Santa will be in a gay, interracial relationship in a new picture book.

Writer Daniel Kibblesmith said he created the book, a parody in the vein of infamous pre-bedtime read Go the F**k to Sleep, for his children.

Kibblesmith tweeted in December that he and his wife, author Jennifer Ashley Wright, “have decided our future child will only know about Black Santa.

“If they see a white one we’ll say ‘That’s his husband,’” he added.

And yesterday, Kibblesmith, who also writes for The Late Show with Stephen Colbert in the US, followed this up with confirmation that a book with this narrative would come out for the holidays.

“I can’t believe it, but this is officially happening,” he wrote, adding that he was “really excited”.
