Celebrity Gay Dads Welcome Twin Boys

U.K. celebrity Ian "H" Watkins, from '90s pop group Steps, is a dad! He and his partner, Craig Ryder, welcomed the arrival of twin boys born in the early hours of yesterday morning via a surrogate. Watkins took to social media to announce his sons' birth with a very special tweet sharing their news in the caption: "We are DADS! We are totally & utterly in Love!"

Ian and Craig have been together for around nine years and their first attempt to become fathers sadly ended when their surrogate miscarried in 2012.

Gays With Kids included Watkins and Ryder in our Famous Gay Dads and Their Kids post as the two dads originally announced their plans for fatherhood in the adorable video below:

Congratulations to Ian "H" and Craig!
