This will be Adam Lyons’s second child with this relationship dynamic as he already has a son, Dante, with his girlfriend, Brooke Shedd. This time the pair will have a second child after their girlfriend, bisexual Jane Shalakhova, announced she was pregnant.
The threesome, who live in Austin, Texas, came to prominence two years ago when Adam, who is from East London moved to America and was dubbed the ‘Luckiest Man Alive’ for having two girlfriends.
Adam said: “It’s so sweet that we all get to parent and raise the kids together. We have talked about it at length and we all consider ourselves parents to the children. With the kids, our titles are officially ‘Dad’, ‘Mum’ and ‘Mum’. For us, three definitely works better than two.”
He says their arrangement is better from the normal couple relationship because he sees his mates, struggling to juggle a work and family balance.
“But with three parents, we always have the ability for one person to look after the kids,” he said. “As a result, we never begrudge each other anything because we all have lots of time.”
Jane approves and has explained: “Growing up, I always thought that when you had a baby, you became a slave to your child. You see a lot of parents struggling.”
She says the pregnancy was definitely planned and they wanted to expand their family as the timing ‘felt right’.
Adam, Brooke and Jane were told they wouldn’t last but despite those predictions, they’ve been happily together for five years.
Brooke also has a seven-year-old boy, Oliver, from a previous relationship. She hopes that the family can eventually welcome a fourth child. The 28-year-old is also setting her sights on a wedding some day, but polygamy is illegal in Texas. Brooke says their good parenting is the ‘sexiest thing about their relationship’.
The trio sleep in a super-king sized bed and they own two properties on a large piece of land. One of the homes is used as an office while the other is for living and home.
Brooke is responsible for educating the kids and said: “We wanted to give our children a chance to really succeed and get lots of attention. Oliver can read, write and understand things beyond a normal school academic curriculum.”
While Brooke takes care of the kids, Jane and Adam work in his business consulting company. Jane says it’s great to be able to meet clients at their office and then come home for lunch to see the kids and Brooke.
Looks like they’ve got it all figured out!
