“Wife Swap” featured a family headed by gay, black dads for the first time on its April 25 episode.

Terrell and Jarius Joseph, who hail from Atlanta, are married and the fathers to their two children, Aria and Ashton. Terrell switches places with Nina, the matriarch of a religious family with eight kids and her husband Matt.

When Terrell first meets the family, Matt and his kids are visibly uncomfortable that he is doing the swap and not a woman. Meanwhile, Nina struggles with Jarius who she finds to be too much of a neat freak. She also takes issue with Jarius not wanting her to touch his children.

“Wife Swap” airs on Thursdays at 9 p.m. on Paramount Network.
