"A Vancouver baby has just become the first child in British Columbia with three parents listed on a birth certificate.
Three-month-old Della Wolf Kangro Wiley Richards is the daughter of lesbian parents and their male friend.

Della’s family is the first to go through the process, and they finalized the birth certificate registration last week.
