A Case of 2 Mothers and 1 Father

A Brazilian judge ordered a baby be registered as born with two mothers and a father, a first in the South American country.
The novel step had been requested both by the baby's biological father and mother, and the biological mother's female partner.
Judge Rafael Pagnon Cunha in the southern state of Rio Grande do Sul decided Thursday the mothers had a right to form a stable legal union, and the father did as well, the newspaper O Globo said. He therefore instructed that the baby's civil registry be adjusted to reflect "what life has reserved for her: a multi-part nest, full of love and affection."
Maria Berenice Dias, the head of the diversity committee of the lawyer's association in the state, who said the law should adapt to changes in society, applauded the move. O Globo said Fernanda Batagli Kropenski, 26, and Mariani Guedes Santiago, 27, had asked their friend Luis Guilherme Barbosa to help them have a child.
He agreed, but on condition that he be recognized as the father of the baby girl, who was born on August 27, the newspaper said.

In Saturday’s Scottish Premiership game, Jason Denayer (7) and Kris Commons (46) put Celtic comfortably ahead and then Aberdeen responded with David Goodwillie's goal (60) – but the former still prevailed and got the three points.
As for the EPL fixture on the same day, Liverpool lost 0-1 to Aston Villa, despite Brendan Rodgers fielding six of his summer signings! And when defeat stared at him, he could only lament his side's "lack of quality" in attack! The sad thing was that Liverpool enjoyed 75% possession against their opponents but managed just one shot on target – and even that, didn’t produce anything of consequence. Pathetic Reds!
