*A woman who decided to have her baby via in vitro fertilization actually hunted down the sperm donor, they fell in love, and now they are engaged.
British-born Aminah Hart, 45, is an Australian woman who was born in London. She met her fiance after she had given birth to their daughter Leila, it has been reported.
She chose Scott Andersen, an Australian cattle farmer, from a list of five potential sperm donors because she liked his presentation. He had listed himself as “happy and healthy.”
Aminah researched him through a variety of internet searches using his name , his profession as a cattle breeder, and his work as a Aussie rules football coach.
But she didn’t contact him directly. The contact was made through the official IVF register.
He was not bound by any legal requirements to meet Leila until she turned 18 but chose to do so after he saw a picture of her and realized how much she looked like him and his four other children from two previous marriages.
They met for the first time in Melbourne – four days after Leila’s first birthday. It didn’t take long for the pair to fall in love and announce their engagement.
This is the stuff that movies are made of, and yes, Hollywood has come-a-calling.
Mr. Andersen told the Telegraph: “Neither of us expected it to happen. I fell in love with Leila before I fell in love with Aminah.
“It was all odd at the start. But Leila’s beautiful. We arranged to meet once a month. Aminah and I became quite friendly and Leila started calling me daddy and coming to me all the time.”
