Big Brother star Brian Dowling has become a father to a daughter with his husband Arthur
The reality television personality and Arthur Gourounlian welcomed daughter Blake Maria Rose after his sister, Aoife, agreed to help them by being their surrogate.
The couple, who wed in 2015, gushed that they were ‘totally in love’ with their ‘new princess’.
They first announced they were expecting with a sweet post thanking Aoife for being their surrogate in May 2022.
He told his 210,000 Instagram followers: “Please be upstanding for the arrival of our beautiful daughter Blake Maria Rose Dowling Gourounlian. Yes, people, another BDG. Blake was delivered safely on Thursday, September 1st at 14:52 pm weighing 7lb 4ozs.
“We @gourounlian are absolutely totally in love with her and can’t believe she’s here and is ours.
“None of this would have been possible without our donor, a woman we have never met or even seen a picture of but has given us the gift of life.
“Now, where do we even start with you @effidy_dowling_ you are a saint to us and we will forever be grateful to you for the rest of our lives. Baby Blake can’t wait for her Aunty Aoife to spoil her.”
The couple has long been open about their dream of becoming parents and recently criticised Ireland’s surrogacy laws, describing them as ‘absolutely ridiculous’.
