Duncan began dating Claire Grainger in 2004 and became the father of her daughter Tianie Finn, in 2005. Duncan could've made his ex-girlfriend his wife, but his sexual preference insecurities didn't let him and soon after they broke up. He had a lot of Catholic guilt and thought, "God would punish him because he was gay." But soon he realized that he couldn't deny his own nature and accepted himself as gay. That was when Duncan began to see his first friend, whose identity has not yet been revealed. Although Duncan had already accepted himself, he was still uncertain about opening up to the world, so people linked him to Geri Halliwell when he dated his boyfriend.
The fact that he was now surrounded by rumors about Geri Halliwell's affair was a perfect cover to cover up his sexuality. But he soon broke his heart when his boyfriend split with him because his partner didn't like Duncan being a closet bisexual. And it was finally in 2009 that Duncan was unable to hide the truth and came out to the world as a bisexual. The revelation might also have been a shock to his ex-friend, but they remain on good terms. Now that Duncan identifies himself openly as gay, he doesn't hesitate to be gay and to have a daughter. And while Duncan thinks that many gay people would be deprived of sleeping with a woman, he still finds women attractive and comfortable to be with a guy.
