Gay Penguin ‘Power Couple’ Trying for Their Second Child

Gay Penguin ‘Power Couple’ Trying for Their Second Child

Just like power gays to show off that their nest is big enough for another kid.

Power gays love showing off their wealth by adopting as many children as possible, and apparently the same is true for power gays of all species. A queer penguin couple at the SEA LIFE Sydney Aquarium are coming in hot this breeding season, hoping to foster another egg.

Sphen and Magic became parents to little Sphengic last October after the aquarium gave them an egg to foster. Now that their little bundle of joy is a year old, the pair want to add to the family. 10daily reports that with breeding season upon us, the aquarium have given the couple another egg to foster after seeing their nest.

"They have the neatest and largest nest in the colony and when we noticed that another couple were struggling to incubate two eggs at the same time, we made the decision to foster the second egg to the power couple of the colony," said penguin supervisor Tish Hannan.

Hannan gushed that the couple's first child, Sphengic, "had an excellent start to life under their care and while she's still a bundle of energy and very loud, she's matured nicely but still quite unsure as to what all the adults are doing this breeding season." Probably too busy with Snapchat to notice. Kids!

The egg given to Sphen and Magic hasn't been confirmed as fertile, so it's unclear whether Sphengic has a sibling on the way. But this modern family of gentoo penguins will hopefully be luckier than Skipper and Ping, a gay penguin couple at the Berlin Zoo who failed to hatch their egg in September.

At least they've already got outfits for the baby shower -- assuming it's black tie.
