MODERN romance features Aminah Hart who wanted her daughter to meet her biological father – the one who sired her by donating his sperm.

A British-born woman who had a child through IVF is engaged to the anonymous sperm donor she tracked down and later fell in love with. Aminah Hart, 45, an Australian woman born in London, only met her fiance after she had given birth to their daughter Leila, it has been reported.

She originally selected Scott Andersen, an Australian cattle farmer who lives on an island off the south coast, from five possible sperm donors because she liked that he listed himself as “happy and healthy”.

Aminah discovered his identity through a series of internet searches based on his name as well as his profession as a cattle breeder and his role as a Aussie rules football coach.

One thing led to another and Scott and Aminah met and fell in love.

Mr Andersen says:

“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.”

Technology is marvellous:

Ms Hart previously had two sons from a husband in London and a partner in Australia, but both babies died. She then learnt that she was the carrier of a rare genetic disorder which affects sons but not daughters.

At age 42, she decided to try one last time for a healthy baby using IVF.

There’s a film in this…
