A Good Luck Charlie same-sex couple aired on the Disney Channel Sunday night. Us Weekly reports Jan. 28 Taylor's two mothers -- Susan and Cheryl -- were introduced on the show when they dropped her off for a playdate with Charlie.

The decision was made in 2013 by the network to air the same-sex episode on the children's show.

Desi Lydic, who portrays Susan on the series, tweeted this about the Good Luck Charlie same-sex episode:

"I'm so proud to be part of that episode! Go Disney! #equality."

Good Luck Charlie has been on the air since 2010. Four seasons later the show took a chance on a major issue facing the nation. A Disney Channel spokesperson told TV Guide that the show is "developed to be relevant to kids and families around the world and to reflect themes of diversity and inclusiveness."

Disney also consulted with child development experts and community advisers before executing their decision.

One Million Moms is strongly opposed to the Good Luck Charlie same-sex episode and released a statement.

They said:

"Disney has decided to be politically correct instead of providing family-friendly programming. Disney should stick to entertaining, not pushing an agenda. Conservative families need to urge Disney to avoid controversial topics that children are far too young to comprehend. This is the last place a parent would expect their children to be confronted with topics that are too difficult for them to understand. Mature issues of this nature are being introduced too early and too soon, and it is extremely unnecessary."

According to the report, the Susan and Cheryl characters will not appear again on the show.
