You’ll probably never actually get to the chance to spend a night with a film star or pro athlete, but a new fertility service is offering the opportunity make a baby with one.
It sounds like it could be a hoax designed to prank die-hard celebrity hounds, but Fame Daddy, which claims it expects to launch next year, promises to match hopeful mothers with sperm donated by “a top class portfolio of donors from across the celebrity world,” according to the Fame Daddy website. It encourages women to seek a private consultation, “and you could soon be enjoying the ultimate intimate VIP access.”
According to the Telegraph, the sperm donors’ identities will not be revealed, but the service will allow women to choose from various areas of achievement and physical attributes. However, while the website’s list of “sample profiles” include an Oscar-winning actor, an Olympic gold medalist and a particle physicist, it remains to be seen whether clients will actually receive genetic material from donors of the highest calibre.
Chief executive Dan Richards told the Telegraph that the clinic doesn’t actually have any real sperm samples yet, and the profiles advertised online are merely examples of the types of donors the company “intends to attract.” Richards did say, however, that a list of about 40 interested donors in its registry includes retired English cricket players and a multi-platinum recording artist.
“Whether it is talent on the stage or pitch, having a world-beating voice, or just being very beautiful, Fame Daddy will have the perfect celebrity surrogate daddy,” he told the newspaper.
Using the service will cost £15,000 ($24,000) or more. But it sounds as though it could an expensive gamble: What if the anonymous “television star” donor you pick turns out not to be MadMen’s hunky Jon Hamm as you’d hoped, but, say, Jersey Shore’s chiselled mess Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino? Maybe it’s best you don’t get a chance to procreate with them after all.
