[[caption-width-right:300:[[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/s_day_3017.png Who's your daddy, Vivio?]]]]

->''"Ever since then, I have had two mothers. Well, this is a little bit unusual, but both of them are my precious mothers."''
-->-- '''Vivio''', ''Manga/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaViVid''.

The two may be lovers, who have now become a family through adoption, a helpful donor, or [[HomosexualReproduction through the wonders of magic or science]] with added likelihood of PatchworkKids if the latter. The two may be close siblings (but not ''[[IncestIsRelative that]]'' close) or the best of friends, with one of them wishing to help out their single parent buddy. The two may be in that very fine line between the previous two examples, giving much ShipTease and HoYay to the delight of their fans.

Whatever the reason, it's all the same: A family unit that cheerfully ignores the traditional view of a family requiring a father and mother, by having two (or more!) parental figures of the same gender. Nevertheless, one of these characters may be referred to by the opposite gender parental term; sometimes in personal amusement, sometimes out of jest, sometimes to fit with the standard family unit. In fiction, CastSpeciation will usually result in the two parents fitting into a father and a mother role anyway.

Usually the child will be the same gender as their parents. If done poorly and strictly, it can touch the UnfortunateImplication that a child can't be raised properly without a parent of the same sex, or that lesbians are misandrists and gays are misogynists.

The name of this trope came from ''[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Heather_Has_Two_Mommies Heather Has Two Mommies]]'', a children's book by Lesléa Newman and Diana Souza that drew the ire of many conservative groups for its proposed use in the New York school system to portray a lesbian family as normal, wholesome, and happy.

Taken to its literal extreme, this trope results in HomosexualReproduction. Compare AllLesbiansWantKids.

[[folder:Advertising]]
* Finnish TV ad for a teleoperator had a little school boy asking tough questions of his dad. One of them was a sincerely delivered "why does Jani have two dads - and I have only one?" Awww.
* JCPenney has run Mother's Day and Father's Day ads depicting families two of the appropriate gendered parents.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:{{Anime}} and {{Manga}}]]
* ''[[LyricalNanoha Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha]]'' has Vivio with Nanoha and Fate (pictured above). Vivio calling them both "Mama" for the first time was accompanied by the sound of the Nanoha/Fate shippers going '''{{Squee}}'''. The Has Two Mommies trope is later [[LampshadeHanging Lampshaded]] by a minor character.
--> "Ah I see, so she's their daughter... [[FridgeLogic wait a second here...]]"
** The third [[FourthWallMailSlot Megami Sound Stage]] suggested that Fate is being sent on deep space missions to distance herself from being considered Vivio's mama. This [[ArmedWithCanon ultimately proved futile]] since Vivio still sees Fate as her mama four years later in ''MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaViVid'', and Vivio notes in the "Second Mother's Day" one shot that despite her frequent (and often, unexpected) absences, she sees her as her second mother and gives her gifts for Father's day.
** Fate once tells Vivio that she has two mothers herself, albeit in a different sense, mentioning Precia as her biological mother and Lindy as her adoptive one.
** And before all of that, we have Reinforce Zwei, who Hayate created based off of data from the original Reinforce and herself.
* After the events of ''Manga/SailorMoon's'' Infinity arc, Hotaru becomes the adopted daughter of [[ButchLesbian Haruka-papa]] [[LipstickLesbian and Michiru-mama]], and is watched over by Setsuna-mama as well.
* Pretty much by series definition, the parents of the characters in ''{{Vandread}}''. Ezra, one of the female side characters, was pregnant with the child of Rebecca, another female crew member, via [[HomosexualReproduction technological gene-mixing]]. Males from Tarraku are made in ex-utero factories and raised in orphanages, and so get no parents at all.
** The higher class Tarraku men can choose who to reproduce with, and Bart obviously knows of at least one parent, so the "no parents" bit seems to be confined to the third class citizens.
* ''Anime/OjamajoDoremi'''s second and third seasons center around four/five 10/11 year old girls (Doremi, Aiko, Momoko, Hazuki and Onpu) and a 5/6 year old girl (Pop) taking care of the baby Hana-chan.
* The main character of the CLAMP manga ''ManOfManyFaces'' has two mothers who were twin sisters, which he called Mommy A and Mommy B. He also had a father who's mostly a DisappearedDad except one time he disguised himself as Santa to see his son on Christmas Eve.
* In ''LightNovel/KyoKaraMaoh'' Greta ends up with two adopted daddies, Yuri and Wolfram.
* Two of the women in ''IonoTheFanatics'' [[HomosexualReproduction have a child together]] through the power of science in the epilogue.
* The Arume in ''BlueDrop'' have [[HomosexualReproduction two female parents]] by definition, since [[OneGenderRace that race only consists of women]]. They also only interbreed with earth women, so their hybrid offspring has two mothers as well.
* One episode of ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'' featured a Nurse Joy reflecting back on her childhood. In the positions of encouraging her in her ambitions, we see not a mother and father...but a pair of Nurse Joys. Just one more headscratcher in the mystery that is [[InexplicablyIdenticalIndividuals the Joy/Jenny collective]].
** ''Anime/PokemonTheFirstMovie'' has a [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b70GRNYnacI non-indicative Japanese teaser trailer]] which shows a grown-up Misty presumably in a relationship with the blue-haired lady from the port. The trailer shows them with what appears to be their daughter.
** Another episode had a Smoochum with ''three'' [[OneGenderRace mommies]].
* ''Almost'' there in ''Manga/PetShopOfHorrors'': Regardless of Leon being Chris's brother, he's a parental figure... and so is Count D.
* The behind-the-dust-cover {{omake}} to ''TheDayOfRevolution'' features a child referred to only as 'Junior,' who was raised by Megumi and Makoto. Various origins for the kid are proposed in order of increasing unlikelihood.
* Not a straight example ([[HoYay har]]) but Fay D. Flourite of ''TsubasaReservoirChronicle'' likes to think of himself and Kurogane (Dad) as parental figures to Syaoran and Sakura.
** This is made a lot more serious later in the series with [[spoiler: Real!Syaoran]] for whom they basically are surrogate parents. The way they act is just...it's just ''this''.
* In a similar vein, Tamaki from ''Manga/OuranHighSchoolHostClub'' sees himself as a father figure to the rest of the club (and especially Haruhi). With Kyouya, apparently, being the mother...
* [[spoiler:Cibo and Sana-Kan]] from ''{{Blame}}''. In a very literal sense, considering the child is composed of genes from both of them, with [[spoiler:Cibo]] as the mother, and [[spoiler:Sana-Kan]] as the father. Somehow.
* In ''SpiderMan-J'' (a manga version of Spider-Man apparently unrelated to ''Spider-Man: The Manga'') Sho Amano's parents aren't dead, just [[ParentalAbandonment in the US]]. His aunt, Mami Amano, nonetheless insists she's his mother, much to his annoyance.
* Bikky of ''Manga/{{FAKE}}'' is adopted by Ryo, who goes on to date Dee. There's no sign that Dee adopts him as well, but [[spoiler: they all do eventually move in together]].
* Motoko Gettou in ''{{Change 123}}'' has ''three'' fathers, and it is each of their training that lead to... her SplitPersonality problem.
* One more from CLAMP, though it was more of a joke: an omake of ''LegalDrug'' was an alternate universe in which Kakei explained to his son Kazahaya that he was remarrying to Saiga (Rikuo's father), and asked Kazahaya to call him "Mommy" from now on, "to avoid confusion". Kazahaya's brain protested.
* Alexi in ''Manga/ShinkuuYuusetsu'' was raised by his two daddy figures; the biological father and his (non-sexual) male partner. [[spoiler:He eventually gets to meet his mother, but opts to go back home to be with his own partner and father(s).]]
* This is implied at the end of ''Manga/WildRose'' with Kiri, Mikhail and Camille.
* In ''Manga/HappyYarouWedding'', Shouta, a five year old with a MissingMom, is delighted to have "Yuuhi-mama" become part of the family when he and Todou get together. Yuuhi is less than keen on the name.
* In ''Manga/SweetGuiltyLoveBites'' [[spoiler: Ryuna]] eventually gets a second mommy in [[spoiler:Mayu]] in the form of a "helper", even if it is kept quiet.
* A roundabout version of this is in ''GunslingerGirl''. [[spoiler: Speranza is Triela's biological daughter (thanks to Hillshire preserving her eggs), but it's Roberta Guellfi who carried, gave birth to, and raised her.]]
* ''Manga/SorenariNiShinkenNandesu'' has Oosawa raising his [[CheerfulChild daughter]] Chizu as a single working father after his [[AmicablyDivorced divorce]]. Enter [[StraightGay Yoshioka]], who is [[DoggedNiceGuy interested]] in Oosawa, and [[BoysLoveGenre in no time flat]], Chizu has herself two daddies.
* In the [[{{omake}} extra chapter]] of ''Manga/EbisuSanAndHoteiSan'', [[spoiler: [[CheerfulChild Hana]]]] explains to her friend that she has three mommies: [[spoiler: [[LazyBum her biological mother]], her aunt "Mayo-chan," and her aunt's "[[GirlsLove friend]]."]]
* This is implied to have happened to a minor character in ''Manga/OnePiece'', thanks to [[spoiler: Emporio Ivankov's Horu Horu no Mi powers. One of the functions of his Devil Fruit is to gender flip someone with his "Emporio Onna Hormone"]]. When the character comes to try and kill him as revenge for his father getting turned into a female ([[ItMakesSenseInContext don't ask...]]), he gets turned into one himself, with [[spoiler: Ivankov]] providing this line.
-->[[spoiler: '''Ivankov:''']] Two mothers and one daughter. Doesn't that sound lovely?
* In ''AxisPowersHetalia'', through some combination of {{Fanon}} and historical context, [[ShrinkingViolet Canada]] has a father figure in both [[AnythingThatMoves France]] and [[{{Tsundere}} England]]. Of course, that's not necessarily a good thing, considering they hate each other and have a nasty tendency to abandon and ignore him.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Comedy]]
* PeterSellers's LP sketch "Auntie Rotter" has Auntie Rotter pointing Daddy out to the children in her care and saying "Wouldn't it be lovely to have two Daddies? Well, we can arrange that!". Her unorthodox way of achieving this is to [[spoiler: have the children chop Daddy in half.]]
* A joke: "You mean my mom's a lesbian? Which one?"
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Comic Books]]
* In ''TheAuthority'', Apollo and Midnighter are a gay couple who adopted superpowered baby girl Jenny Quantum, who refers to them as 'Daddy Midnighter' and 'Daddy Apollo'... except for once when she called Apollo 'Happy Daddy'.
* Rafael from ''DykesToWatchOutFor'' is sometimes addressed as "Heather" by his classmates. His mothers, Toni ("Mommy") and Clarice ("Meema"), do not approve of his violent responses to this.
* ''StrangersInParadise'' ends with [[spoiler:Francine and Katchoo raising their respective offspring together]].
* In ''JanesInLove'' we find out that Brain Jane has two dads (who we have every reason to believe are a couple).
* Mystique and Destiny are like this with Rogue in ''Comicbook/{{X-Men}}''.
* WonderWoman had ''an entire island'' of mommies, sisters and surrogate daughters seeing as the Amazons are pretty much a OneGenderRace.
* In ''ComicBook/TheSandman'', Foxglove and Hazel raise a son together (biologically Hazel's via a clueless encounter).
* Post-Crisis ComicBook/{{Superboy}}'s biological parents are Superman... [[FoeYay and Lex Luthor]], made through cloning. Socially speaking, he's pretty much raised by Superman and Supes's adoptive parents; Luthor is, with a few exceptions, very much the deadbeat dad.
* In ''{{Bamse}}'', Lille Skutt's brother lives together with another male [[FunnyAnimal rabbit]]. They recently (informally) adopted a foundling.
** This is a comic aimed to pre-schoolers. Yes, Sweden is awesome.
* [[AmeliaRules Amelia Louise]] [=McBride=] lives with her mother (divorced) and her cool aunt Tanner.
* [[Franchise/{{Batman}} Bruce Wayne]] and Alfred Pennyworth raised [[{{Nightwing}} Dick Grayson]] together.
* The first arc of the new ''Comicbook/YoungAvengers'' reveals that Miss America Chavez had two mothers, who died creating paradise for her, which she rejected and struck out to hero on her own.

[[folder:Fan Fic]]
* By the end of the ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'' fanfic ''Fanfic/NewFeelings'', [[LesYay Pearl and Garnet]] are blessed with a little boy named Jonah.
* In ''FanFic/SlightlyAltered'', Buwaro is adopted by [[EvilParentsWantGoodKids Azurai]] and Iratu. They end up being better parents than you'd think.
* Happens a lot in ''Franchise/HarryPotter'' fanfic, usually with magical explanations. One notable example is the fanfic ''Making Puppies'' which has Sirius and Remus have a child thanks to the {{fanon}} that Lupin apparently [[AssPull is a female while in werewolf form]].
** There are plenty of "Sirius and Remus raising Harry" fics.
*** Taken UpToEleven in Fanfic/{{Dangerverse}}.
** There is also a fanfic where Harry and Voldemort turn into cats, mate, turn back to normal, and then several months later Harry gives birth [[MindRape (don't ask how)]] to a healthy litter of kittens.
* Quite notable in ''WesternAnimation/KimPossible'' {{Fanfiction}}, where several fics have lead the [[FanPreferredCouple popular]] [[LesYay Kim/Shego]] couple to have children together, in different ways. Most well known examples include:
** [[http://hazurasinner.deviantart.com/art/KP-Precious-Memories-35083959 Kasy and Sheki]] (By far the most well known. Search for them in DeviantArt and you'll find ''dozens'' of fanarts!)
** [[http://angelickitty89.deviantart.com/art/Kigo-Love-82946481 Shin]] [[http://angelickitty89.deviantart.com/art/KP-Shin-and-Al-82980939 and]] [[http://angelickitty89.deviantart.com/art/KP-Al-Possible-95054402 Al]]
** [[http://yogurthfrost.deviantart.com/art/OIOB-first-family-photo-70695359 Todd]] [[http://yogurthfrost.deviantart.com/art/OIOB-Baby-Jayden-family-photo-70696010 and Jayden]]
** [[http://rinacat.deviantart.com/art/KP-Agni-and-Shego-77254514 Potentially Agni]] (If Kim ends up as adoptive mother)
** [[http://kigo-kids.deviantart.com/ Now there is even a group for the kids of Kim and Shego]]. Popular indeed.
* The ''Series/DoctorWho'' fic [[http://archiveofourown.org/series/7065 Ameila Pond Has Two Immortal Daddies]] is ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin.
* The anonymous fanfic on the ''AxisPowersHetalia'' KinkMeme ''[[http://hetalia-kink.livejournal.com/3274.html?thread=3701194#t3701194 Are You There God? It's Me, Canada]]'' has privately [[DeadpanSnarker Snarky!]]Canada growing up with his two dads, England and France. HilarityEnsues.
** For that matter, several fanfics have Canada and America being raised by England and France, making the [[FanNickname FACE family.]]
** Fandom often portrays [[HugeSchoolgirl Sweden]] and [[CloudCuckooLander Finland]] as cute little Sealand's two daddies.
* [[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/4676211/1/The_Fetus_Factor This]] ''[[SoulSeries Soul Calibur]]'' fanfic has Talim getting adopted by [[BrotherSisterIncest Cassandra, Sophitia]] ''and'' [[OT3 Taki]]. And that's not the wierdest thing that has happen so far.
* Shinji in ''FanFic/AeonNatumEngel'' was taken care of by two female agents before Gendo summons him.
* In the ''Literature/{{Twilight}}'' AlternateUniverse fic ''FanFic/{{Luminosity}}'', Gianna and Maggie are vampiric mates, and, through a surrogate mother, eventually have a human child named Molly.
* Some ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'' fics have Hakoda and Bato as Katara and Sokka's two daddies, raising them after their mother was killed. There are others meanwhile that portray the whole mentality of a village being like a big family, Katara, Sokka, and the rest of the children in the Water Tribe all to some extent having more than one mother and father.
** And in this fanfic about the future, [[http://vick330.deviantart.com/art/The-Latent-of-Korra-2-180825895 because we know how much Ty Lee loves Azula]]. [[SarcasmMode Of course this is perfectly justified]].
** Before we knew about Amon's backstory, there were some fics where Amon was Azula and Ty Lee's child because he was a villain and a chi-blocker.
* ''VideoGame/{{Touhou}}'' {{Fanon}} is that [[PhysicalGod Kanako and Suwako]] behave as Sanae's parents, and even probably raised her before they all moved to Gensoukyou. Bonus points for [[spoiler:Sanae being a [[FamousAncestor direct descendant of Suwako]]]].
** Pretty much any {{ship}} that results in children will end up this way, due to most pairings being between female characters.
* A popular trope in TheSocialNetwork fandom is to have Dustin react to Mark and Eduardo's issues as if his parents are divorcing. The other characters (especially Chris) usually think he's insane, but he's not entirely wrong.
* Heavily implied in ''FanFic/PowerRangersGPX''. The mere mention of "moms" by the Red Ranger is suspicious. [[spoiler: Not only has it been confirmed, but even the Yellow Ranger has two mommies!]]
* In the ''Series/{{Castle}}'' fanfic, ''[[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/7176396/1/Of_Finding_Innocence Of Finding Innocence]]'', Kate and Meredith come to a peaceful compromise over the issue of custody with Alexis by agreeing that they both be her mothers. So there, young Alexis Castle has two mommies and a daddy.
* Back when ''YoungAvengers'' was still new, fans got a lot of mileage out of the possibility of a Hulking / Wiccan kid, as the former is an alien shapeshifter.
* GenderFlipped and played with in 'Shadows Of The Past' as [[spoiler:Will]] literally has two sets of parents, [[spoiler:Decepticon]] and human. Though both of the [[spoiler:'Cons are 'male' by default]].
* ''DGrayMan'''s doujinshi [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uxMMs5gqkoI Family]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zT01tySt8ks Walker]] with [[HoYay Allen and Kanda]] raising two children who strangely appeared from seemingly nowhere and that resemble said parents when they were younger.
* Webcomic/{{Homestuck}} fic FanFic/{{Brainbent}}'s Sollux Captor has Dad One and Dad Two (he calls them this) Pollux Castor and Clubs Deuce.
* A couple of the children in TheEmiyaClan have this as a joke. Arika is technically [[VisualNovel/FateStayNight Shirou and Saber's]] daughter, but people like to say that she is Saber and [[VisualNovel/FateStayNight Rin's]] via a strap-on toy, given her {{Tsundere}} nature.
* After the release of both Film/TheAvengers and Film/TheAmazingSpiderman, fans have since constructed the headcanon of the [[http://www.tumblr.com/tagged/superfamily "Superfamily"]], with CaptainAmerica and IronMan being the daddies of a young [[SpiderMan Peter Parker]]. The rest of the Avengers, sometimes including Nick Fury or Loki, babysit while Tony and Steve are out.
* In ''[[http://www.potionsandsnitches.net/fanfiction/viewstory.php?sid=2489 Burnt]]'' Snape was considering blood-adopting Harry in order to keep Dumbledore from sending him back to his abusive relatives at the end of first year. Alastor Moody suggested that the potion would "take" more strongly with the blood of more than one magical parent in it, adding "I hear that havin’ two daddies nowadays is very fashionable."
* ''FanFic/TheElementsOfHarmonyAndTheSaviorOfWorlds'' states that [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic Celestia and Luna]] were created by the [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyAndFriends Princess Ponies]]. As such, they consider and refer to all six as their mothers.
* It has come up a couple times in the Yoruichi/Soi Fon ship for {{Manga/Bleach}}, notably [[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/7770926/1/All-of-the-Little-Things here]] and [[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/6514880/1/The-Cat-the-Bird-and-the-Bee here]].
* In the Lucky Star fanfic ''[[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/7550345/1/Lucky-Star-After-Story Lucky Star: After Story]]'', [[LesYay Konata and Kagami]] are a married couple, and they have a daughter named Kanata.
* FanFic/AGrowingAffection has Toshiro and Momo Inuzuka, the children of Hana Inuzuka and her wife Shizune. Technically, Toshiro is Hana's son and Momo is Shizune's daughter, but they are still biological siblings from the same sperm donor.
* By the end of [[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10071886/1/Ahsoka-and-Barriss-Full-Circle Ahsoka and Barris Full Circle]], the two have adopted four orphaned girls
* Several ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' fics, such as:
** ''FanFic/MyLittleMommies'', wherein the duos of Twilight and Rainbow Dash, Pinkie and Fluttershy, and Applejack and Rarity each become parents to a single foal created with their combined DNA via a magic mirror; it's later revealed that Derpy Hooves and Sparkler (canon name: Amethyst Star) had the same thing happen to them some years before, though Sparkler was unaware of exactly what had happened at the time.
** Several fics have Twilight and Rainbow Dash adopt Scootaloo, or are heading in that direction. Examples include ''[[http://www.fimfiction.net/story/90876/rainbooms-and-romance Rainbooms and Romance]]'', its sequel ''[[http://www.fimfiction.net/story/164809/a-life-of-love A Life of Love]]'', and ''[[http://www.fimfiction.net/story/105159/under-our-wing Under Our Wing]]'', by the same author; ssjgokillo's ''[[http://www.fimfiction.net/story/104775/sparkle-dash-family-tmp-stories Sparkle Dash Family: TMP Stories]]''; The Abyss's ''[[http://www.fimfiction.net/story/146025/ill-always-be-here-for-you I'll Always Be Here For You]]''; and bats' ''FanFic/SpellboundFireflies''.
** Discussed in ''[[FanFic/RealityChecksNyxverse Nightmare Night and Nyx]]''. The realization that Nyx is technically related to Twilight by blood leads to the realization that she may also be related to Luna [[ItMakesSenseInContext by the same reasoning]]. After an epic SpitTake from Celestia [[spoiler:(or was it Luna herself?)]] disguised as Nightmare Moon, she summarily discards the notion. The sequel ''Alicornundrum'' does show that Luna has come to regard her as a little sister of sorts.

[[folder:Film]]
* In ''Film/HaroldAndKumarGoToWhiteCastle'', Tarik, the guy Harold and Kumar meet in jail has two dads.
* ''ThreeMenAndABaby'', the illegitimate child of one of the three bachelors arrives at their doorstep, and their parental instincts take over. (No gays involved here.)
* ''The Incredibly True Adventure of Two Girls in Love'' is about two lesbians, one of which lives together with her aunt, her aunt's girlfriend and her aunt's ex who needs a place to stay. Three mommies!
* Could be said to partly be the case in ''Film/{{Junior}}'', a comedy where a man (Arnold Schwarzenegger) [[MisterSeahorse becomes pregnant.]] Although he winds up in a relationship with the woman who (unknowingly) provided the egg, at one point the other male scientist who pioneered the technique (Danny Devito) comments "It's my baby, too."
** [[DesignerBabies How many fathers]] do their characters in ''Film/{{Twins}}'' have?
* ''Film/TheBirdcage'' shows a later state; a boy having been raised by two gay men, two ''very'' gay men who run and star at a drag club, has grown to be a sane, stable, heterosexual adult as the film opens. One of the men is his biological father as he was conceived during a one night, "see what those straight guys are always going on about" affair.
** Val (the young man in question) explains it perfectly "I'm the only guy in my fraternity who ''doesn't'' come from a broken home!"
* In ''PracticalMagic'' (both the film and the book) Gillian and Sally Owens are orphans who are raised by their aunts.
* ''TheWeddingBanquet'' ends with [[spoiler: Wai-tung, Simon and Wei-wei all raising the baby together.]]
* Recent Swedish comedy ''Patrik, Age 1.5'' has a gay couple wanting to adopt a little boy and accidentally ending up with a teenager.
* Merlin in the miniseries ''Film/{{Merlin}}'' has two literal mothers, Mab and the woman who gave birth to him, and Ambrosia, the woman who raised him.
* ''TheKidsAreAllRight'' is entirely about one of these families.
* Used humorously at the end of ''BestInShow''.
* In the Icelandic film ''101 Reykjavík'' a middle-aged lesbian couple decide they want a baby together and will use a sperm donor. Then one of the women has a drunken one-night stand with her girlfriend's son and gets pregnant. The son is dismayed, but feels he can't tell his mother he's the baby's father. [[spoiler: The women end up raising the baby together with the son as part of their household.]]
* In ''Film/ThisFilmIsNotYetRated'' one of the private investigators turns out to be a lesbian mother.
** One of the interviewed film-makers is a lesbian mother as well -- something she [[DeadpanSnarker rather snarkily]] makes note of in light of the claims of the Motion Picture Association of America's frequent claims that its ratings board was staffed by 'average' parents, suggesting that their definition of 'average' probably didn't include people like her.
* ''Film/SleepawayCamp'': Angela and Peter's father was in a relationship with another man, whose fate following Mr. Baker's death is unrevealed.

[[folder:Literature]]
* ''JennyLivesWithEricAndMartin'' had a similar theme to ''{{Heather}}'' and caused outrage from [[BritishNewspapers the Daily Mail]] in 1980s Britain.
* ''Literature/DaddysRoommate'' also has a similar theme.
* Swindapa and Marion, the interracial lesbian couple in ''IslandInTheSeaOfTime'', adopt an abandoned baby girl, and name her Heather. They know about the book, they just have an odd sense of humor.
* Claudia in ''Literature/InterviewWithAVampire'' has both Lestat and Louis for vampire dads.
* In DavidEddings's ''{{Elenium}}'' stories, Sparhawk's squire [[spoiler:dies, leaving behind a wife and several sons. His squire also has an illegitimate son with another woman, and after his death, the women move in together and raise the children. The children simply call them their mothers. There is no sexual relationhip implied between the women]].
* In ''[[HeraldsOfValdemar The Last Herald Mage]]'' series by Mercedes Lackey, there are a pair of Hawkbrother adepts who raise a son together, who used a fellow Hawkbrother as a surrogate mother, as she wanted a child too, and agreed to have twins, one going with her, one going with the male couple.
* In ''Literature/FriedGreenTomatoesAtTheWhistleStopCafe,'' Idgie and Ruth lived together and raised Ruth's son together. The FilmOfTheBook implied they were in love but not lovers. The book [[HideYourLesbians implied everything it could without saying it]].
* Cyrus Finch ([=CyFi=]) in ''Literature/{{Unwind}}'' has two dads.
* In the ''[[DaughtersOfACoralDawn Daughters]]'' (of an unusually coloured time of day) books, this is true for just about all the secondary characters, being that they're a bunch of lesbians who've gone off and colonized a distant planet. In fact, the only cast members who have a mentioned father are the Unity, and he's not mentioned after the prologue. The author really was [[DoesNotLikeMen that gay]].
* In ''King & King & Family'', the sequel to ''King & King'' (a Dutch book that caused a lawsuit because some ass didn't like that "romantic attraction between two men is being presented to my seven-year-old as wonderful, and good and the way things should be"), the newlywed kings "find a lonely orphaned girl, whom they adopt and raise as a princess".
* Classical Swedish picture book ''Aunt Green, Aunt Brown and Aunt Lavender'' (with sequels) has the aunts in question adopting two little orphan children.
* Mordred from ''Franchise/TheDarkTower'' sort of fits this trope. He has two dads ([[spoiler:Roland]] and the Crimson King) ''and'' two moms ([[spoiler:Susannah]] and the succubus Mia) plus a [[spoiler:semen carrier/impregnator]] extra parent in one of the 6 elemental demons. It fits here because he inherits most of his traits from his fathers, who he calls his White Daddy and Red Daddy.
* ''Literature/HaltingState'' by Creator/CharlesStross casually refers early on to Sergeant Sue Smith's wife and their son, Davey.
* A fair few in the StarTrekNovelVerse. In the Literature/StarTrekEnterpriseRelaunch, Trip Tucker's brother and his husband have adopted a son together. In StarTrekTheLostEra: ''The Buried Age'', among the supporting characters, there are two female scientists who are married and raising children. In the same series, in the novel ''Serpents Among the Ruins'', one character is shown to have two male parents, and a Romulan with an (adult) son mentions a mate of the same sex. There are probably others.
** Plus of course, four-sexed Andorians (with two sexes looking default "male" and two default "female" have both two mommies and two daddys by default, though that's cheating of course.
* ''TheVirginSuicides'' by Jeffrey Eugenides includes a character named Trip Fontaine, a popular boy being raised by his father and his father's boyfriend, Donald.
* In WenSpencer's Literature/UkiahOregon series the main character, Ukiah Oregon, is a former feral child raised with his [[HomosexualReproduction sister]] Callie by a lesbian couple.
** Wen Spencer also wrote ''Literature/ABrothersPrice'', which takes place in a world where males are so rare that they marry every sister in a family, and no one ever speaks of just "mother", always "mothers". Men get the brunt of childcare duties, but as they are rather fragile, if a husband dies without leaving an old enough son it's left to the mothers to raise the children.
* The children's book ''And Tango Makes Three'' is all about two male penguins at the Central Park Zoo in New York who take care of an egg, and then raise the resulting baby penguin, that another penguin couple cannot. BasedOnATrueStory, the 2 penguins eventually drifted apart in RealLife.
* The ''LeftBehind'' Antichrist villain Nicolae Carpathia had two biological fathers who were both gay, and was raised mostly by his mother and Viv Ivins until Nicolae and Viv had the mother disposed of. Later on in his life, Nicolae had [[BuryYourGays his two fathers disposed of as well]]. And in the Dramatic Audio presentation of ''Glorious Appearing'', Viv Ivins gets [[RocksFallEveryoneDies killed by a giant hailstone]].
* ''Literature/SingYouHome'' by JodiPicoult is about a lesbian couple trying to use frozen embryos to have a child.
* Since women are not allowed on the planet [[Literature/VorkosiganSaga Athos]], ''every'' non-immigrant has two Daddies. Reproduction is handled by taking a sperm sample from the biological father and combining it with an ovum extracted from carefully preserved tissue cultures. The resulting fetus is then developed to term in a uterine replicator.'
* In Creator/IsaacAsimov's ''Literature/LuckyStarr'' series, the protagonist's parents were killed when he was a child, and he was raised by his father's two best friends:
-->David Starr ''was'' [Conway's] son; his and Augustus Henree's. ... They were both mother and father to him...
* GenderFlipped in the ChaosWalking trilogy, in which the main character, due to the death of of the women in the town and his biological father, is raised by an AmbiguouslyGay couple. He still regards them as his real parents.
* Jenchae's parents are both women in ''Literature/TheHourBeforeMorning'', which isn't a big deal in the novel's future (though the fact that one's from TheEmpire and the other from LaResistance ends up being insurmountable).
* In ''Literature/WeetzieBat'', Weetzie wanted to have a child, but her boyfriend refused to, so she had sex with her best friend and his boyfriend. She eventually made up with her boyfriend, but no one knew who the biological father of the child was, so the four of them raised her together.
* In the novel (and film adaptations of) ''Imitation of Life'', a white widow with a daughter takes in a black maid who also has a daughter and they form a FamilyOfChoice, raising their children together. In the 1950s film, Susie actually sees Annie as more of a mother figure than her own mother.
* A variation occurs in the ''Literature/SecretSeries'', where Cass has two ''grandfathers'' instead. (Which is to say, two grandfathers [[AmbiguouslyGay who live together and come as a pair,]] not in the usual sense of having both a maternal and paternal grandfather.) Neither is biologically related to her or her mother, [[HonoraryUncle they just like to think of each other as family.]]

* Season 3 of ''Series/RizzoliAndIsles'' [[spoiler:Frost's Mother and roommate come to town. The others figure out they are a couple. Towards the end of the episode Frost toasts his mom and her partner. Mom is shocked he knew. He says why do you think I kept inviting you to Massachuetts. The partner tells her I told you you were underestimating him.]]
* One episode of ''Series/{{Amen}}'' had sisters Amelia and Cassietta deciding to co-adopt a baby, ending up with a situation like the one in ''Patrik, Age 1.5'' above. The episode ended with their son [[StatusQuoIsGod deciding to join the military]].
* Hal from ''BeingHuman'' was raised by six whores in a brothel, he didn't know which one was his actual mother, but loved them all anyway.
* The Henrickson kids on ''Series/BigLove'' have three mommies, who often seem more emotionally involved with each other than with their mutual husband; some of the other polygamist families are even more complicated.
* ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer''
** After the events of season 5, kid sis Dawn is raised by lesbian witches Willow and Tara for a good portion of season 6. Though one could make the argument that the entire Scooby Gang (including Spike, if in a Disreputable Uncle kind of way) helped, it's quite clear that Dawn sees Willow and Tara as surrogate parents - there's a reason she became their ShipperOnDeck. She was close to them during season 5 for that matter, and stayed overnight at their apartment on several occasions.
** It is also, however, quite clear that she has formed some kind of bond with Spike, as he actually has allowed her to hang out at his crypt now and then and has, at least once, told her stories about his past exploits (as in, murdering entire families), and has been trusted with watching over her a few times.
** In the canonical "Season 8" comic series she actually tells [[PromotionToParent Buffy]] that she sees Willow as her mother-figure, prompting some angst from Buffy. (Tara, by this point, [[spoiler:[[BuryYourGays has died]]]]).
** Strengthening the Willow and Tara argument, the latter meets with Dawn after she's left Willow in [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything a scene very remniscent of a divorced parent trying to keep contact with her child]].
-->'''Tara:''' Good god, that's a lot of shake. I mean, I know, part of our big movie and milkshake fun day, but... good god, that's a lot of shake!
-->'''Dawn:''' (laughs) Helps to wash down the Raisinettes.
-->'''Tara:''' Promise me that you will eat something green tonight. Leafy green, not... gummi green. The movie was fun.
-->'''Dawn:''' Yeah. It was ironic when all those cute inner-city kids taught their coach a valuable lesson.
-->'''Tara:''' You know that I will always be there for you, right... There, there was actually more of a lead-in when I practiced that at home.
-->'''Dawn:''' ...I know.
-->'''Tara:''' It's just... I wanted you to know that... my moving out had nothing to do with you, and I, I will never stop loving you.
-->'''Dawn:''' I know... Do you think you'll ever get back together?
-->'''Tara:''' I wish I knew.
-->'''Dawn:''' But you still love her.
-->'''Tara:''' Very much. I just... sometimes... other things get in the way.
* In the ''Series/DoctorWho'' episode "The Shakespeare Code", Lilith has Bloodtide and Doomfinger, and it's [[OneGenderRace probably literal]].
* ''Series/{{Friends}}'' has Ross's former wife, Carol, and her partner Susan. Ross's son, Ben, splits his time between his dad and moms. In one episode, Ben refers to Chandler as "Daddy." [[spoiler: Of course, at the end of the show, it's indicated Ben ends up with three when its made clear that Ross and Rachel are back together, this time for good.]]
-->'''Ross:''' No no--one daddy, two ''mommies''.
* ''Series/FullHouse''. It's right there in the opening paragraph of its page.
* Rachel Berry on ''Series/{{Glee}}'' has two gay dads, and it is unknown which of the two is her actual father as they mixed their sperm together and used a turkey baster to impregnate her surrogate mother.
** The joke here is that one dad is black and the other white... so it's pretty obvious which one is the bio father. Rachel hasn't clued into this though.
*** Except now it's not with [[Series/TheOtherDarrin the recasting]] of the dads [[{{Retcon}} it is now unclear]] who is her biological father.
* Olivia and Natalia on ''GuidingLight''. Started out as a platonic version of this, but has lately become [[SuddenlySexuality something more]].
* Mohinder and Matt raising Molly in ''Series/{{Heroes}}''. It was...weird, and the [[{{Shipping}} shippers]] ''loved'' it.
** And Claire's biological mom moved in with her and her adoptive family.
*** At the start of Volume Four, Claire had restored contact with the Petrelli family, resulting in Nathan Petrelli becoming her second father. Both here and in Volume Three, Claire had the unenviable distinction of having ''three'' parents involved in her life.
** Only temporary, but how about Hiro and Ando looking after Baby Matt Parkman?
* In the sixth season premiere of ''Series/HowIMetYourMother'', Cindy (a girl Ted struck out with on their first date) is dating another woman. In a flash-forward the couple are seen posing for a photo with their daughter.
-->"So no, that girl wasn't your mother. She ended up being someone else's mother. They both did."
* ''KateAndAllie'', which had two divorced women living together with the combined three children from their marriages. It is implied that there is no HoYay going on.
* ''LessThanPerfect'''s Owen Pronsky was raised by his two lesbian moms.
* ''Series/{{Lost}}'' has a heterosexual example, after the end Aaron has two mommies as he ends up with both Kate and Claire raising him.
* ''Series/MalcolmInTheMiddle'' briefly references a 'cousin Nancy' who has two fathers.
-->'''Reese:''' Two dads as your parents? That house has to be a dude's paradise!
* ''Series/ModernFamily'' has gay couple Cam and Mitchell adopting Baby Lily in the first episode.
* ''Series/MyTwoDads'', a sitcom about two guys going after the same woman, who found themselves [[ChildrenRaiseYou taking care of her daughter after she dies]].
* Coop in ''Series/NurseJackie'' has two mommies in the overtly lesbian sense.
* There was a lot of controversy a few years ago about a segment on the Australian kids show ''PlaySchool'' that featured a girl that had "Two mummies". Various sources say that either they were indeed a lesbian couple, or that it was actually the girl's step-mother, with the biological mother on a custody visit.
** They were a lesbian couple. The little girl, Brenna Harding, now a teenager, went on to star in ''Puberty Blues'', and thanked her mums in her speech for the Logie award she won.
* As was Chuck from ''PushingDaisies'', [[spoiler: although one of them actually ''is'' her mother.]]
* Romey and Lisa in the original ''QueerAsFolk'', and Lindsay and Melanie in the US version.
** The US version also had Ben and Michael adopting [[spoiler:Hunter, an HIV-positive teen hustler]].
* ''Series/SabrinaTheTeenageWitch'' was practically raised by her two motherly aunts ([[HeterosexualLifePartners they're sisters]]).
** And to help us make the comparison easier, Zelda introduces herself and Hilda as "Sabrina's aunts" at a parent-teacher meeting, then very quickly points out that they're "Sisters! Not an alternative couple!" Since they've been around for centuries, it's safe to assume they've been MistakenForGay at some point or another.
** Both have brought boyfriends home, including their fight over Mr. Craft, probably helps to clarify this.
* ''Series/TheSarahJaneAdventures'': Luke has Sarah Jane and Mrs. Wormwood.
* Franky Fitzgerald in the Third Generation of ''Series/{{Skins}}'' kids has two ex-army dads, who already appear to be the only parents in the entire series who take an interest in their kids.
* Cassandra Fraiser of ''Series/StargateSG1'', being rescued from a devastated homeworld and then co-parented by Sam Carter and Janet Fraiser, who wind up becoming best friends as a result.
* In ''SugarRush'' Kim's next door neighbour Tom has two dads and is constantly concerned that people will think he is also gay.
* ''Series/TheTraceyUllmanShow'' had a recurring skit with a teenage girl and gay dads.
* ''Series/TwoAndAHalfMen'': Jake lives with his mother during the week, and with his father and paternal uncle on the weekends.
* Henry from ''Series/OnceUponATime'' has Emma, his biological mother, and Regina, his adopted mother.
* ''Series/TooCute'' has the episode "Kitten Cottonballs", where Tonkinese cat Queenie and her elder daughter Princess have their current litters only one day apart and raise them together.
* ''Series/TheFosters'' is about a lesbian couple with one biological and two adopted children that take in two additional foster children.
* ''Series/UnderTheDome'' has an interracial lesbian couple and their teenage daughter stuck in Chester's Mill after the dome comes down. It seems as if it's a fairly progressive town, as they've only been harassed over their sexuality once, and the racial aspect has yet to come up. [[spoiler:One mommy dies in episode 7.]]
* Series/{{Hannibal}} has a rather twisted example between [[Literature/TheSilenceOfTheLambs Hannibal Lecter]] and FBI special investigator [[TheProfiler Will Graham]] with a serial killer's daughter that the two take care of after her father tried to [[OffingTheOffspring murder her]]. Will genuinely wants to protect her from the backlash of the public, the suspicions of his superiors of her part in the murders, and then partly due to guilt he feels for killing her father. Hannibal's intentions are...less noble. Mainly, [[spoiler: making sure Abigail doesn't tell Will he was the one who called her house that day, as that would out him as the copycat killer]]. Exploited by Hannibal after Will finds out that Abigail [[spoiler: killed Nicholas Boyle and Hannibal helped hide the body, which was already [[XanatosSpeedChess part of another set up]]]]. He even refers to the two of them as [[HoYay "her fathers"]] which has given them the FanNickname "Murder Family".
* Bob and David have a daughter together in the ''Series/MrShow'' episode "Operation: Hell on Earth." They're never stated to be in a romantic relationship, but she is ''their'' daughter. She grows up to resent them, but probably not because they're both men but because they're [[StageMom Stage Dads]] who order her to tap dance, even as an adult.
* ''Series/{{Psych}}'': Lassiter's mom has a female partner. Lassie apparently struggled with this initially, but it looks like he's come to terms with it since [[spoiler: they both walked him down the aisle at his wedding]] in season 7.
* ''Series/RaisingHope'' has Barney and his two mothers.
--> "Mom? Put mom on."
* Sophia in ''Series/GreysAnatomy'': Callie [[LawOfInverseFertility accidentally got pregnant]] after having a one-night stand with [[PlatonicLifePartners best friend Mark]] after one of her break ups with Arizona. After making up with Arizona, who later became her wife, the three of them decided to raise the baby together. This continued until season 9 when [[spoiler: Mark was killed off after the plane crash.]]
* Played straight in ''Series/GoodLuckCharlie'' when Amy tells Bob that Charlie's newest playmate has two mommies (We later learn the girl is adopted). Bob is confused; which parent is he supposed to invite to the basement to watch sports?
* In the first episode of the sixth season of ''Series/LawAndOrderSpecialVictimsUnit'', a doctor implanted an embryo of a mother into another mother, resulting that the daughter has biological mother and a mother who gave birth to her and raised the child. TheStinger reveals that [[spoiler:the biological mother has three other children who were born by other mothers]].
* The TaiwaneseSeries ''Two Fathers'': Two single men raise a child together after her mother abandons her after giving birth. The mother didn't know which one was the real father, so she provided the hospital with both of their contact information.

* In ''TheTwentyFifthAnnualPutnamCountySpellingBee'', Logainne has two daddies.
* In the George Bernard Shaw play ''Misalliance'', TheAce attributes his vast knowledge to the fact that he had three fathers -- his biological father, his father's "pet philosopher" who lived in their house, and a priest with whom his mother was having an affair.
* Marie, in the comic {{opera}} ''[[LaFilleDuRegiment La Fille du Régiment]]'' was raised by an entire brigade of career soldiers, who found her abandoned on the battlefield. HilarityEnsues when her [[MissingMom long lost mother]] discovers her ''hundreds'' of dads.
* Brian Friel's ''Dancing at Lughnasa'' practically revolves around Michael's family structure; his mother and four aunts raise him between them, his uncle hangs around and is generally odd and his father turns up, messes everything up [[spoiler:and leaves]].

[[folder:Video Games]]
* ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid4'' with [[HoYay/MetalGearSolid Snake, Otacon]], and Sunny.
* One of the ads on a ''VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoSanAndreas'' radio station was for a TV sitcom featuring an orphaned girl living with her 5 adoptive "uncles". ''GTA'' being ''GTA'', it was pretty blatant that only one guy at most was an actual uncle.
-->'''Girl:''' I'm an emotionally abused orphan! Can't I get in on any of these groups hugs?\\
'''[='Uncle'=]:''' No, you stupid bitch!
* Ganondorf, the BigBad of ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime'', was raised by the Gerudo witch sisters Koume and Kotake, better known as the Twinrova sisters. Since the Gerudo are all female, except for one male every hundred years (Ganondorf being the only example shown in canon), they likely consider having two mothers to be normal. This is actually justified since Kotake and Koume were Twinrova when Ganondorf was conceived, which makes sense.
* In ''HarvestMoon'' Cute, or better yet "Sprite Station For Girl" since the "wedding" feature is [[HideYourLesbians absent]] from the non-Japanese versions, if you choose the [[RomanticTwoGirlFriendship Best Friend]] choice over marriage to any of the ''11'' bachelors, you eventually end up with a child who has two mommies.
* In ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'', you can obtain Pokémon eggs by [[HotSkittyOnWailordAction breeding any]] male and female Pokémon that are in the same egg group. The exception is Ditto, which can breed with nearly any Pokémon by transforming into it. Even if the other Pokémon's species [[OneGenderRace only has one sex.]]
** Also, due to [[GoodBadBugs glitches]], two Pokémon of the same gender can have eggs.
** And for the terms of the Everstone exploit (equipping the mother Poke with an Everstone causes its nature to carry to the young), Ditto is considered the mother. Even if the other Poke is female.
* [[ArsGoetia Belial and Nebiros]] have adopted [[AliceAllusion Alice]] as their surrogate daughter in ''Franchise/ShinMegamiTensei''. Mess with her and [[PapaWolf you]] ''[[PapaWolf will]]'' feel their wrath.
* Possible in ''VideoGame/TheSims'' series, through various means.
** There are no pre-created same-sex couples in ''The Sims'' series (yet), but there are a few instances of this trope playing out in other ways. Notable examples include the alien-hybrid baby Tycho Curious in ''The Sims 2'', who not only has two [[MisterSeahorse biological]] [[FaceFullOfAlienWingWong dads]] but is also raised by three men (his human father Pascal and Pascal's two brothers, Vidcund and Lazlo). Then there's the Single Moms household in ''The Sims 3'' which is headed by two women, Fiona [=McIrish=] and Molly French, best friends who share a house and are raising their kids (Fiona's teenage daughter River and Molly's toddler daughter Sandi) together.
* Possible and quite common with [[OneGenderRace the asari]] in ''Franchise/MassEffect''. They breed through melding of nervous systems, and are capable of doing it with any species or gender. Though their society frowns upon having two asari parents ("pureblood" is a racial slur among them), but it's not as uncommon as they would like to pretend, and females of other species are fair game, in any case.
** In particular, the character Liara T'Soni has had two asari mothers, though she never knew the one who "fathered" her, for the lack of better term ([[spoiler:there are strong hints in ''VideoGame/MassEffect2'' that it was Matriarch Aethyta]]). Her other mother was Matriarch Benezia, who turns evil [[spoiler:and is killed by Shepard's crew (possibly including Liara)]] in the first game.
*** Defied in the third game when you can actually meet Liara's father. After Shepard briefly calls her Liara's "other mother," she actually gets annoyed and says that she's her father, not another mother; to the asari, "mother" specifically refers to the one who physically carries the child to term. [[note]] [[FridgeLogic Things must get awkward whenever a female human and an asari desides to start a family.]][[/note]]
--> "No, I didn't pop her out. I'm her father!"
--> "I'm sorry, it's just that if you had been human, you would both be considered the mother, no matter who gave birth to her."
--> "Well I'm not human, am I? [[SophisticatedAsHell Anthropocentric bag of dicks.]]"
* If you end up with [[GayOption Helena]] in ''VideoGame/CuteKnightKingdom'' you may also receive a mysterious doorstop baby (with the same origin as the PC).
* Samus in the ''{{Metroid}}'' series had two daddies when the [[SufficientlyAdvancedAlien Chozo]] adopted her.
* In the beginning of ''VideoGame/GoldenSunDarkDawn'', previous heroes Isaac and Garet are have raised their respective sons Matthew and Tyrell together, and basically act as though they're a family. No moms are in sight-- Matthew's ([[spoiler:[[VictoriousChildhoodFriend Jenna]]]]) is indicated to be alive and well in a different city, but Tyrell's isn't even mentioned. As you go through the game it seems that there's no enmity between Matthew's parents, which leads some to conclude that [[ItsNotYouItsMyEnemies she's living away for her safety]].
* Blink and you'll miss it, but ''MagicalDiary'''s Jacob has ''at least'' two dads. Considering the setting, it's entirely possible that they're both his [[MisterSeahorse biological parents]] but that's not known so far.
* Diane from ''ShiningForce'' has three mothers.
* [[{{Meganekko}} Touko]] [[SourOutsideSadInside Fukawa]] from ''VisualNovel/DanganRonpa'' has one dad and two moms. When questioned about how that works, she refuses to elaborate. [[spoiler:It turns out to be a subversion, since School Mode reveals that what she really meant was that her parents got divorced and her father remarried.]]

[[folder:Webcomics]]
* In ''[[AbeKroenen Abe & Kroenen]]'', Abe [[http://abe-kroenen.livejournal.com/39360.html suggests that they might one day adopt and raise a child]]. Kroenen points out the many ways in which this would be a very bad idea.
** "It would be like ''Series/MyTwoDads'' but instead of 'Dads' it is 'horrible monsters'. And instead of 'Two' it is '''horrible'''."
* Winter from ''Webcomic/{{Girly}}'' has [[HomosexualReproduction two biological female parents]] as described but not explained [[http://girlyyy.com/go/18 here]].
* ''{{Terinu}}'' is... complicated. It's quite possible to argue that he has ''four'' "moms". His biological mother ([[spoiler:implied as dead in a flashback]]), Melika, the vulpine woman who raised him from ages three to nine and whom he has the closest relationship with, Mavra Chan the AxCrazy SpacePirate who raised him to her personal assassin from nine to fifteen, and finally Leeza, who not only has actual legal guardianship of him, she's also his [[spoiler:Master, since he's mentally imprinted to obey her every order.]] Currently only Leeza and Melika are likely to work together to raise him however.
* [[spoiler:Berlinetta]] of ''OtherPeoplesBusiness'' [[spoiler:has two daddies]].
* Pluto from ''StarGuys'' has two mothers. Apprently making Pluto was "a long and expensive process".
* ''Webcomic/TouhouNekokayou'' has Marisa and Alice's two daughters, Shanghai Margatroid and Carroll Kirisame (complete with ''Heather Has Two Mommies'' [[http://dizzy.pestermom.com/?p=thcomic83 reference]]). The former was "born" after Alice and Marisa finally figured out how to create an independent doll and applied it to Alice's Shanghai doll. [[spoiler: That "birth" takes place in CSA's ending.]] The latter, meanwhile, was the result of magical HomosexualReproduction, the exact details of which remain a [[NoodleIncident secret]].
* ''Webcomic/{{Drowtales}}'' brings us Kalki, Snadhya'rune's daughter. [[spoiler:Her father is Mel'arnach, the protagonist Ariel's biological mother, meaning that she ''literally'' [[HomosexualReproduction has two mommies]] thanks to Jaal'darya science]].
** There are several other examples in Drow society since EveryoneIsBi, and it's implied that Ariel's sister Lael'aelle was raised by her mother Quain'tana and the Ill'haress of the Sullisin'rune, Ash'waren.
* The [[SamusIsAGirl son]] of Kronar, [[HomosexualReproduction son of man]], in ''Webcomic/{{Oglaf}}''.
** Kronar's entire tribe has reportedly been "free of woman's taint" for generations. [[MisterSeahorse It's probably best not to think too hard about how]].
* While they did not consult each other on their pregnancies, the two leads from ''Moon Over June'' gave birth on the same day and are effectively raising their daughters together. [[MaternallyChallenged There is room to dispute whether this is a good thing]]
* The adopted children of Vaarsuvius and Inkyrius from ''Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick'' have two parents whose genders are both officially listed as "ambiguous". Does that count?
* Leanne from the FurryComic Rasvaar has two mothers: one her biological mother, and the other her 'mad' ([[DontExplainTheJoke a portmanteau of mum and dad]]).
* Secondary character [[http://www.precociouscomic.com/archive/comic/2012/04/26 Yvette]] in ''Webcomic/{{Precocious}}''. As explained by [[WordOfGod Chrispy]] Eva is her biological mother and Candy's brother was the sperm donor.
* As revealed in the final arc of ''AndShineHeavenNow'', [[spoiler: the boy that will grow up to be VampireHunterD, genetically, is the son of [[{{Hellsing}} Integra Hellsing and Seras Victoria]]. Note, however, D doesn't know this, and believes Alucard is his father. Oh, and by the way, [[HomosexualReproduction only Integra and Seras know how this happened]] and neither are telling.]]
* Referenced in ''Webcomic/QuestionableContent''. Marten's divorced dad remarries, this time to a man, to which Marten's response is [[http://questionablecontent.net/view.php?comic=2399 "Fuck yeah, two dads!"]]
** When he and his stepfather were debating how they should refer to each other, Marten decided to call Maurice, [[http://questionablecontent.net/view.php?comic=1522 "Dad Two: Dad Harder."]]
* ''WebComic/{{Shortpacked}}'' - Leslie and Robin - thanks to some Comic Book Science admittedly "inspired" by WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague and WesternAnimation/BatmanBeyond - are the biological parents of triplet girls.
* ''Webcomic/SplitScreen'': Jan and her sister were raised by her mother and her "other mother", Nancy.
* ''Webcomic/LatchkeyKingdom'' : Two women each claim the other stole their baby, and demand the king resolve the situation. The new king decides to marry them...to each other.
* Melissa from ''Webcomic/MagickChicks''. One of them uses a magic artifact to make everyone ''think'' she's male. [[spoiler: [[HomosexualReproduction They're her biological parents due to a fusion accident]].]]

They have three adopted children; two sons from [[MisterSeahorse mpreg]] fanfics, and a daughter who is a Triceratops. ItMakesSenseInContext. Many of the other adopted kids in the PPC would also fit.
* The mothersday PSA from ''Machinima/RedVsBlue'': "You only have one mother. Unless you are from a progressive home like Donut." How serious this can be taken is debatable due to the out-of-canon nature of the [=PSAs=].

[[folder:Western Animation]]
* ''WesternAnimation/AllGrownUp'' had an episode in which the kids were paired off in mock marriages and given an assignment to plan a wedding, start a home, and have children. The drawing for the pairs, however, was gender-neutral, pairing Chuckie with silent jock Fridge, and Angelica with long-time rival Susie. No one makes even one peep the entire episode about the suggestion that main characters were in simulated gay relationships.
* In ''WesternAnimation/AmericanDad'', gay couple Greg and Terry have a surrogate daughter, [[MeaningfulName Liberty (Libby) Belle]]. Stan's wife Francine was the surrogate mother, which Stan was very unhappy about, until the end of the episode when he realizes gay couples can have children and be just as happy, and gives her the name Liberty.
* ''WesternAnimation/DarkwingDuck'' has another non-homosexual two-daddy family.
* ''WesternAnimation/TimeSquad'' has inept, [[TestosteronePoisoning overly macho]] [[TimePolice time cop]] Buck Tuddrussell and his vitriolic, ambiguously CampGay robot buddy The Larry 3000 taking in an orphaned history buff who was living in an OrphanageOfFear. It didn't start out as a [[HasTwoMommies Has Two Daddies]] situation until Sigmund Freud analyzed Tuddrussell and Larry as a dysfunctional couple whose fighting will mentally and emotionally scar Otto for life on the third episode ("The Island of Dr. Freud"). From then on, the writers did everything they could to imply that the living arrangement could be construed as a "Has Two Daddies" situation.
* Race Bannon of ''JonnyQuest'' won Creator/CartoonNetwork's poll for "Best Cartoon Mom".
* You can't mention Benton and Race without mentioning Brock and Rusty of ''WesternAnimation/TheVentureBrothers'' (though neither of them come anywhere close to good parent material).
* JFK's adoptive parents in ''CloneHigh'' were a gay couple. He usually calls them "gay dads", but only in one episode, when he was doubting his sexuality, thanks to WholesomeCrossdresser Joan, he decides to join them in watching ''WillAndGrace''. He describes them as being like "''Series/MyTwoDads'', only gayer".
* In ''WesternAnimation/TransformersAnimated'': [[spoiler:Isaac Sumdac is captured by Megatron and his company is taken over by Porter C. Powell. Powell then kicks Sari out, so she ends up living with the Autobots, effectively having ''five robot daddies'' (though Prowl, Bumblebee, and Bulkhead are more like older brothers and Ratchet is more of a grandpa)]].
** Biologically speaking, [[MissingMom this is entirely possible also]]. Being that she's [[spoiler: at ''least'' half cybertronian, depending on who makes protoforms, and how many, she may have two biological daddies as well, counting Isaac]].
* One episode of ''WesternAnimation/PinkyAndTheBrain'' featured the eponymous duo raising a child created from their combined DNA thanks to a malfunction in Brain's cloning machine.
** Another episode had them in Kansas stumbling upon an alien spacecraft containing a [[Franchise/{{Superman}} baby with mysterious powers]]. Intrigued by the baby's abilities, Brain tried to raise him with Pinky; obviously it didn't work out. In the end, Pinky and the Brain put him back in the ship so that a childless couple could find him...
* An infamously controversial episode of the combination animated/live-action PBS series ''PostcardsFromBuster'' (an ''WesternAnimation/{{Arthur}}'' spinoff) had Buster visiting with a live-action real girl, who said she had "two moms." No more was said about her parents but the more conservative faction of ThePowersThatBe decided that was promoting the gay agenda, the episode was yanked, and used as an example of why all PBS funding should be immediately rescinded.
** Another explanation offered was that her parents were divorced and her birth mother was visiting her.
** And it wasn't like this was James Dobson raising a shit fit. No, the ''Secretary of Education'' was behind this clusterfuck, and even tried to get all funding pulled for ''Postcards From Buster''.
* ''Buddy G, My Two Moms and Me'' has, well, take a wild guess.
* In one episode of ''MakingFiends'', [[GenkiGirl Char]][[{{Pollyanna}} lotte]] adopts a bunch of baby ''explosive'' chicks with a very reluctant [[CreepyChild Vend]][[MadScientist etta]]. Charlotte [[LesYay refers to herself as the father, and Vendetta as the mother]].
-->'''Charlotte:''' Since you're already the mommy, I'll be the daddy! We can spend a~ll our time together, like one big happy family~!\\
'''Vendetta:''' WHAT!?
* On ''WesternAnimation/SpongeBobSquarePants'', [=SpongeBob=] and Patrick adopt a baby scallop. Patrick wants to be the mommy, but opts for daddy after [=SpongeBob=] points out he never wears a shirt (Patrick agrees that if he were the mom "this would be kinda shocking"). At the end, the scallop "flies" away, but Patrick suggests "[[HoYay Let's have another]]".
* ''WesternAnimation/TheOblongs'' has an UncannyValleyGirl who could pass as a [[StepfordSmiler Hill person]] (missing jaw and mono-boob aside) who has two normal-looking dads.
* Mojo Jojo, ArchEnemy of ''WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls'', created the [[ThePsychoRangers Rowdyruff Boys]] in an attempt to destroy said girls. Instead, it was the boys who got destroyed. Years later, the UltimateEvil, Him, resurrected the boys and improved upon them. This came to a head in the episode "Custody Battle", where Mojo discovers that the Rowdyruffs were brought back, tries to take back his place as their father (the day happens to be Father's Day, by the way), and he and Him end up trying to [[EvilerThanThou out-evil each other]]. The boys have enough of this and announce that they only care about destroying the Powerpuff Girls, causing Mojo and Him to [[HoYay embrace]] and exclaim, "I'm so proud of them!"
** Jojo in fact served as a father to the girls themselves as he kicked open the flask of chemical X that created them (and made Jojo intelligent). Later, his [[StableTimeLoop chronologically-altered attempt]] to erase the girls's existence failed, ensuring two elements of primacy.
* In ''WesternAnimation/{{Gargoyles}}'', Thailog, the evil clone of Goliath, has three fathers. His biological father, Goliath, his "maker", Dr. Sevarius, and the man who brought him up, Xanatos.
** Also keep in mind, gargoyles raise their young communally. A gargoyle that has been raised traditionally by gargoyles standards has many mothers and many fathers.
* One episode of ''TheRenAndStimpyShow'' had Ren participating in a social movement called "Fake Dad", basing on the idea of a man (dog?) with no offspring caring for an orphan for a weekend. Ren even says the line "Now that we're one happy family, let's spend some quality time together!" himself, putting Stimpy in the place of the mommy/second daddy.
** Also, the episode [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin "Stimpy's Pregnant"]] of ''Adult Party Cartoon''. The biological impossibilty of Ren impregnating Stimpy is never mentioned or discussed (the line "You said you'd use protection!" spoken by Ren could even indicate that in-universe, this is a regular occurence). Right before the delivery, Ren says "Any minute now, we'll be mommy and daddy". [[spoiler: It turns out Stimpy was not actually pregnant, just constipated. But neither of the "parents" find out about this - the excrement is treated like a child, though obviously, [[CanonDisContinuity there's no trace of it in later episodes]]).]]
* The episode of ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'' "Follow That Egg", where Stan and Kyle, and Wendy and Bebe, have to take care of an egg to prove Mrs. Garrison's point that gay couples can't raise children. At one point Wendy calls Kyle saying "I want to see my egg" to which he replies "it's not your egg anymore, Wendy".
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Detentionaire}}'' has another example where students are given the assignment to raise fake babies. Cam and Holger are paired together in the episode "Misadventures in Babysitting" and spend a couple days being two daddies to a robot baby. Holger is much happier about this than Cam.
* In ''WesternAnimation/AdventureTime'', Neptr (Never-Ending Pie-Throwing Robot) is assembled by [[TheHero Finn]], animated by a random bolt of lightning, and then energized to full functionality by [[IneffectualSympatheticVillain Ice King]], gaining some of his personality in the process by absorbing his [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar private]] [[StealthPun particles]]. He considers them both his fathers and calls Finn "Creator" and Ice King "Papi." Unfortunately, after the first episode both are [[DisappearedDad Deadbeat Dads]], forgetting about his existence for months at a time, and Neptr becomes something of a low-key WellDoneSonGuy.

* The concept of homosexual couples raising children is nothing new. Usually the child will either be adopted, or related to one of the parents through various means of artificial reproduction and/or surrogacy.
** Additionally, a bisexual (or latent gay) parent who produces children in a heterosexual relationship may later separate from their partner and form a same-sex relationship afterwards. If the child is still dependent at this time and custody is granted primarily to the bisexual parent, it is likely that the child will have two same-sex parents from this new relationship. In some countries the non-biological parent may also be permitted to co-adopt the child, giving both parents equal custody rights and legally designating both partners as the child's parents and legal guardians.
** Sometimes, they'll have it so that either the children will be biologically related to both parents. This is easy enough if one partner is cisgender and the other is a {{Transsexual}}, but if both are cis or trans, then they have to get creative with this.
* [[http://www.nytimes.com/2004/02/07/arts/love-that-dare-not-squeak-its-name.html Several]] [[http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/europe/8081829.stm examples]] of penguins.
** Taken to an extreme with seagulls; some populations only have lesbian couples, most of the female birds only mating once or twice in their entire lifetime with males in order to lay fertile eggs.
* Lionesses in a pride all raise cubs as an egalitarian community; every lioness treats each cub as a mother would.
* The famous female Crow Chief, [[MeaningfulName Woman Chief]] (born Pine Leaf of the Gros Ventre and abducted by a Crow raiding party as a child), got children with one of her four wives through surrogate fatherhood. According to their culture, the first one who sleeps with a woman who gets pregnant is officially the father. Using this, Woman Chief went through the preliminary motions and got a male volunteer to take over for the rest.
* Louise Jarvis, the subject of the BBC documentary My Mums Used To Be Men, [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin has two male-to-female transsexual mothers]].
* {{Gangsta Rap}}per FiftyCent had a lesbian mother who had a relationship with another woman.
** As did [[Series/TheAvengers Patrick Macnee]]. Which would have been in the 1920s.
* LGBT rights activist Zach Wahls, whose [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome awesome]] and [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming wonderful]] testimony to the Iowa State Legislature on same-sex marriage resulted in a ''very'' popular viral video.
* Villages and small communities with children probably fit in this category. Instead of it just being the parents job of providing and caring for a child, it is also the job of the rest of the village to help care for them.
* OlderThanRadio: Owing to complicated political maneuvering, the young [[DynastiesFromShangToQing Guangxu Emperor]] had "mother" Ci'an and "father" [[DragonLady Cixi]]. Both women had been wives of a previous emperor and were combining their Dowager Empress powers to rule together.
* Several openly gay celebrities have recently had children.
** NeilPatrickHarris and his husband David Burtka became the proud fathers of twins Harper Grace and Gideon Scott Burtka-Harris via a surrogate mother.
** RufusWainwright and his partner also had a girl, with Leonard Cohen's daughter Lorca serving as the surrogate[[note]] Best. Genes. EVER![[/note]].
** EltonJohn has also had a son with his husband via surrogate. This caused some controversy when a supermarket used the "family shield" to "[[MoralGuardians protect young shoppers]]" from seeing [[http://www.radaronline.com/exclusives/2011/01/magazine-cover-with-elton-johns-baby-too-controversial-arkansas Elton, his husband and their baby]] on a magazine cover. The supermarket eventually removed the shield after receiving complaints. And now they have a second son as well.
* [[http://www.aljazeera.com/news/europe/2013/06/2013628161558706499.html Three-person IVF treatment]]: The baby has another mother, the woman who is the source of his mitochondria. Useful for women who have serious risk of having a baby with defective mitochondria. (There's probably an [[Anime/GenesisOfAquarion Aquarion]] joke in the making here.)
