Brian Dowling and Arthur Gourounlian have shared plenty of their surrogacy journey with fans through their social media. But could a new documentary about their experience be on the way?
Brian opened up about the possibility, revealing they had been approached about a show and are open to the idea.
Telling the Irish Mirror; “We are in talks about potentially doing something, yes. It’s more local in Ireland. Obviously with the option to sell to whoever wants it and to the UK or wherever.”
The couple revealed that Brian’s sister Aoife was carrying their child last month, and Brian believes their unique situation is worth documenting.
“I just think that because our situation is quite unique and the fact that it is Arthur and I and my sister, we have talked about that.”
But with Aoife being due later this year, they’ll have to make arrangements soon. As the Big Brother winner shared; “Obviously, there is a time issue on that, but we’ll be making a decision on that really soon.”
The pair announced they were expecting their first child back in May.
Sharing the news on Instagram, Brian shared a video montage of their journey to parenthood so far along with an emotional caption:
“It COMPLETELY FILLS OUR HEARTS @gourounlian to be able to reveal we are PREGNANT & due to our BEAUTIFUL bundle of joy later this year”
Continuing on, Brain said: “We actually never thought this day would be a reality for us. We fully realize & understand how lucky & blessed we are for this to be happening”
“For a lot of us out there & especially people from our community we have to fight harder & push harder for what others consider to be something that can be achieved easily”
