According to this, 72 year old Pearl Carter is having a baby (via surrogate) with her boyfriend.
I’ve told you my feelings on people that old having kids. It’s selfish and mean and horrible and wrong. But that’s just the tip of the iceberg in this case. Because the man who will be the father figure in this baby’s life is Pearl’s grandson. AND THEY ARE A COUPLE.
I’ll wait a moment while you stop dry heaving.
Anyway, to make a long story short, Pearl had a daughter when she was 18, and gave her up for adoption. This daughter later had a son, and then unfortunately passed away from brain cancer. The son (Phil) decided to look for his grandmother when, basically on her deathbed, his mom told him about being adopted. After a 3 year search, he found Pearl, wrote her a letter, met her, and did the next logical thing – became her lover.
To my horror, the article goes into detail about what a fabulous sex life the two of them have together. To quote Pearl: “‘Living with Phil as my life partner has been amazing. He cooks and cleans and we make love three times a week. We can’t keep our hands off each other.”
And now they’re going to be parents. And grandparents. And great grandparents? I don’t really know. But the point is, they’re having sex and being a COUPLE.
Amazingly, they found a surrogate willing to have a baby for them. A picture of the happy little family is below:
Sick and Wrong.
