Popular children's cartoon "Peppa Pig" now features a same-sex couple.

"One mommy is a doctor and one mommy cooks spaghetti. I love spaghetti," the child says as she is sketching a picture of her family.

This is the first time that a same-sex couple has been featured on the show's 18-year run.

It follows a petition that called for a gay couple to be included in the British children's show that garnered more than 23,000 signatures.

"Peppa Pig" is a well-known children's show across the world, and is watched by more than 180 countries.
