A gay Singaporean man has won a landmark court case which will allow him to adopt a child he fathered through a surrogate.
The man, 46, and his long-term partner carried out the process in the US at a cost of $200,000 (£159,000), as surrogacy is illegal in Singapore.
He tried to legally adopt the child but the bid was rejected last year, leaving him with no legal parental rights.
Same-sex marriages are not recognised in Singapore and gay sex is illegal.
The four-year-old child is considered illegitimate in the eyes of the law as the surrogate mother and biological father are not married.
The mother - who waived all her rights under the surrogacy deal - is also foreign, making the child ineligible to automatically qualify for Singaporean citizenship. The egg donor has never been identified.
