Family is the greatest bond and one sister has helped her brother become a father, for the second time.
You may remember Clinton and Rhiannon Stevens, brother and sister. Rhiannon offered to carry Clinton’s child as his surrogate after he came out as gay 14 years ago, and she definitely did just that. In 2012, Clinton married his husband Callum, and Rhiannon kept her promise and carried their daughter.
Zara was born in 2014 and Clinton and Callum were fantastic dads.
And just three weeks ago, Rhiannon gave birth to Clinton and Callum’s second daughter, Aiden.
Rhiannon said: “I’ve always said that when the time came, I’d help Clinton to have a child.”
“It felt like the most natural thing in the world to offer to be his and Callum’s surrogate. I’ve never been concerned about having any difficulty handing the baby over to them at the end of the process.”
She added, “After Zara was born, it only took me three months to offer to go again. Clinton and Callum are absolutely wonderful with kids and helping them to become parents was a dream come true for me. I’d do it again in a heartbeat.”
And she did.
“It was a really easy decision for me,” Rhiannon said, “My three kids were completely fine with the fact that their mummy had grown a baby for their uncle and I loved seeing Clinton and Callum so happy.”
Clinton and Callum are over the moon with the gift that Rhinanon has given them. Clinton said, “The fact my sister helped us to become parents twice is such a testament to the woman she is.”
“Becoming dads for the second time is a gift we can never repay and we’re looking forward to explaining to Zara and Aiden exactly how they came into the world when they’re old enough.”
