Mom Falls In Love With Daughter’s Anonymous Sperm Donor 12 Years After Giving Birth

The internet is buzzing over an unlikely love story involving a divorced lesbian mother who met her anonymous sperm donor 12 years after giving birth to his child.

Jessica Share met Aaron Long after her daughter Alice requested a DNA-testing kit for Christmas when she was 11-years old. The discovery would change their lives forever, as they learned Aaron was also connected with six other children he anonymously fostered.

Aaron, clearly a prodigious sperm donor, estimates he may have 67 other children roaming the earth.

Though it’s definitely a strange dynamic, there’s plenty of love in this unusual family. 

Once Jessica and Aaron met, she couldn’t help but notice how many positive qualities he shared with her daughter and her half-siblings Bryce and Madi. Jessica’s profound attraction to her child’s surrogate father formed a romantic bond that’s stranger than fiction.

“It’s hard to tell if DNA played a role in our relationship. I know that I am attracted to Aaron for all the reasons that seemed wonderful when shopping for him in a sperm donor catalogue years ago. He is thoughtful, persistent, and academically-minded. He is enchanted by words. He is empathetic, versed in stories about people and the strange things they sometimes do. He doesn’t much care what’s expected of him. He often plays his own music. To his own drum. Sometimes in a turban.”

BBC Stories shared a handy Twitter thread detailing how Alice linked up with her half-siblings.

It also explains how Jessica and Aaron started their relationship.

This is adorable! People on social media reacted emotionally.

Others were quick to crack a few jokes.

Some found the idea of meeting a bunch of anonymously fathered kids disturbing.

Jessica feels love for all her daughter’s half-siblings.

Though the internet remains somewhat freaked out, it’s clear DNA-testing helped bring this family together in the best way possible. We hope Jessica and Aaron keep up their one-of-a-kind romance!
