Many women dream of fathering a child with their adored celebrities; whether it is your favorite rock star, your Hollywood hero or your most admired athlete. Well now there is a sperm donor service that offers you that very opportunity.
London-based Fame Daddy, which we believe to be the world’s first celebrity fathering service, claims to have the prize swimmers of 40 A-list celebrities in their sperm banks. They say they’ve got an Oscar-winning actor, a Formula 1 driver, a former football player, a genius and of course a rock star…
For just £15,000/$24,000 you can have yourself a baby with celebrity genes. There is a catch of course, (as you have probably guessed there would be) the identity of the donor is never revealed. The way it works is the client is given a 12-question form where they are asked about their baby’s ideal complexion, height, character and lifestyle choices. They are also asked what field they’d like the father to be from, whether it is a star sportsman, a talented musician or a revered actor.
The staff at the clinic then uses this information to determine which donor is best suited to this particular client. Fame Daddy state that all the fathers have signed exclusive donor deals on the grounds of guaranteed anonymity and they have also signed a legal waiver of access rights to the child.
Dan Richards, CEO of Fame Daddy said:
“Our vision is to help women give their children the very best chance in life. To be able to harvest potential from the global gene pool, rather than from the more limited selection of the men she comes into direct contact with, is a major evolutionary leap for women.”
Apparently the sperm donations from these talented celebs are not available anywhere else in the world and they have all had thorough medical screening so as to inform parents about any hereditary conditions.
Sounds great for those who are desperate for their kids to have the X-Factor, but there are a couple of factors that I find a little disturbing. So let’s say you opt to have the athlete genes, but your kid grows up and doesn’t really fancy being a sports star – is that mom going to be shoving it down his/her throat the whole time about their expensive genes etc.
The other thing that bothers me is the fact that that child will never be able to find out who their father is and will more than likely spend far too much time browsing through celeb magazines trying to figure out which A-lister they resemble the most. But then I suppose that’s a generic problem with sperm donation. If you are going to have a baby using sperm donation and the father is anonymous anyway, then I guess it might as well be from the celeb gene pool.
