Co-dads: This adorable photo shows the sweet side of blended families

Most divorced couples struggle to manage parenting roles.

But not all couples have a hard time - in fact, there are some who blend together so seamlessly that you can't believe it.

Like Dylan Lenox from Texas.

He took to social media to post a series of gorgeous photos of himself, another man called David Lewis and a little girl called Willow.

Dylan explained that they were not a same-sex couple but that he is marrying David's ex-wife Sarah, and that Willow is David and Sarah's daughter. 

In essence, the pair are the five-year-old's Dad and soon-to-be stepdad.

Dylan wrote, ''Our daughter Willow. You may never know how your love has changed us all. The guy to the left is myself (Daddy, Daddy Dylan or Bonus Dad), in the middle is of course our Princess Willow and the guy to the right is David (Daddy, Daddy David or biological Dad). No we are not a same sex couple, but we do share a daughter. David is Sarah’s ex husband and I am the Fiancé. We have moulded ourselves into one unique family, of only for the sake of our children to know the power of love.''

Pass us the tissues.

He continued, ''Not only did I gain a daughter, I gained a brother and a best friend. Thank you Sarah for letting this all happen! When we care more about our children (on both sides of the party) than the way society has taught us to be towards (ex's/baby mommas/daddy's) then walls will fall, life will be free of hatred and remorse, and our children will conquer the foolish "norms" that media has shoved in our faces. He stays at our home when he visits, because family is always welcome.''

He added, ''He is not an outsider, he is and will always be apart of my life for the simple fact that we share the same daughter! Of course not a single moment would be like this without Sarah (mommy) and her kind and generous heart! Willow Grace you are loved by so many people in this world and your Daddies love you!''

This amazing story pulled on the heartstrings of so many people. 

One wrote, ''This makes my heart so happy! Beautiful story of putting difference aside and focusing on what matters!''

While another said, ''Wow! This is the way it should be. Wish more situations could be like this!''

While so many TV shows and movies show us the sad side of families how have been affected by divorce, this story shows that a happy outcome is also possible.
