It’s been a special few weeks for Brian Dowling

Brian Dowling welcomed his second child into the world last month and has been busy sharing updates with his thousands of followers online.

The dad-of-two and his husband Arthur have been delighting their followers with updates about baby Blu, but their recent update is the cutest by far.

Brian recently ventured out with his two daughters for the first time.

He admitted he was a little nervous but he quickly realised he was pro.

Alongside a photo of Brian and his two daughters, he said: “Whilst Papa worked today, Daddy ventured outside with his two little girls together for the very first time ever!

“Honestly, I was a little nervous working the double buggy, especially with it being Blu’s first time ever in anything & my first time ever using one, but minutes in, I was working it like a PRO,” he added.

Brian said both his girls were perfectly behaved during their first family outing.

“Blake was in her element at the front & just kept saying “hi” to everyone. Blu was over it on the way back & insisted on being taken out & carried the rest of the way home.

“I had some of sisters & nieces & nephews to keep us company. Blake is OBSESSED with Harvey. She woke up at 4 am the other morning & was saying “Harvey, Harvey, Harvey”

“I know Baby Blu is only ten days old, but I feel like she has been with Arthur, Blake & I FOREVER,” the dad-of-two gushed.

Brian and Arthur welcomed baby Blu via surrogacy in June. Brian’s sister Aoife was their surrogate and he has described her as an absolute hero.
