The first recorded baby born in France this year is doubly blessed with two mothers.
A woman in Moulin, France named Maude is the biological mother to newborn Sacha, and has sole legal rights over the child. According to the Daily Telegraph, Maude and her partner Delphine had to go to a sperm bank in Belgium in order to become pregnant, because gay couples are not allowed to do so in France.
"We were very lucky because we only had one insemination, which worked right away, so everyone was ready to start our little family," her partner Delphine said.
The women say they wish to wed if the French Parliament approves a marriage equality bill, which the government is currently debating. As the government gears up to consider the bill, those in opposition are preparing for a protest on Jan. 13.
