A woman is pregnant with another man’s baby and her husband couldn’t be happier. Kylie Evans, 35, faced fertility challenges with her husband Mick, 63, who had undergone a vasectomy long before they met.

Despite their significant age difference, the couple shared a dream of having children and pursued sperm donation at a clinic, choosing a donor who resembled Mick – from having blue eyes to being a similar build.

They invested around £6,000 in fertility treatments, aiming for a donor who shared Mick’s blue eyes and 5ft 7inch frame. Kylie struggled with ovulation issues and was ineligible for IVF due to a high BMI, reaching a peak weight of 24st 13lb and a size 26.

The duo saved enough for Kylie to have gastric surgery in Latvia, costing £7,000, which led to a dramatic 13 stone weight loss. Subsequently, Kylie successfully became pregnant naturally in October 2023 using donor sperm, reports the Manchester Evening News.

Now at 36 weeks pregnant, Kylie and Mick eagerly anticipate the arrival of their son in July 2024. Kylie, a waitress from Bury, expressed their joy: “Mick was more than happy using a sperm donor.”

She added, “The clinic helped us pick one out that would match his looks – his hair colour, his eyes and height. You don’t see a photo but get a description.”

“The weight loss surgery completely turned my life around, we wouldn’t be having a baby with it. We can’t wait to be parents.”

Kylie confessed that she was ‘always bigger but really started gaining weight in her late teens. She had been diagnosed with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) a condition that affects ovulation.

Kylie is of the opinion that this contributed to her weight gain, as well working two jobs a cafe in the day and an Italian restaurant during the evening.

She revealed: “The Italians love to feed you and I couldn’t say no. I’d pick at pizza and pasta all evening while I worked. Then I’d come with leftovers and binge on food all night.”

Kylie met her older husband Mick when he was a customer at the pub she worked at in 2008. The couple spent six years trying to conceive with ‘no progress at all’.

She added: “A sperm donor was the cheapest route, and it doesn’t matter to us how the baby is made. We knew we’d love them no matter what.”

“I was getting older, and it was crunch time for me. If I didn’t lose the weight, it might have been too late to have a baby.”

The couple got to work saving the money for Kylie to undergo weight loss surgery abroad. It took them nearly eight months to save up £7k but in January 2022, Kylie finally had the procedure.

She said: “We worked two jobs, seven days a week, and managed to save up the money. Mick came with me, and it was absolutely amazing. The nurses were great and everything went really smoothly.”

Kylie, experiencing her ovulation cycle once more, opted to try using a sperm donor again and underwent artificial insemination in October 2023. Much to their joy, Kylie had a positive pregnancy test result in November 2023, confirming they were expecting a baby boy.

She revealed: “I’ve had a terrible time during pregnancy – I won’t do it again. But it’ll all be worth it.”

“My life, my confidence, my health, the way I feel about myself, everything has changed dramatically after surgery. If anyone is considering it, I say do it. It’s the best decision I ever made.”
