Rachel Berry's family history has been hard to keep track of on Glee — but in an upcoming epsiode we'll finally be meeting her two dads!
Let us attempt to recap Rachel's family tree.
In the pilot episode of Glee we learned that Rachel (Lea Michele) had two dads. Hiram and Leroy Berry are an interacial same sex-couple who used a surrogate to conceive Rachel. As Rachel explained, her dads mixed their sperm together with a turkey baster and Rachel didn't know who her biological father was.
However, in a tongue-and-cheek manner, Lea showed a picture of her dads posted in her locker revealing Hiram is white and Liam is black leading fans to believe Hiram is most likely her father.
Eventually, Rachel discovers that her biological mother is Shelby Corcoran (Idina Menzel), the coach of Vocal Adrenaline. Rachel's father paid her to be their surrogate and had a contract not to contact Rachel.
So, Gleek's have met Rachel's mom on the show but have yet to see her two dads — until now!
Lea Tweeted a photo with her two dads revealing Jeff Goldblum and Brian Stokes Mitchell as her fathers.
"So excited that we're finally going to get to meet Rachel's dads!!!" she wrote. "So anxious to get to work with both of them!!
"Brian Stokes and I have been friends for ages!!!" she added. "We worked together on Broadway! So happy he's going to be on the show!!!"
Rachel revealed a photo of her fathers in the pilot episode and it was not of Jeff and Brian. But fans will just have to overlook that continuity flaw!
Are you excited to see Jeff and Brian on the show?
