Oz 'Rip 'n' Roll' sex ad stars to become 9-yr-old's foster parents

August 12, 2011 - Brisbane

The couple, who featured in the controversial 'Rip and Roll' sex advertisements of Queensland Association of Health Communities, have decided to be foster parents to a nine-year-old boy.

Michael O'Brien, 25, and Anthony Gillespie, 28, unable to adopt a child in Queensland, made the choice to foster a child through Life Without Barriers.

"He is a beautiful, bubbly nine-year-old boy, he has been in care for a while," the Brisbane Times quoted O'Brien as saying.

"He is going to be with us until he comes of age," he added.

O'Brien also revealed that the couple was hoping to get married in the presence of their new son.

The couple first met their child two months ago through a foster care agency but have been going through the process to become foster parents since November last year.
