'My best friend is now mum of my child'

Two best friends make legal history in Canada by becoming the first to co-parent.

Natasha Bakht and Lynda Collins are best friends who fought a two-year-long legal battle to be officially recognised as co-parents to Natasha's disabled son, Elaan.

It's the first time in Canadian history that two people who have never been in a romantic relationship have been legally recognised as parents.

Video Journalist: Jan Bruck.
