WATCH: Hallmark Embraces Same-Sex Love for Valentine's Day


Two new advertisements from Hallmark feature real same-sex couples exchanging Valentine's Day cards, and kissing each other. 

Valentine's Day is 10 days away and the people at Hallmark want LGBT couples to know they're not being left out this year.

New video advertisements featuring real-life men and women in same-sex relationships -- two gay dads and a lesbian couple -- are now playing on YouTube, reported Towleroad.

In the commercials for Hallmark's #CareEnough ad campaign, the dads reveal they fell in love at first sight, as Jason wrote in his card to Robin:

"Within moments of meeting each other we felt we had already known each other for years. Looking back it must have been because I was meeting my best friend and soulmate. Thank you for convincing me that love at first sight truly does exist."

The couple are featured in a 15-second spot as well as another longer "Backstory" video running a little over one minute, in which they kiss, and talk about getting to live out their dream of becoming dads. "We've always wanted a baby," said Robin. "But as two men, it was a complicated, difficult process."

The card company has also released two Valentine's Day videos featuring a lesbian couple, LaParis and Karisia. In her card, LaParis wrote to Karisia: "Of all the people and all the places in the whole wide planet, you are the one for me."

Watch each couple's videos below.
