Brandi and Lawrence were close friends who met at work, where the idea of starting a family together casually came up. Nearly four years later, they are raising their two-year-old son Hartley as a blended family that includes Brandi and Lawrence, as well as their respective partners. But what really sets them apart from other families is that Lawrence is gay and Brandi is a lesbian. Today you’ll hear from Brandi and Lawrence about their pregnancy journey, their approach to dating, and why Courtney Cox sent a camera crew to follow them around for nine months.
