T.R. Knight is blaming his hectic schedule as the reason for his split with his boyfriend of almost two years, Mark Cornelsen.
“It just came to a natural end, no hard feelings,” explains a close friend of the former Grey’s Anatomy star, whose focus has been on his role in the musical Parade at the Mark Taper Forum in LA.
“They still care about each other very much.”
And though T.R., 36, asked his ex, who is 16 years younger, to move out of the apartment they shared, he said it doesn’t mean he has given up hope for a family someday.
“I want a baby,” he told Ellen DeGeneres around the time of his breakup. His wish to adopt a child is genuine. “When the time is right, it will happen,” says the pal, adding that for right now, “his focus is on the show.”

“I want a baby,” the former Grey’s Anatomy star reveals on Tuesday’s Ellen DeGeneres Show.
He goes on, “I don’t know if it’s going to end up working out, but that would be something I would like.”
The actor, 36 — who is currently starring in musical Parade at the Mark Taper Forum in L.A. — has said his former costar Katherine Heigl is inspiring him to have kids.
After she and husband Josh Kelley adopted Naleigh from Korea, Knight said, “I’ve wanted [kids] for a while, so it reinforces it.
“She’s such a beautiful baby,” he went on. “I’m so happy for her and Josh.”
T.R. Knight made his way to pal Katherine Heigl’s home in Los Angeles, California on September 12, 2009. Radar reports that 10-month old Naleigh is safe and sound at home with her new mom and dad. T.R. is a good friend of Heigl’s from the show he just left “Grey’s Anatomy” and might just get the honor of being godfather to Naleigh. Her cast members have been showing up to the home for the past couple of days but she has not left the home in a while, which makes one believe the little one has arrived for sure.
