Two bisexual women and their husband love parenting as threesome

A man and two women who live as a threesome have announced they are expecting a baby — and insist that “three parents are better than two.”

Adam Lyons was dubbed “the luckiest man alive” because he shares his life with two girlfriends, Brooke Shedd and Jane Shalakhova.

Lyons is already the father of Shedd’s son, Dante, now 2, but now the London-born dad is expecting a baby boy with Shalakhova.

The threesome — who share a super-king-size bed — believe the new baby, who is due in July, will benefit from their set-up.

Lyons, 36, from East London, said: “It’s so sweet that we all get to parent and raise the kids together.”

“We have talked about it at length and we all consider ourselves parents to the children. With the kids, our titles are officially ‘Dad,’ ‘Mom’ and ‘Mom.’”

“For us, three definitely works better than two.”

In fact, the threesome believes that their unusual arrangement could be the future of relationships and parenting.

Lyons, who runs his own business consulting company, Psychology Hacker, is also stepdad to Shedd’s son Oliver, 7, from a previous relationship.

He said: “For us, three people works because it enables us to manage daily life so much better.”

“So many of our friends are in ‘normal’ two-person couple relationships with kids, jobs and all the other typical responsibilities and I see them struggling to juggle their lives. It’s difficult with two people.”

“But with three parents, we always have the ability for one person to look after the kids and as a result, we never begrudge each other anything because we all have lots of time.”

“With three people, it’s logistically so much easier to handle all those things — we share out the responsibilities and it fits our sexual preferences too.”

“When Brooke, Jane and I first came out about our relationship, we had some criticism and certain people said we wouldn’t last.”

“But we’ve been going for five years now. What we have is not a fling or a phase, we’re a real family with healthy, happy kids.”

“Our son Oliver doesn’t even recognize what is ‘unusual’ about our family.”

“This should be the future of relationships, where people are able to enjoy love in any way they feel works. Three people and three parents makes so much sense to us.”

Mom-to-be Shalakhova, 27, says she never wanted children until she realized how much easier it was with three parents.

Shalakhova, who also works with Lyons in his business consulting company, explained: “When I had boyfriends before, I never wanted or cared about kids.”

“Growing up, I always thought that when you had a baby, you became a slave to your child. You see a lot of parents struggling.”

“But raising Dante with Adam and Brooke and watching him grow up with three parents around — I realize we could do it as a family. With three parents around, it’s so doable.”

“With three parents, we can still have a social life, make time for one another and share the parenting tasks so you don’t end up like the typical sleep-deprived mom.”

“With two partners, there’s so much help and I’ll never have to leave my kids with someone I don’t trust.”

Bisexual Shedd, 28, said: “I’m so excited for Jane’s pregnancy — I love talking to her bump. I’ve always wanted four sons so this is a dream come true.”

“I think our good parenting is one of the sexiest things about our relationship. It’s incredible to see Adam and Jane with the kids and how we share all the responsibilities.”
