A new ad from Allstate insurance features two gay dads sharing their experience of becoming parents for the first time this past year.
Posting on YouTube, Allstate describes the video thus: “Danny and Andrew had a lot of memorable firsts in 2015. See what’s made the year so special for their family.”
Talking about their unexpected journey to becoming first-time parents in 2015, Danny and Andrew say, “A year ago, we didn’t even know we were going to be parents…The second we held her I knew that she was ours…Our little girl is us.”
“Within our lifetime, we have gotten married and had a child. Twenty years ago that wouldn’t have happened. So my hope is that she does not face the same obstacles that we did. But I’m not wishing her no obstacles. Just ones that will make her equally as strong. But it’s the first times, the moments we spent as family that have been the best over the last year.”
The ad closes with a title card that reads, “Here’s to firsts. Allstate is here to help protect your firsts and every moment in between.”
