THESE GORGEOUS GAY DADS ARE THE FIRST BLACK LGBTI FAMILY TO FEATURE IN MAJOR FASHION CAMPAIGN

Gay-dads-Kordale-and-KalebKordale Lewis, Kaleb Anthony and their beautiful four children are the brand new faces of Acne Studios.

The Atlanta-based couple are the first black LGBTI family to represent a high fashion European clothing line. Their children are Desmiray, Maliyah, Kordale Junior and Kaleb Junior.

Founder of Acne Studios Jonny Johansson said: ‘[This campaign is] a way of highlighting that while every family is different, we all have the same love and want the best for our children.

‘There is no ‘normal’ family—all families are normal,’ he added.

In an interview with Acne Studios, the gorgeous gay dads say they have a healthy family-life balance.

Kaleb said: ‘We’ve been really blessed, man.

‘How we look at it is, from Sunday to Friday, we’re all about the kids—we do everything with the kids, have a movie night, play games, cook together.

‘A lot of people who know us really commend us for not having lost our sense of party and having a good time, while always putting our children first.

‘The kids are our number-one priority in all aspects of life,’ he added.

The couple met on Facebook after Kordale had his third child with his ex-girlfriend and then told her he was gay.

Kordale said: ‘I told her [I was gay] when she was pregnant with Kordale Junior, our third child.

‘She was like “You’re so gay!” She suspected it.

‘We broke up a couple months after she had my son. She entered into a new relationship, and I moved to Atlanta,’ he said.

‘Some kids have a mom and a dad, some kids have a dad and a dad’

The gay dads are huge on Instagram, after a viral post of the family doing their girls’ hair in the mirror.

Since then, they’re a force to be reckoned with. They starred in a Nikon campaign, where they shared their story and family life.

They told Huffington Post: ‘There will be those people who do not agree and will post negative comments or snarl their faces, but there are much more people who do agree and commend us as fathers and community activists.’

The pair said they have never experienced homophobia in Atlanta for being gay.

Kaleb joked: ‘There was a time when Kordale used to go pick up the kids more often than me, and then one day I turned up and another kid was like, “Hold on, I thought the other guy was your dad—you have two dads? That’s so cool!”‘

He continued: ‘Some kids have a mom and a dad, some kids have a dad and a dad. Some kids have a mom and a mom, and some kids just have a dad, and some just have a mom,’ he said.
