JC Penney has launched a new Father’s Day ad that features a family with two gay dads.
The print ad shows a real-life couple laughing with their two little kids.
“I think it’s great. It pretty much mirrors our life,” laughs John Katsaros, of Lakewood.
Katsaros and his partner Rob said they are two proud dads.
“We have a little girl — 5 years old — and my partner is her biological daddy,” said Katsaros.
It’s a family unit not often featured in mainstream media until now.
