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.

Håkan and his husband signed a contract with a Russian lawyer in 2008 who helped organise egg donors and surrogate mothers.

Those five years were filled with both hope and despair after each failed attempt. Håkan is Swedish but living in France. The popular book Moscow Baby is a fictionalised account of their incredible journey to parenthood.
