I’m trying to think when Dads went out of style:
Iron Chef Cat Cora is cookin’ up a baby — and so is her wife Jennifer! Both expecting boys, Jennifer, 37, will deliver in April, while Cat, 41, is due in July. The couple’s new sons are from the same sperm donor as their older boys, Caje, 23 months and Zoran, 5. Zoran and the baby Cat is carrying are from Jennifer’s eggs, while Caje is from Cat’s. In Jennifer’s current pregnancy, both women’s embryos were transferred, so the biological mother is unknown. The couple do not to plan to conduct DNA testing to determine this. “[Jennifer] carried my embryo and I carried hers,” Cat explains. “It’s like surrogating, but obviously all of our kids are equal. “It’s really crazy! We decided that having them a year apart is harder than having kids as infants together.”
The good news is that in spite of dads being out, apparently babies are still in. No word yet on what’s going to happen to those huge 70s sunglasses people are wearing.
Tanya wonders: So when these kids are finally old enough to understand how babies are made (which, I’m thinking in this case will take way longer than the average bear) and want to know who their biological mother REALLY is… will the “mothers” cave and do DNA testing? Or will they insist beyond all reason that it’s really not important?
Brigitte says: I’m so glad the needs of the children always come first!
Rebecca adds: Call me a cynic, but I’m wondering how spectacularly ugly and complicated the (highly probable) custody suit will be.
