My son Luke is almost two and a half and so far the potty training thing is going well.

Hi, Jen and welcome. Will Luke go potty if both of you are in the bathroom? If so, try making small transitions like stand further away from the potty than your DH, then, eventually, walk out while he is going. Maybe this will help ease his anxiety about going for daddy. Then, after he goes with only daddy in there, give him extra gummy bears for reward.
You may need to console daddy as well. If you are a SAHM, Luke is more accustomed to you and the way you do things. Let daddy be in charge of something else, like planning a weekend event. HTHs! Keep up posted on Lukes' progress.
