Håkan och hans man skrev 2008 kontrakt med en rysk advokat som hjälpte till att organisera äggdonatorer och surrogatmammor. Paret genomgick nio embryoöverföringar med flera olika äggdonatorer och surrogatmammor, och det tog fem år innan de äntligen blev pappor. De fem åren var fyllda av både hopp och förtvivlan efter varje misslyckat försök. Håkan är svensk men bor i Frankrike. Den populära boken Moscow Baby är en romantiserad berättelse om parets fantastiska resa till att bli föräldrar.
