We made a home movie called Two: The Story of Roman and Nyro. Well, it's more like a documentary. But it's made up of 300 hours of home movies, which we gave to our director Heather Winters. And she took 2 years to weave the story together. So we are very excited because we've been at film festivals, and we've been warmly received. We're hoping the film comes out theatrically very soon. We made our documentary Two: The Story of Roman and Nyro to be an inspiration to the world and to other gay families that would want to start their own families. And we show the process over a very long period of time. So we show them going from embryos to wise guys who narrate the film. And so that is a very substantial segment of life. And proves that we can do it and it can work and the outcome is fantastic.

Desmond Child

Songwriter & Producer

For nearly 4 decades, songwriter/producer Desmond Child has reigned as one of music’s most successful creative forces.  His list of accolades includes Grammy awards, 70 Top 50 singles, and songs that have sold over 300 million albums worldwide.  Child’s career has been highlighted by a stunning array of diversity from Bon Jovi and Aerosmith to Ricky Martin, Alice Cooper, KISS and Katy Perry.   Despite having worked for nearly 40 years as a writer, producer, and artist, Child remains energized and enthusiastic.  TWO: The Story of Roman and Nyro documents the 12-year journey of Desmond and his lifelong partner of 24 years, Curtis Shaw, and the extraordinary way they met and connected with Angela Whittaker, the woman who would carry their twin sons, Roman and Nyro, into the world.  From preconception through the boy’s first 10 years, TWO is the personal and powerful story of these unique individuals whose lives become inextricably woven together in magical and unexpected ways.  TWO is a testament to the universal power and ultimate triumph of love – that it is love that makes a family, affirming that modern families may be modern in their making, but timelessly human at their core.
