The Wine O'clock Show - The one with Jayson Brunsdon and Aaron Brunsdon
This weeks episode of The Wine O'Clock Show brings you a heartwarming and inspiring personal story about the strength of family, the universal love of parents, and an uplifting reminder to never lose sight of your dreams.
When Aaron met Jayson Brunsdon, one of Australia’s leading fashion figures, they both dreamt of becoming fathers one day – a difficult and risky prospect few same-sex couples at the time dare.
Together they built the Jayson Brunsdon brand from nothing into one of the most eponymous labels in Australia, worn by Crown Princess Mary of Denmark, Naomi Watts Lovers, Jennifer Hawkins and our host Tam Wrigley. Jayson quickly rose to fame and the label traverses the highs and lows of the fashion industry. They lose everything, and rebuild it all again all while Jayson fought for his life and survives cancer.
In 2014, a story on 60 Minutes Australia inspired them to take the plunge into parenthood via surrogacy – a controversial act in Australia, but a possibility in Thailand. What follows is a challenging journey filled with hope, chaos and determination – reaching its peak when halfway through their pregnancy Thailand outlaws surrogacy, and Aaron and Jayson face the shattering prospect that they might not be able to bring their beautiful baby boy home.
So much to get through in such a short amount of time. So, Kick off those shoes, grab yourself a wine, sit back, relax and watch this week show.
