Joanne Engel's and her lover Ellen Haller's son, Danny once remarked on the roles of his own nine grandparents, since Ellen and Joanne co-parent with two gay men, and one of the grandparent couples had split up and re-married. They also commented on trying to control the amount of gifts and relationships since there were so many grandparents (hard to do).
