Reality star, ex choose to raise twins apart

"My Fair Wedding" host David Tutera and his ex-husband are raising eyebrows by choosing to raise their twin children separately.

Tutera and his ex, Ryan Jurica, have been married for 10 years. But after a split earlier this year, the two have reached a temporary custody agreement to raise their 2-month-old twins, a boy named Cedric and a girl named Cielo, apart. The twins were carried by a surrogate mother.

Tutera, 47, appeared Friday on "The View" and came clean to the audience on his decision.

"We transferred two embryos into the surrogate: One was biologically mine, my daughter Cielo; one was biologically his, his son," he explained to the hosts on "The View."

"When we were going through the process of divorce, we decided to make sure that I had custody of my daughter and he had custody of his son," he said.

Tutera and Jurica wed in September 2003 in Vermont, where same-sex marriage is legal. Despite the split, Tutera told People magazine that "it is our responsibility to do the right thing for our children."
