Fashion stylist, journalist, and producer Joe Zee and husband Rob Younkers have just shared a piece of good news- The couple is expecting a baby girl via surrogate!
The to be father Zee took to Instagram on Tuesday to write, “SO in just under 4 weeks, our little family is going to grow by ONE. We are so excited and feel so blessed to welcome our baby girl during this exciting though uncertain time.”
While adding their dilemma to share the announcement amid the coronavirus pandemic, the post continued, “This has been a 2.5 year journey for my husband and I, with its share of ups and downs, as we pursued every possible route to starting a family. And as those who have gone through it, gay, straight, young, old, starting a family today can be filled with many challenges. For us, we are excited that our journey will culminate later this month with a bundle of joy.”
Thanking their surrogate, who is in Minnesota, they gushed about parenthood, “No one is ever completely ready to be parents and if parenting is jumping constant hurdles (many of which we have already lived through), then having a baby just as this country will be peaking with Covid-19 and traveling back with her, is literally kicking it off with an Ironman Triathlon."
Joe Zee then concluded the post with a heartfelt message, “We know that she will read this one day and know that this is what made her the strong woman that she will become. There are no accidents. Her coming into this world at this time - wherever we may be as a country - will be nothing short of magic.”
