Sperm donor who ‘fathered 35 kids’ says demand has soared during Covid pandemic

A dad of many says interest in sperm donors has shot up during the coronavirus pandemic.

The 29-year-old, who goes by the name Kyle Gordy, has fathered 35 kids and has six more on the way.

He meets aspiring mums in the two Facebook groups he runs, which have around 23,000 combined followers.

Even though he’s based in the US, Kyle jets around the world to meet with women.

He told Sky News: "I get to travel to interesting places. It does feel like an adventure sometimes.

"I've been busier because of the pandemic. There's definitely been an increase in women requesting sperm."

Kyle, who started donating sperm aged 22, is planning to head to the UK later this year in order to meet a woman who has asked for his services.

He also hopes to bring baby joy to more families when he’s in Britain too.

While “90%” of his clients choose the artificial insemination method, the remaining women go down the “natural” route by sleeping with him.

He revealed: "The women decide how they want go about it.

"Usually women who want to do natural feel it's going to be more effective so that's why they choose that route."

To help reduce the risk of spreading sexually transmitted diseases, Kyle gets tested a few times a year.

Despite this, charities have warned against meeting up with “sperm donors” you meet online.

Fertility Network UK’s chief executive Gwenda Burns says she has “huge concerns” about the unregulated method.

She said: "The potential risks outweigh any benefits they think may come from going down that route.

"I find the whole thing really concerning."

The HFEA website adds: “It’s always safer to have treatment with donor sperm at a licensed clinic.

“Clinics in the UK are required by law to ensure that donors, patients and any future children are protected by carrying out rigorous health tests and offering everyone involved counselling.”

When finding your own donor, the charity urges: “Never accept a donor who is not prepared to have health screening (for infectious and inherited diseases) and make sure you have written evidence of the results.”
