by at . Comments

A few months after photos of Kordale and Kaleb helping their kids get ready in the morning went viral, another pair of gay dads are blowing up online.

BJ Barone and  Frankie Nelson recently became fathers to a son named Milo, welcoming the child into the world alongside his surrogate mother and Canadian photographer Lindsay Foster.

The latter posted the following photo on Facebook and wrote:

"I am VERY hopeful that these images can make you feel the deep LOVE and admiration that everyone felt for this surrogate mom and the baby’s new parents.

"These Daddies will most certainly be two amazing parents. I look at these pictures and I immediately tear up. captured the first time they held their newborn son."

Barone and Nelson took their shirts off because some experts believe skin-to-skin contact (aka “kangaroo cuddling” has a calming effect on newborns.

The couple then wrote themselves on Facebook:

"We are so lucky that we have a beautiful, healthy baby boy! All comments posted are respected, although we may not agree with the negative ones, the positive ones far outweigh the negative. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion.

"This is a moment of pure love and acceptance. Milo is surrounded by unconditional love and he will grow up knowing many different types of families and accept everyone (intolerant people included)."

They concluded their message by writing that love “has no colour nor gender nor sexual preference,” and is “unconditional."
