“2016 was memorable for many reasons, for me it as the year my heart doubled in size. First, when my son Caleb was born. And second, a few days ago, when I got engaged to my soulmate,” he wrote.
Berlanti’s son Caleb was born in February, with the help of a surrogate.

It is with much pride and love that I introduce to the world my son, Caleb Gene Berlanti. Born February 18, 2016. There is nothing I've wanted more, or waited for longer, than to be a father. Achieving this dream would not have been possible without the love and support of my wonderful family and surrogate, incredible boyfriend, amazing friends and co-workers that encouraged me and helped me on this remarkable journey. Check back in approximately 25-30 years for the tell-all about how I screwed it all up, until then apologies for the over posting of baby photos. My heart is full forever.
“Though I dreamed of both those things happening, I’m not sure I truly believed they were possible,” Berlanti continued. “Thanks to the friends and family who helped me find my way to this moment in my blessed life. a happy and healthy 2017 to all.”
He recently shared a video of himself teaching Caleb how to kick.
