Award-winning director Ryan Murphy has penned a moving Instagram post, opening up about his personal life.

The brilliant screenwriter, director, and producer is best known for creating hit TV shows American Horror Story and Glee.

He also shares two sons, Ford (4) and Logan (5) with his husband David Miller. Tragically, Ryan revealed that his four-year-old son has been battling with cancer.

“I’d like you to meet Ford Theodore Miller Murphy. Today is a big day in his and our family’s lives,” he said.

“Two years ago, this sweet little innocent boy with a deep belly laugh and an obsession with Monster Trucks was diagnosed with neuroblastoma…an often fatal pediatric cancer.

“Ford’s cancer — an abdominal tumor the size of a tennis ball — was found during a normal check up by his brilliant pediatrician Dr. Lauren Crosby. From there, Ford has undergone a huge surgery and several difficult procedures.”

Ryan praised his partner for remaining a symbol of strength for him and their son, reassuring and supporting the family each step of the way.

“My better half, David Miller, was a rock through this — strong and patient and loving (I was always a trembling wreck).

“Ford was strong as well, and today he is thriving. He just celebrated his fourth birthday, a milestone we are all so thrilled about. Ford is doing so well because of Children’s Hospital Los Angeles.”

The father went on to announce that they are donating a wing in tribute to their son as well as donating $10 million dollars for families who cannot afford health care.

They want “other children [to] experience the love and care of this exceptional facility.”

“We are so honored and lucky to contribute, and encourage everybody who can to do the same. We love you, Ford”.

Both Ryan and David are overjoyed that their son is able to celebrate this birthday milestone and continue to cherish each and every moment they get with young Ford.

Hopefully, the money they donate can help families going through a similar experience and have the potential to save another child’s life.

The terrifyingly genius American Horror Story: Apocalypse will be hitting our screens next month. 

And show-runner Ryan Murphy let fans have a peek at what's to come – including that of a certain music legend.

Fleetwood Mac's Stevie Nicks will take centre stage in the newest season alongside the gang from S3's Coven –Sarah Paulson, Lily Rabe, Emma Roberts, Frances Conroy, Gabourney Sidibee and Taissa Farmiga.  

Ryan captioned the image, ''what a thrilling night with the legend Stevie Nicks on the set of AHS.''

The eighth season will combine storylines of season one (American Horror Story: Murder House) and season 3, as well as having a few more recurring faces thrown into the mix. 

Among these will be Kathy Bates, Jessica Lange, Evan Peters, Cheyenne Jackson and Billie Lourd.

The promo for AHS: Apocalypse has been building up slowly, with cast members including Evan Peters teasing plot points.

We just can't believe that Queen Stevie will be part of the craziness.

We literally are LIVING for it – we know by now that AHS doesn't pull any punches so we're fully prepared for an insane season.

American Horror Story: Apocalypse premieres on FX on September 12th.

Ryan Murphy is reportedly in the process of developing a television series about the #MeToo movement. 

According to the New Yorker, the series will be called Consent and will follow a format similar to that of Black Mirror, whereby each episode would tell a different story with new characters. 

The #MeToo movement was created in response to a string of high profile sexual abuse allegations, as way of encouraging people to open the conversation and provide support for victims who have suffered in silence for too long. 

It's been reported that the anthology will feature episodes on disgraced Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein and actor Kevin Spacey's sexual misconduct allegations.

Another episode is set to detail an ambiguous "he-said-she-said" scenario. 

The project has not been backed by FX or Netflix as of yet, though this is probably due to the fact that Murphy just left FX and his Netflix deal doesn’t officially begin until July. 

Either way, we hope to see Consent on our screen in the near future.

American Horror Story has touched on many themes and time periods over its seven seasons.

From a 1960's mental institution to a retro hotel in downtown Los Angeles, each self-contained miniseries tells a tale of unusual happenings, some of which have been inspired by true events.

However, it looks like the hit show is set for an entirely new direction, with creator Ryan Murphy revealing that the new season will be set in a science-fiction style future.

According to Entertainment Weekly, the executive producer revealed the news during the Television Critics Association's press tour in Pasadena last Friday.

Without giving too much away, Ryan explained: “All I’ll say about it is I want to go to the future—still topical, but the future, which I’ve never done.”

He continued to say how the idea was met with huge excitement from FX bosses, adding how he thinks fans are really going to enjoy the new theme.

“I pitched it to [FX chief] John Landgraf today right after his TCA panel, and he loved it, but he’s asked me not to say what it is,” Ryan said.

“I told him and he fell out of his chair with joy. I think people will like it, it’s different from what we’ve done before, but I always try and do the opposite of what I’ve done on that show.”

Though no date has yet been set, American Horror Story season 8 will likely go to air this coming September, with Sarah Paulson confirmed to return for a new leading role.
