Massimiliano Gerina, who donated his sperm to a lesbian couple he was friends with nearly three years ago, displays his tattoo honoring his daughter, Ema, Friday, Feb. 8, 2013, in Miami. He was ecstatic about becoming a father, a dream the gay hairdresser had all but given up on. But shortly before the little girl was born, the mothers asked Gerina to sign legal documents saying he had no rights to the baby and was only a sperm donor. The three spent the next two years fighting over the arrangement until a judge last month ruled in a private adoption that Gerina and the two women are the legal parents of the now 2-year-old girl.
