Eli and Ido have been together for 12 years and married for eight. Both dads are from Israel and met in their home country on Israel's version of OKCupid or Match.com. Eli and Ido's relationship blossomed quickly, and the two moved in with one another just six months into the relationship. They were married in Tel Aviv in 2007, right before moving to the States, then officially again in Canada in 2009 because the Tel Aviv wedding was more of a celebration, and once more in NYC in 2011. They have two gorgeous daughters born via surrogacy: Their oldest daughter, Milo, was born in 2010, and their youngest, Demi, was born in 2013. Both Eli and Ido always wanted to be dads and to raise a family together. Demi and Milo call both their dads "Abba" (Hebrew for Dad) or "Dad". Follow this NYC family on a day in the Big Apple.
