just be proud of who and what you are. Iris and I are supportive of your honestly and ability to express your true self! Love you to the moon and back."

Fans were glad to hear that the actor has a solid support system, with some even sharing their own experiences coming out to their grandparents and family members.

When Schnapp initially came out in January, he lip-synced to a viral sound with words displayed onscreen that read: "When I finally told my friends and family I was gay after being scared in the closet for 18 years and all they said was 'we know.'"


I guess I’m more similar to will than I thought

In the caption, Schnapp referenced his Stranger Things character, Will Byers — who Schnapp has confirmed is gay and has feelings for his best friend, Mike (Finn Wolfhard).

Schnapp wrote: "I guess I'm more like Will than I thought."
