Everyone is swooning over Kordale and Kaleb, the black gay fathers whose family photos are making the rounds on the Web. Their Instagram page is littered with some of the cutest family pics on the damn Internet.

Also, they're a ridiculously good looking couple.

And, they're so in love.

Huffington Post and Queerty.com reported that the pair received backlash for declaring themselves proud gay dads. Kordale and Kaleb sent this response to HuffPost Gay Voices:

"In regard to the negative, people fail to realize that we are people too with kids who love us. We do what is necessary for them to succeed in this ever-changing world but it's sad that we're discriminated against because of our sexuality and/or what we do behind closed doors -- which is no one's business. In the same breath, we take all of what's been said in stride. The picture was put out on social media for an opinion so we can't be mad when people give just that: an opinion. People tend to think that gay people cannot raise their children to be heterosexuals. Instead, they have derogatory thoughts of us 'tainting' our children or 'confusing them' with what society sees deems as wrong an unmanly because we're gay. But this is all comical because people forget where a lot of gays come from: a heterosexual household.

"This is another prime example of where we are as a nation in 2014 -- continuous discrimination against gays. Being gay is the new normal for a lot of people and judgement isn't needed, just equality! We may be gay but this does not mean we are incapable of what a heterosexual couple is capable of! Us gays are just as educated and passionate about what we do and how we do it!"

They're perfect. Instagram isn't enough. Can we get them a reality show? I'd watch it every week for the rest of my life.
