Congratulations to Neil and David. They must be so excited!

Kid 1: “Hey, Dad, where is Mom?”
Dad 1: “Dad 1 & 2 don’t like girls, honey.”
Kid 2: “But, I’m a girl!”
Dad 2: “Yes, you are. Hey, Dad 1, help me out here.”

poor babies

why would they do that? I mean how is that normal to have two daddys? The kid is gonna be bullied in school, make fun of, this is not normal I don’t know how the society can accept that,. Seriously I don’t care if you givme thumbs down for this but would you want to have two daddys? what happen to the normal family household?

i hope they will have an aunty/ female figure somewhere in the picture. i believe in gays having kids but the same way single parents aren’t encouraged to adopt alone, there should be a positive presence of the opposite sex.

Love the name Gideon ever since seeing the old movie “Seven Brides for Seven Brothers. Russ Tamblyn (Amber Tamblyn’s father) played Gideon.

So who is the biological father, Neil or David?

Congrats to them! I’m sure that they will make great parents!

did u know that dad already is a father?

He has also twins with his former partner, a producer. just forgot his name..

öhm…david not dad;)

I was brought up in a family of men.
My mother died before I was born, I was raised by my dad and four older brothers, I know it’s not classed as the same as this l0l, but my dad made sure I had a lot of interaction with my aunts and female cousins. I am sure the twins will have female figures in their lives.
And know how babies are made! >:D
As long as you have loving parents, who cares?

I meant *after* I was born, not before! duh :P


I’d venture to guess they specified surrogate versus adoption, not surrogate versus seahorse syndrome.

i dont think its a good idea that gay people should have kids!!!!! poor poor children i feel sorry for the twins… its not natural

@mjnhbcfzujkm: Neither is using the internet. Or wearing clothes. Or going tanning. Or taking medican. Or much of anything else that we do these days. If anything, feeling a deep love for another person is much more natural than any of these things. Additionally, why is a man raising a baby with another man any worse than a man raising a baby alone (say, if the mother dies, or was abusive). If nothing else, isn’t having an extra set of hands to love and care for a child better? These little ones have a home with a set of loving parents, which is more than a lot of kids can say.

That poor little girl, growing up with two DADS! Something is very wrong with this whole thing :(
