All In The Family
A 72-year-old man is due to become the father of his own “grandchild” by acting as a sperm donor for his daughter-in-law … After failing to have a child naturally the couple sought fertility treatment and discovered sperm problems. Doctors at their Harley Street clinic offered to provide sperm from an anonymous donor, but the couple wanted to use a member of their own family.
The baby born to the couple will be the grandfather’s genetic child and its father’s half-brother … keeping the genetic identity of the child similar to their own was a huge factor. The husband does not have a brother which is why he chose his own father to assist.” The child will be able to “track down” his genetic father if the parents do not reveal his identity.
