One Pregnancy Makes Two Gay Dads

From the Huffington Post: "A gay couple have become the first recorded same-sex couple in South Africa to have children born of both parents' DNA by way of a surrogate mother.

Christo and Theo Menelaou reportedly fertilized a single egg each by way of their surrogate, resulting in the birth of triplets. The Menelaou's triplets also contain a set of identical twins.

'When you are gay, there is always the thought that it just may not be possible to be a parent no matter how much you would love to be,' Christo Menelaou told Sky News. 'It's very hard to be accepted for adoption and we were told we would always come after heterosexual couples.'

While each child born to the South African couple doesn't contain the DNA of both fathers, a new scientific proces called IVG (In Vitro Gametogenesis) could one day make it possible for same-sex couples to have babies who are biologically related to both partners. Congrats to this beautiful family!"
