2 Dads and a Little Lady - Mark Davidson, The Real Dads of Ireland

What does a family look like? 

We think it looks like love. 

And this Father’s Day, everymum has a very special episode which celebrates 2 dads loving their little lady. 

Mark Davidson, one half of the real dads of ireland instagram account and co-founder of kidandco.ie joins Sinead to talk about surrogacy, same sex parenting, raising a girl to see an equal world and the legal challenges parents through international surrogacy fight in Ireland to be recognised as legal parents. 

We talk about the moment Izzy was born, about how their relationship was stretched and strengthened, about unsolicited advice and how dads can receive more help from friendly strangers. 

This episode claps loudly for the amazing dads who are changing and challenging the old norm - the dads who love deeply, who share the work and who want to create a better more equal society for their children.

A celebration of same sex parenting and of fatherhood. 

Happy Father’s Day and thank you for all that you do.
