Writer Samuel Leighton-Dore, 25, made headlines this week when he announced plans to have a baby with his sister.
Samuel is in a gay relationship with photographer and designer Bradley Tennant, but his sister Bronte has agreed to donate her eggs so that the couple can have the family they’ve always wanted.
“It’s not too strange when you break it down,” he said, according to Right Wing News. “We’ll be using IVF. It’ll be my sister’s egg and my partner’s sperm with a third-party surrogate, preferably someone who already has a family of their own.”
“It’s the only way my partner and I can both have a biological connection to our future children.” Samuel added. “It might sound vain to some people, but I think the desire to have a child with the person you love is pretty intrinsic and natural.”
Samuel went on to say that the baby is still “a few years away” as the process is all very expensive.
“It’s definitely something you have to think about and plan ahead of time,” he said.
