Same-Sex Couple Welcomes Triplets with DNA from Both Dads

October 3, 2016

(CBS News) – At 35 weeks, their children arrived. As it turns out, embryos with DNA from both dads, respectively, were implanted and thrived. So, the twins have Justin’s DNA. Their son has Adam’s. It is believed they are the first gay couple in the world with this surrogacy outcome. “They’re genetically half-siblings. They’re going to look alike. I think it will be good for them,” Justin says.
