THE TELEGRAPH – Kenzie Kilpatrick has had a busy year.
Over the course of the past 13 months, the 26-year-old from Birmingham has donated his sperm to nine women. He says he is now the father of seven children (two girls and five boys – including a set of twins), with another three women expected to give birth to his offspring in the next month.
The children are the result of Mr Kilpatrick’s decision to create a Facebook page last summer advertising his services as a “drama free UK sperm donor”.
After being contacted by the women – the majority of whom are in a lesbian relationship – Mr Kilpatrick arranged to meet them at their homes or in a hotel room. He would then produce a sperm sample, to be artificially inseminated using a syringe in private.
He says he was only paid expenses for his services, to cover travel, accommodation, and any loss of earnings.
- The private lives of sperm donors
Mr Kilpatrick told the Birmingham Mail that he decided to donate his sperm after reading sites about donation on the internet.
“To know I’ve helped people who have suffered for so long, desperately wanting to have a baby, has been my biggest motivator,” he said. “I also feel incredible knowing that I will have ten babies out there continuing my genes.
“But I don’t feel like I need to know the babies or stay in touch with their families – I just provided the sperm. I’m not attached to them.”
