World's only 'married' lesbian trio expecting first baby together

The world's only 'married' lesbian threesome are expecting their first child together.

Doll, Kitten and Brynn Young, from Massachusetts, were joined together in a marriage-style ceremony last August and are expecting a daughter in July.

Kitten, 27, is pregnant after having IVF treatment using an anonymous sperm donor, and the trio eventually plan to have three children - one for each of them.

Kitten will carry all the children - possibly using her wives' eggs and donated sperm - but they are open to other options, such as adoption.

Doll, Kitten and Brynn married in a ceremony in August 2013 after getting together in 2009 through a website used by people who champion polygamous relationships.

The so-called 'throuple' worked with a specialist family lawyer who drew up the paperwork and drafted the ceremony so that all three of them were obligated and bound to each other.

The threesome say their relationship is like that of any normal couple: having breakfast with one another, watching TV after work and sharing a bed together.

Doll, 30, told the Mail: "The only difference is that communication is a lot more difficult for us than others. There are three people so our relationship takes detailed scheduling - everything we do goes on the calendar!

"Whilst communication is tricky, household chores are a lot easier with three people! You can slack off on your errands and another person can pick them up."

It was only three months after their wedding day that Kitten fell pregnant, after IVF treatment using a sperm donor. They hope to conceive using the same method with all of their future pregnancies.

Kitten said: "The three of us have always wanted kids. Doll, Brynn and I are committed to each other and we wanted to grow our family.

"We decided that I would be the one to carry the babies because I am more than happy to become a full-time mum. When our daughter arrives in July, I'll be the one changing the nappies and doing the feeds!"

The women plan on homeschooling their children to prevent them getting bullied by peers for having an unconventional family.

Doll said: "Traditional school's tough enough for a normal kid and I don't want my child to be picked on because they're raised differently. I can't stomach the idea of putting them in the crossfire like that."

Brynn, 34, said: "Through homeschooling, I think we can also educate our kids to have the same strength that Doll, Kitten and I have.

"The three of us have been brave enough to stand tall and go against what society calls normal. I hope our child will feel free to do the same thing if they wish."

She added: "Doll, Kitten and I may not be the norm but we are perfectly normal. We are simply people trying to live the life that we feel is best for us and we deserve the rights afforded to others."
