When Trystan Reese and his partner, Biff Chaplow, adopted Chaplow’s niece and nephew, they didn’t think it was that big of a deal. Somehow, though, their family still felt incomplete, and they found that they wanted a biological baby of their own. But while a man having a baby may sound impossible, perhaps all is not quite as it seems.
So how did this story begin? Well, it was love at first sight when Reese spotted Chaplow at an LGBT community event in 2010. Perhaps it was the way that his pink hair contrasted with his black bandana. Whatever it was, the feeling was mutual, and the new couple spent the next 12 months doing things like partying in Vegas, clubbing on weekends and hanging out at the beach.
However, their partying days came to an abrupt end when Chaplow received a troubling phone call one night. It was from a social worker, and she needed Chaplow to take his sister’s two kids into a safe home. Otherwise, they’d go into foster care when the weekend was up. Of course, Chaplow didn’t hesitate.
