For the past four years, Joe has been dating Paul, a man who was also married for many years. Libby, one of Chris's friends while she was married to Joe, is now her life partner.

For Alex, four parents are definitely better than two! "I feel lucky because every day I have four loving parents to come home to, and they're just there for me," he says.

Chris says she decided to come on The Oprah Show to prove to people that gay parents are no different than straight parents. "There are wonderful, fabulous families out there raising great kids like [Alex], and some of us are gay and some of us aren't," she says.
