Just in time for Father’s Day: Greg Rikaart is a dad!

The Young and the Restless star and husband Robert Sudduth welcomed their first child, son Montgomery Argo Rikaart-Sudduth at 5:01 p.m. on Sunday, June 12, he announced Monday on Instagram.

The couple’s baby boy was born via surrogate in Roseville, California.

“We fight hate, fear, bigotry, homophobia and injustice in the world with love, intellect and enlightenment,” Rikaart, 39, wrote next to a black-and-white photo of his new family. “In the truest and most pure definitions of the latter words, it is with full hearts that Rob and I take great pride in introducing our son, Montgomery Argo Rikaart-Sudduth.”

Rikaart adds, “He is light and love and magic. Monte, Rob, myself and Marcela, our trooper of a surrogate, are all doing fantastic.”

I don’t agree with homosexuality. I am not a hater, in fear, bigoted or a homophobe. LBGT folks need to quit accusing those who share my beliefs of such things. They are untrue and their accusing us doesn’t help their cause.

Ann, more often than not it isn’t people who share your beliefs that are accused of those things, rather it’s the people who present those thoughts in a hateful manner. For example, saying something like “I don’t agree with homosexuality” will offend some people, but is simply an opinion/belief of yours, but when some people say things like “these deviant homos should go to hell” their views do become perceived as hate, and with good reason.

It’s usually all in the wording.

Congratulations on your beautiful son! Everyone deserves 2 loving parents! I wish people could see past sexual orientation….I never have to explain myself because I have a husband and 2 children, why should anyone else. Love each other! Stop the Hate!

I forgot to add this and it wouldn’t let me edit my comment. I have a beloved uncle who is gay. People can personally disagree with someone’s lifestyle while still loving the person.
