The Arrow showrunner, who is dating soccer star Robbie Rogers, welcomed a son via surrogate on Thursday
Greg Berlanti, a writer, director and producer behind shows like Dawson’s Creek, Arrow and the upcoming Supergirl, can now add “father” to his long list of achievements!
Berlanti welcomed a son via surrogate on Thursday, and took to Instagram on Saturday to share the happy news.
“It is with much pride and love that I introduce to the world my son, Caleb Gene Berlanti. Born on February 18, 2016,” he captioned a photo collage of him and his boyfriend, soccer star Robbie Rogers, holding the newborn. “There is nothing I’ve wanted more, or waited for longer, than to be a father.”
He continued, “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,” Berlanti, 43, finished.
Rogers, 28, also shared the big news on his own Instagram account on Saturday, posting a black and white photo of a peacefully sleeping Caleb.
“Welcoming Caleb Gene Berlanti into this world with love and peace. 2/18/2016 the most handsome pure little guy I’ve set my eyes on,” he captioned the picture.
Berlanti and Rogers have been dating since 2013.
