Bryan Richard Tyler Collins: Is a main character and spouse of David Sawyer. He is a father to Sawyer and his siblings


Season One


Bryan is first shown trying to create a video for his unborn child. The video starts out with him saying how desperately they want him/her. Later on he is seen telling his partner, David, that he wants to have a baby. At first, David doesn't know if they're ready because they wont be a normal family, but after they see a bunch of abnormal families in the park, Bryan explains to David that they are "The New Normal". Garry from Expanding Families comes over, but when he asks who will be the biological father they both say it will be them. After they then find a woman to be the egg donor, He and David then meet with Melissa. She threatens them through blackmail, saying that she'll drink alchohol and smoke if they don't give her a BMW. It is found out that she's not pregnant and that they found a new surrogate, Goldie, who Bryan says he's fond of. Bryan then tells David that he can be the biological father. In the end, he and David buy Goldie a lawyer suit.
