“Hours were spent with them in the hospital room while the surrogate mom was labouring and I got to know them quite well. They are two compassionate people who felt all the emotions that every new parent feels.

They asked all appropriate questions of the birthing mom and the midwife and educated themselves as best as they could for their son’s arrival. I am so proud of these two dads.”

Unfortunately, the pictures on Facebook drew some negative comments. In a statement, BJ and Nelson said: “All comments are respected, although we may not agree with the negative ones, the positive ones far outweigh the negative.

“Everyone is entitled to the their own opinion. This is a moment of pure love and acceptance. Milo is surrounded by unconditional love and he will grow up knowing so many different types of families and accept everyone, (intolerant people included).”
