Disgusting: ‘I’m going to have a baby with my sister and we couldn’t be more excited about it’

Disgusting: ‘I’m going to have a baby with my sister and we couldn’t be more excited about it’

Samuel has received some unpleasant messages from people who have had knee-jerk reactions to his news, but the family are truly cheerful with their decision. It is a different world these days. The shame that kept people from going off the deep end no longer applies.


From the Mirror:

The idea that families come in all shapes and sizes has never been more true with adoption, same-sex relationships and the introduction of new ways to conceive.

Writer Samuel Leighton-Dore, 25, spoke to Mirror Online about his decision for his sister to have his child – and has opened up about the negative response it has received.

Samuel, from Sydney, is in a relationship with photographer and designer Bradley Tennant but doesn’t want to miss out on their baby having both of their family’s genes.

As a compromise, his sister Bronte has agreed to donate her eggs so that the couple can have the family they’ve always wanted.

Samuel told Mirror Online: “It’s not too strange when you break it down. We’ll be using IVF. It’ll be my sister’s egg and my partner’s sperm with a third-party surrogate, preferably someone who already has a family of their own.


“It’s the only way my partner and I can both have a biological connection to our future children.

“It might sound vain to some people, but I think the desire to have a child with the person you love is pretty intrinsic and natural.”

The couple aren’t entering into the decision lightly. Samuel says a baby is still “a few years away” as the process is all very expensive, but he stresses that “it’s definitely something you have to think about and plan ahead of time.”

Samuel has been floating the idea with Bronte on and off for a while, but says they started speaking more seriously about it as they got older.

This is the result when standards, morals and a basic, and I mean BASIC, sense of right and wrong are thrown to the wayside to make room for ‘Just be true to yourself’ mentality. Now when you attempt to correct behavior like this, you are labeled a ‘hater’ and a bigot.

The world is upside down.
