About Two Gay Papas

Manuel and Bud are two proud papas who share their happy life in Spain raising their surrogate-born children—4-year-old Álvaro, and 2-year-old Carmen. They simply try to show that gay families are just as normal as any others, with 135K+ Facebook fans and 50K+ Instagram followers embracing their positive message. The family released an album of nursery rhymes with altered lyrics that make the songs more LGBTQ+ friendly, and the video of the dads singing “Five Little Monkeys” was a big hit on their Instagram. They took the kids all over in 2017, capturing smiles that were as big at World Pride Day in Madrid as they were at Walt Disney World. Every one of their joyful posts proves that #lovemakesafamily.
