Brian Dowling and Arthur Gourounlian became parents for the second time last week.

The couple welcomed baby Blu via surrogate.

Brian’s sister, Aoife, acted once again as their surrogate for baby number two.

Now her proud brother has paid tribute to her.

He shared two snaps of her in hospital with a caption that read: “One week ago today, this ROCKSTAR @effidy_dowling_ went into labour & changed our @gourounlian LIVES FOREVER again.

“A little sooner than we expected, but Blu was READY. For nine months, you protected our baby girl & kept her safe & happy until she was in our arms on June 23rd!!! In these situations, as I’ve said before, words never seem to be enough as they never really genuinely convey our thanks, our love and the amount of respect we have for you, Aoife; you are 1 in a million.

“You are an INCREDIBLE sister & the relationship you have with Blake is so UNIQUE & BEAUTIFUL; Blu will be BLESSED to have you in her life. In fact, we are all BLESSED TO HAVE YOU AOIFE DOWLING IN OUR LIVES.”

He concluded by joking: “Now like I said to you yesterday, let’s get you on Tinder.”

Arthur was quick to comment: “OUR HERO”.

Last week the couple announced the arrival of their second daughter with an Instagram post that read: “Please be upstanding for the arrival of our BEAUTIFUL DAUGHTER, Blu Amar Rose Dowling Gourounlian.

“Blu was delivered safely on Sunday, June 23rd, at 13:33h, weighing 6lb 2ozs. Myself & Papa @gourounlian are ABSOLUTELY BESOTTED & actually can’t believe we now have two little beauties to keep us on our toes.”

He went on to say: “@effidy_dowling_, you are a SUPERSTAR & we are, as always, FOREVER GRATEFUL. You stayed so calm, considering it wasn’t exactly the birth plan we had initially hoped for.

“Baby Blu was adamant to arrive on Sunday, the 23rd of June & nothing or no one was going to stop her. Big Sister Blake, you have been activated.”

How lovely!
