BJ Barone and Frankie Nelson

Dads. Teachers. Authors. Bloggers.

From dancing in the clubs to now dancing in the living room with their son Milo, life has changed just a little for BJ and Frankie. BJ and his husband Frankie reside in Toronto and are raising their little “Bubbaloo” Milo, who was born via gestational surrogate.

BJ and Frankie's birth photo had gone viral which inspired them to write a children's book called Milo's Adventures and create their own website where you can read more of their blogs.

BJ and Frankie are both high school teachers in Toronto. They enjoy doing community theatre, travelling, spending time with family and friends, and now getting to experience life through their little ones eyes!
