Tutera, the host of WE tv's My Fair Wedding with David Tutera,
and Jurica entered a Vermont civil union in 2003, which was later
converted into a marriage after the legalization of gay marriage in
the state, and separated on New Years Day 2013. Six months later,
Cielo and Cedric were born via a surrogate.
Biologically, Tutera, who lives in California, is Cielo's dad,
while Jurica, who lives in Connecticut, is Cedric's dad.
Appearing on ABC's The View, Tutera said that he had hoped
that a family would help his rocky marriage.
“I think anyone in my situation would think that, I did. You
know, it was a three year process. The relationship was going poorly
for six years,” Tutera said. “We went through it in hopes, at
least I can speak for myself, in hopes that the relationship would
get better and having a family would make it better.” (The video
