Exclusive: Neighbours’ first gay marriage makes history — and they’ll have kids soon

Neighbours is airing its first ever gay wedding, after 33 years on our screens.

Aaron Brennan and David Tanaka will tie the knot on the Australian soap in an episode airing in the UK on Monday, with the help of celebrity officiant Magda Szubanski of Australian comedy Kath & Kim, who has been a prominent activist in the fight towards marriage equality.

And it looks like the newlyweds will soon be adding children to their new family.

Aaron and David’s relationship has already broken numerous barriers, including an adorably messy proposal in May when the two men planned to pop the question on the same day.

And according to executive producer Jason Herbison, viewers should expect to see the newlyweds as dads, and soon.

When asked by PinkNews if Aaron and David — or #Daaron, as they’re known to fans — would be having kids, he said: “Definitely.”

“We’d love to explore that chapter with them, and we definitely want to explore it in the near future,” said Herbison.

“There are a few different ways we can go, and yes, I’d definitely say watch this space.”

Takaya Honda, who plays David on the show, was similarly enthusiastic, telling PinkNews: “I’d love there to be the pitter-patter of tiny feet for #Daaron.”

“But we’re just getting married now, so we’ve got to take it one step at a time,” he added, laughing.

“But no, I’d love to show that part of the community as well – to take #Daaron and make it into #DaaronFamily.
