Say what you will about Instagram, whether you think it’s destroyed the art of photography or saved it, when it brings us glimpses at moments like this, it’s wonderful.
Writer Greg Berlanti announced the birth of his son, Caleb Gene, over the weekend via Instagram. In the post, Berlanti said that “there is nothing I’ve wanted more, or waited for longer, than to be a father.” Berlanti goes on to thank his family, surrogate, and boyfriend, soccer player Robbie Rogers. Rogers also posted a picture of the baby on his Instagram account, and Berlanti teased a picture of his then-unborn son’s crib a week before the delivery.
Congratulations to Greg, his son, and Robbie. Wishing them all the best.
It is with much pride and love that I introduce to the world my son, Caleb Gene Berlanti. Born February 18, 2016. There is nothing I've wanted more, or waited for longer, than to be a father. Achieving this dream would not have been possible without the love and support of my wonderful family and surrogate, incredible boyfriend, amazing friends and co-workers that encouraged me and helped me on this remarkable journey. Check back in approximately 25-30 years for the tell-all about how I screwed it all up, until then apologies for the over posting of baby photos. My heart is full forever.
