The journalist also took the opportunity to talk about the surrogate mother who helped make his dream come true.
''Most of all, I am grateful to a remarkable surrogate who carried Wyatt, and watched over him lovingly, and tenderly, and gave birth to him. It is an extraordinary blessing - what she, and all surrogates give to families who can't have children." he added.
