A gay, polyamorous California throuple made history in 2017 when they became the first family in the state to list three parents on a birth certificate.
Their reproductive journey and legal battle to become fathers to Piper, now 3, is detailed in “Three Dads and a Baby” (out March 9, Cleis Press), written by one of her dads, Dr. Ian Jenkins.
Jenkins and his partners, Jeremy Hodges and Dr. Alan Mayfield, don’t see their family — which now also includes their son, Parker, 1 — as unusual.
“The fact that Piper has three parents is just not a big deal. I have three parents myself — my mother, father and stepmother — and no one thinks anything of it,” Jenkins writes in the book. “Some people seem to think it’s about a ton of sex or something, or we’re unstable and must do crazy things. [But] it’s really remarkably ordinary and domestic in our house and definitely not ‘Tiger King,’” referring to Joe Exotic’s wild gay throuple featured in the buzzy Netflix docuseries.
Jenkins met Mayfield, a psychiatrist, while they were completing their medical residencies in Boston. The two were together for eight years when Hodges, who works at a zoo hospital, came into the picture.
Although their relationship with Hodges began as a friendship, things quickly turned romantic. After five years of throuple-dom, the trio started seriously discussing parenthood when friends offered to donate their leftover embryos to them.

Will be interesting when child support is discussed.
Poor child. At least it’s a girl.
One is a shrink.
“ The two were together for eight years when Hodges, who works at a zoo hospital, came into the picture.”
Did I get that right?
A noxious miasma of blindness and falsehood.
Until they have another freak doctor perform a adadicktome surgery.
Lies from the father of lies
The Lord rebuke him
But it will get worse I think
Too evil for words.
These insanely evil narratives have to be forced, otherwise even half-rational minds would never accept it.
Doesn’t everone have a few leftover embryos in their fridge?
There is really one one father. Check the DNA and find out that is so.
Or...ask the government who is writing off the little deductible.
Except the stepmother is not on the birth certificate.
Ric Grenell is in some Twitter feud with one of the conservative PAC leaders. I think her name is Lauren Witzke who ran for the Senate in DE. While I have no problems with gays in unelected, appointed positions (Grenell did a great job as Acting Intelligence chief), him running for President or even Governor would be a deal-breaker. I wouldn’t care if even Trump endorsed him.
