A new advert from Samsung includes a pregnant biracial lesbian couple.

The minute-long video, called “Samsung Galaxy: The Future,” shows two women cuddling in bed while one shows the other a live ultrasound of their baby on a phone.

Watch the Samsung advert with a pregnant lesbian couple:

The partners smile at each other as they look at the screen, which shows that the foetus is 6.51cm after 16 weeks of pregnancy.
