YouTube stars Shane Dawson and Ryland Adams are now officially dads after welcoming twin boys via surrogate.

Shane, 35, and Ryland, 32, announced the start of their surrogacy journey back in March, confirming that they were expecting two sons.

They also shared at the time that they had chosen the two most ‘optimal’ embryos, one with Shane’s sperm and another with Ryland’s.

The couple – who married in January this year – proceeded to document parts of their journey to fatherhood on social media, with the announcement of their sons’ arrivals landing on Sunday (December 10).

Taking to Instagram, the newly doting dads revealed that Jet Parker Adams Yaw and Max Chandler Adams Yaw were born on December 7.

In a joint post to their combined following of 9.6million, they shared photos of the newborns from the hospital.

One snap captured Shane and Ryland cuddling their babies, who looked adorable in knitted hats, while others showed them being fed and sleeping.

The final pic showed the beaming influencers carrying the little ones out in car seats.

In their caption, Shane and Ryland wrote: ‘There’s no words to express how it feels to be the fathers of these two beautiful boys.

‘The best day of our entire lives and nothing else will ever compare.’

Shane and Ryland also confirmed that they ‘probably won’t be showing much’ of their babies in the future.

‘But because many of you have been on the journey with us we felt it was right to show the destination,’ they added.

‘We are so unbelievably grateful. Thank you for the love and support during this entire process. We can’t wait for all the moments that are on the way. Cherishing every single one.’

In the comments, their fellow influencers and viewers were keen to congratulate them.

Kendall Rae penned: ‘😭😭😭 enjoy all the newborn cuddles!!!’

‘They are perfect!’, commented CelinaSpookyBoo.

Shane and Ryland previously shared that they plan to keep in contact with the surrogate who carried their babies, having filmed much of the process but kept the surrogate’s name offline.

The YouTubers previously uploaded footage of their embryo transfer day, which was also the first time they met their surrogate.

While their surrogate wasn’t caught on camera, Shane and Ryland did share footage of their two embryos at the fertility clinic. 

Shane – who watched the implantation take place via Facetime as only two people were allowed in the room – described it as ‘the best moment of my life’ as he became tearful.

He and Ryland also said they had a ‘perfect’ connection to their surrogate and branded her ‘the perfect fit for us.’

Shane has been uploading YouTube videos since he was 19 in 2008 and has clocked billions of views in his time, most notably for his conspiracy theory vids.

However, in recent years, his career has become shrouded with controversy.

The once-beloved face of YouTube faced major backlash in June 2020 when the internet turned on him as old clips of him in Blackface and making offensive jokes resurfaced.

He also made sexual comments about minors, such as Willow Smith (who was 11 at the time), and implied having sex with his cat.

After the clips circulated, Shane apologised and disappeared from the internet for a long time.

Having believed his career was ‘over’, Shane’s comeback was met with a mixed response.
