OUR MANIFESTO: This is what YEN.com.gh believes in
A trio of dads have wound up victorious from their battle to have all three their names on their baby girl's birth certificate - and they could not be any happier. The throuple started with only Ian Jenkins and Alan Mayfield, who had been together for several years before welcoming a third man, Jeremy Hodges, into the relationship.
Before long the trio was ready to welcome a little girl into their unique situation and so the threesome became a foursome as baby Piper became the newest addition to their unique little family.
Thereafter, the three dads embarked on an arduous process of getting all three of their names as parents on the birth certificate of the adorable little one and they won, something they have expressed great happiness about.
"The fact that Piper has three parents isn't a big deal. I have three parents myself, my mother, father and my stepmother," said Ian in a Huffington Post article.
Speaking in a New York Post article, Ian said that they made sure to get all three names on the birth certificates to ensure that they would all have equal visitation rights and every other benefit that comes with being a parent should the throuple split up for whatever reason.

"Arewa men that have been married for 5+ years I think it's time you start looking at us in Batch B. We are due for recruitment but the line is not moving."
