Entertainment personality Sherri Shepherd and her husband Sal are having a baby through artificial insemination. Sherri, 46, and her 59-year-old husband, Lamar Salley will forego the expense and risks involved with a natural pregnancy at her age. Instead, the couple have rented a womb and are waiting patiently for their baby girl to arrive.
Michael Jackson’s daughter Paris Jackson, 15, and her biological mother Debbie Rowe went to lunch together at Fire Island Grill in Palmdale, California on Sunday (April 28). Rowe, who befriended Jackson in the 1990s, agreed to bear 2 children for him (Paris and Prince) through artificial insemination. Rowe was paid an undisclosed sum of money in return for giving up her parental rights. Paris and her mother have grown close in recent months. Katherine Jackson, who has custody of Paris and her brothers Prince Michael, 16, and Blanket, 11, will be in a California court today for the start of her $40 billion negligence lawsuit against concert organizer AEG Live, who she says hired Conrad Murray, Michael’s personal physician, to make sure he got enough rest for 50 concerts planned at London’s 02 Arena. Murray is serving a 4-year sentence for causing the death of Michael Jackson with an illegal dose of surgical anesthetic in 2009. The trial is expected to last 3 months. The star-studded witness list includes singer Prince, Quincy Jones, Diana Ross, Michael’s ex-wife Lisa Marie Presley, ‘Hulk’ actor Lou Ferrigno, Rowe and Michael’s children, Prince and Paris.

Loyal reader Olivia sent in this image of Beyonce’s daughter Blue Ivy. Twitter user @MissSandraLina says the image was taken from Beyonce’s HBO special. The image looks Photoshopped to me. But the Beyonce Stans are in a frenzy now that they have the clearest photo of the Golden child that we’ve seen thus far.
Blue Ivy and her rumored biological mother Solange Knowles look like twins, don’t they?
See the photo after the break.
When lesbian couple Jennifer Schreiner and Angela Bauer wanted a baby to complete their family in 2009, they turned to a friend, William Marotta, to donate his sperm. But the unorthodox “new normal” arrangement may lead to financial ramifications for the well meaning 46-year-old married man.
The state of Kansas sued Marotta for child support of the now 3-year-old girl after Schreiner filed for state assistance.
Marotta told The Topeka Capital-Journal newspaper he’s “a little scared about where this is going to go, primarily for financial reasons.”
