Quintuplets for Australian lesbian couple

Melissa Keevers (27) and Rosemary Nolan (21) are expecting five babies to be born around the end of this year. The couple used the same American sperm donor who had fathered their 1-year old daughter. Ms Nolan, who is from Ireland, met Ms Keevers while on holiday in Australia. The pair found the biological father, a 27-year old US law student, through an internet fertility company based in America. He has signed away any rights to the children and will never meet them. The family made headlines in the UK’s Daily Mail and Canada’s Montreal Gazette, after speaking to Australia’s Woman’s Day magazine.
