The actor, who recently returned to screens as Marcus Dent and will reunite with former boyfriend Sean Tully (Antony Cotton) to raise the barman's son Dylan, told The Sun that the storyline has been applauded by many people.
As well as being part of a same-sex parenting couple in the show, in real life Condou is raising a daughter, Georgia Mae, with boyfriend Cameron Laux.
However, the actor revealed that he has faced criticism from some of his peers over his decision to raise a child with his partner.
"Almost everyone was fine with the idea of it apart from a couple of my gay friends. Someone asked me why I was trying to fit into a heterosexual stereotype," he explained.
"I thought I was doing the opposite, proving we can do it, too. It doesn't have to be them or us."
