Mother of four – and Iron Chef – Cat Cora brings help to Haiti

Lesbian mother of four – Cat Cora – is helping bring relief to Haiti along with former Sen. Bob Kerrey and Timberland CEO Jeff Swartz. Cora is the founder of the relief group Chefs for Humanity [pictured], which delivers nutritional aid to those who badly need it.

Kerrey, who lost part of a leg while serving in the Vietnam War, helps provide aid at a Handicap International center that provides prosthetics for those who lost limbs in the quake. The group also visits a Partners in Health clinic that’s working to give Haitians access to health care.

According to Zap2it: “The goal of their trip was not just to parachute in and offer temporary assistance, but to help Haitians develop things like sustainable agriculture and nutritional education that can have lasting effects for months and years down the line.”

She was artificially inseminated for her first pregnancy, but the second she carried to term using Cat’s embryo. In Jennifer’s current pregnancy, both women’s embryos were implanted, so the biological mother is unknown. They do not to plan to conduct DNA testing to determine the baby’s biological mother.

Each of the couple’s children was conceived through insemination or in-vitro with the same anonymous sperm donor, making the children biological brothers.
