I am still working on trying to wrap my brains around this. Secretly, I’m hoping it is a hoax but a new London-based company, FameDaddy, promises to deliver “celebrity” babies to infertile couples struggling to conceive or women who want to have a baby with a celebrity.
FameDaddy’s homepage cites an Edinburg study which states that indicators for “successful” people are based on genes. Therefore, the company has assembled a list of premium and ideal donors. It is calling it “celebrity” donors but from a review of the website, it does not look like they really have frozen specimen from actual real life celebrities. I don’t think anyway.
Rather, those who sign up with the service will select the complexion, height, race and physical characteristics of their favorite celebrity and the service goes out and find a sperm donor who matches those qualities.
How much will it cost to get donor sperm of the highest caliber, according to FameDaddy’s site?
$24,000 US! The service will launch next year, but is currently gathering a list of clients and donors. Those receiving sperm donated from real celebrities and all others will not be entitled to compensation or child support to care for the child.
Hrmph! Isn’t the point of having a baby by a celebrity the limitless potential of being able to live off of outrageous child support payments? Is someone really that desperate that they’d fork up that amount of dough?! *shrug* Maybe.
Unbelievable! What are your thoughts?
