Brian said his sister has gone "above and beyond" for him and his husband Arthur.
He said she has stayed positive through all the mental and physical ups and downs.
"From ultrasounds and 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."
The 43-year-old said his sister is an inspiration for what she is doing.
"You are literally giving us the gift of life," he gushed.
Brian confirmed both his sister and baby are doing brilliantly.
"To you Aoife & our wonderful egg donor none of this would be possible without you both. From the bottom of our hearts thank you."
Brian and Arthur are set to welcome their first child together later this year.
