“It’s all getting real” Brian Dowling and husband Arthur step up their preparations for baby arrival

Brian Dowling and Arthur Gourounlian have baby preps well underway as they’re anticipating the arrival of their first child.

The couple announced the news earlier this month that they were expecting to become dads later this year. Brian’s sister Aoife is the couple’s surrogate and the pair are overjoyed to finally begin their family after much desire and anticipation.

Getting ready for the arrival, Brian and Arthur are sharing their preparations, which include the baby room, where the couple are clashing when it comes to decision making.

Sharing their dilemma on Instagram while the two were out shopping for wallpaper to put in the nursery, Arthur said:

“Mamma Mia, it’s all getting so real talking about the nursery. But it’s a battle between Brian and I because we both have a completely different style and views”

Chiming in Brian added:

“God help us both. Let the arguments with Arthur commence.”

Sharing that his sister Aoife was the couple’s surrogate, Brian shared that he can’t thank her enough for the gift she’s giving them.


“whether it is mentally or physically & you have stayed so POSITIVE & UPBEAT through it all. From Ultra Sounds & Ovulation tests to numerous conversations about your Cycle  to those 4 positive pregnancy tests we took where the 3 of us hugged & cried with happiness & excitement.”

“We have been through every step of this together reassuring each other along the way that everything will be fine once we stick together. Aoife you are an INSPIRATION to all of us. You are literally giving us THE GIFT OF LIFE.”
