Big Brother star Brian Dowling has revealed that he and his husband Arthur Gourounlian know which one of them is the biological dad of their new baby girl.
The thrilled couple – who got married in 2015 – welcomed baby Blake Maria Rose Dowling Gourounlian earlier this month and have said they are "totally in love with her".
Brian and Dancing With The Stars judge Arthur used an egg donor to make their dream of being parents come true and Brian's sister Aoife carried and gave birth to the baby.

TV legend Brian, 44, has now shared that the couple knows who the biological dad is and that one of them is in "limbo" legally for now.
"We know who the biological father is, but we haven't disclosed that," he told RSVP magazine.
"Legally, that leaves one of us in limbo for two years, one of us has no rights as a father."
The publication said that because of Irish laws, whoever is not the biological father will later be able to apply for guardianship of the little girl.
Brian, who won Big Brother in 2001, also said that legally Aoife is the biological mother, although they used a donor.
The couple announced Blake's arrival on Instagram last week, saying that she was born on September 1 and weighed 7lb 4oz.
"We @gourounlian are absolutely totally in love with her and can't believe she's here and is ours," Brian wrote.

"Now, where do we even start with you @effidy_dowling_ you are a saint to us and we will forever be grateful to you for the rest of our lives.
"Baby Blake can't wait for her Aunty Aoife to spoil her."
