Bros actor Luke MacFarlane and his partner—former Team USA Olympic alpine skier Hig Roberts—brought home their new baby girl Tess on Fathers' Day this year.
On an Instagram post they shared:
"Tess Eleanor Macfarlane—Born June 4th 2023."
"We started life with some hectic days and received world class care."
"On Father’s Day we got to take her home."
"Her Dads can’t wait to introduce her to all the remarkable people and the beautiful world we live in."
MacFarlane rose to prominence in his role on the TV show Brothers and Sisters, before switching to starring in Hallmark movies.
Recently he starred opposite Billy Eichner—who offered his congratulations on Tess' birth—in the gay rom-com Bros. Roberts was an Alpine skier who won national events in 2017 and 2018 before retiring in 2020.

Many others came to celebrate how blessed little Tess was to have two loving parents.
Macfarlane came out in 2008 and Roberts in 2020.
