OutFront Update: "Surrogate" custody battle continues in Texas

We've told you about this story before, an ugly custody battle in Texas that could redefine motherhood: Cindy Close and her friend, Marvin McMurrey, agreed to have a child together using his sperm and donated eggs.

Close became pregnant with twins through in vitro fertilization. But after the twins were born in July, Close says McMurrey revealed he was gay, told her she was just a surrogate and demanded custody of the children.

But now a judge in Houston has ruled that Cindy Close is indeed the mother of the twins, not just a surrogate. OutFront tonight is CNN's David Mattingly, who's been following this case.
