Want to have David Beckham’s babies? Thanks to a new sperm donor service, that might be possible.
The service, which sounds like a Saturday Night Live skit, but isn’t, will cater to people who want to have a baby with ‘a top-flight client list of celebrity donors from the worlds of sport, entertainment and finance,’ according to the Fame Daddy website.
Apparently ‘most girls fantasize about dating their favourite boyband star, or having a fling with a Hollywood actor.’
And now they (sort of) can.
The donors’ identities won’t be revealed, according to the Globe and Mail, but women will be able to choose from a list of accomplishments and characteristics.
For example, I discovered my ‘dream Fame Daddy,’ using their handy quiz, and my result was Bono, who (surprise!) is not in any way connected with the Fame Daddy service.
If I really did want to have a baby with Bono, who they helpfully describe is interested in ‘politics, religion and tinted glasses,’ all I would have to do is search for those characteristics.
Of course, I might not (read: wouldn’t) end up with Bono’s baby, but there’s a chance I could end up with a humanitarian baby, or an Irish baby.
According to the Globe and Mail, chief executive officer Dan Richards told the Telegraph that they have about 40 interested donors already’including retired athletes and multi-platinum musicians‘they just don’t have any real sperm samples yet.
What they lack in sperm samples though, they make up for in really cute photos of babies dressed up as rock stars and actors.
So if you’re not interested in ‘celebrity’ sperm, it’s worth checking out the website for adorable baby outfit ideas.
