Love Story: Mother Fell In Love With Her ‘Anonymous’ Sperm Donor

  • Pin It

via ABC AU:
The back-to-front romance of IVF recipient Aminah Hart and her anonymous sperm donor, Scott Andersen, has moved up a notch with the announcement of their engagement.

The couple was holidaying in Thailand with their two-year-old daughter Leila when Australian Story featured their improbable love story last Monday night.

It told the story of Ms Hart’s decision to have IVF after losing two sons to a rare genetic disorder.

Legislative changes passed in Victoria in 2010 had opened access to IVF for single women, giving Ms Hart one last chance of becoming a mother to a healthy baby.

She was given three choices of anonymous sperm donors, with the information giving their vital statistics, physical qualities, medical history and hobbies.

She chose the one named Scott who described himself as “happy and healthy”.

Mr Andersen had agreed to recipients and offspring contacting him, but did not think it would happen for years.

After arranging a meeting Ms Hart and Mr Andersen subsequently fell in love.
Global interest in the couple’s story

Ms Hart and Mr Andersen said after Australian Story aired their tale they were “inundated” with interview requests from media around the world, but they managed to keep quiet about their engagement until their return to Australia yesterday, when they shared their news with family and friends.

“Scott and I had talked about getting married before,” said Ms Hart.

“But [we thought] not for about another five years.”

Ms Hart said that had Louis, her second child to die from a rare genetic disorder, lived, he would have recently turned six.

She was thinking about him on his birthday, October 31, during their Thailand trip when the unexpected happened.

“I was feeling melancholy and imagining what Louis would be like at six,” she said.

“Scott returned from the shops with some milk for Leila. He reached out to hold my hand and in his very laconic, unfussy way, asked me to marry him.

“And then he produced a ring from a shop in the village. I loved it because it was so Scott.

“Maybe we’re rushing it. Who knows? We’ve both got a track record of marriages that have ended.

“As Scott said, ‘I’ve got five kids to three women and you’ve got three kids to three men!’

“But it just feels right – I feel very certain of that.

“None of this has been at all conventional. We certainly are a very modern family.”

The couple plan to be married at the end of next year.

A Hollywood film company has shown interest in a possible movie about their unusual love story.

    no….she wasnt a wife nor fiance….they were sexual partners…..Gary isnt a deadbeat dad, he is providing for the child…nor in this little paragraph does it mention whatever or not he spend time with his child……I think its an outrage that the courts re-awarded her that kind of child-support….the kids r part hers too…she found herself a cash cow and she is using it to the fullest…in my opinion….

      She is also a mean spirited and vindictive hussy. I don’t ‘t care for her personality at all. The only purpose she would serve on the show would be to keep the drama flowing. Her and Kenya would definitely bump heads.

  • First of all she has no morals or values sleeping with a married man. Then to be so irresponsible to get pregnant.  What does her friend Nene has to say about that? She’s always trowing that in Kim’s face every time they argue. I bet Diana thought he would leave his wife or the wife would leave him. I think it is ridiculous for the court to award that much in child support. Does she have a job or is she herself living off of child support? I’m sure she is.  I don’t blame him for trying to get the payments reduced, shes taking care of another man’s child with the money he provides for his children. Where is this other man? Make him pay his childs private school tuition. I bet her other childs father from the previous relationship dosen’t pay child support and I’m sure she not trying to collect from him either.  Most of the housewives aren’t married to anyone so….yes, she does qualtify.

    If the settlement was re-raised then something isn’t right if they could prove she mismanaged the money. Maybe I don’t know much about the child support issues

  • mawella

    I think he got what was coming to him maybe he will think twice before he lays up with another woman while he is married, now his wife an kids have to suffer because of his actiions, but at same time i dont she should get that much money since she was in the wrong too iits not like she didint know he was married in the first place, so now she has two more kids that doesnt have and daddy in their lives if, anything  they should feel bad about the problems they have cost and be the adults they claim to be an make sure that the kids has both parents in their lives.

    • Pellerinr

      I totally agree but she’s getting that much money because of his salary.he’ s a millionaire so it’s not hurting him. Maybe he will think again before he gets involved with another woman while he’s married.

  • Nomorals

    Nene needs to tell her  so-called friend to “close her legs to married men”.

  • Mstwin13

    Sometimes our mistakes can cost us alot. Plus she didn’t just get money hungry overnight.

  • sweep your own backporch

    Why is this ANYBODYS BUISNESS?

  • JustSayin

    To be honest… I really don’t see the problem. Yes; she dealt with a married man but that is not what is on the table. What is being discussed is the fact that she gets close to $30,000 in child support. Question; if the father of your child made close to 1 million a month… how much money should you get for child support? $400? $1,000? 1 million… and you are asking for 30,000? that is not even close to 30% which is the going rate. So; what is everyone made at exactly? That she had a baby by a married man or that she is getting 3% in child support from him? Its not as if the children are hungry, not in the best schools or being taken care of. Its not as if they get the same network connections because of who their father is… if anything they are being denied because that are considered the “other” children. But let me guess… the blame is on her not him? So; she should be called the hussie, jezebel and other rude names? And; he is just an unfortunate rich man who fell into the arms of a woman over the course of a four year period and had twins? Got it… (side eye)
