“Our baby girl has said her first word”

Brian Dowling and Arthur Gourounlian’s baby girl Blake has marked a major milestone. The dads revealed Blake said her first word and it was extra special.

Their baby girl’s first word was ‘daddy’.

Arthur and Brian posted an adorable video of the moment Blake said her first word. They shared, “And Just Like That, our baby girl has said her FIRST WORD.”

“And YES, IT WAS DADDY. You can clearly hear daddy, right? Sorry, Papa, maybe that will be next,” Brian quipped.

The pair’s followers couldn’t get enough of the sweet video.

“She’s the sweetest cutest little girl & yes we all heard her say Daddy … Papa will be next,” one said.

“So beautiful! It will be interesting to see what little accent she will have,” another added.

“Without a doubt this will be one absolute chatterbox, you guys are the best,” another shared.

“She is such a beautiful baby and always smiling. I have to show my Mum every time you have her on,” one wrote.

Brian and Arthur welcomed their beautiful baby girl into the world via surrogacy last September.

They have been praised for documenting their life as new dads so honestly since Blake was born.
