Mom Falls In Love With Anonymous Sperm Donor 12 Years After Giving Birth To Daughter


Jessica Share didn’t meet the father of her children until 12 years after they were born. In fact, she didn’t even know who the man was until a chance encounter following a DNA test. The man had anonymously donated his sperm, but once the two finally met, sparks were flying. It was the beginning of a love story neither of them would ever forget.

The Beginning Of It All

In 2005, Share and her ex-wife each carried a child fathered by Aaron Long’s sperm donation. Three years after their oldest daughter, Alice, was born, the marriage ended, and Share’s ex-wife left with their youngest daughter.

But 10 years later, Alice studied her DNA history with a home kit, 23andMe, to determine her ancestry. When she discovered Long was her father, Share decided to contact him.

Meeting The Father Of Her Child

Share contacted Long on the DNA website and the two began messaging and interacting on social media. The two worked together to discover Long had fathered 10 children through his sperm donations, but he estimates he could have at least 67 children.

Long arranged a reunion in his home city, Seattle, where his children could meet him and each other. Once meeting in person, Share immediately connected with her daughters’ father after all these years. She wondered if she finally found “her person.”

Their ‘Modern Love’ Story

The couple hit it off and have been dating for over a year. They know their love story is unique and unconventional, but they wouldn’t trade it for the world. The couple has since shared their story with multiple media outlets, including The New York Times.

Long refers to their relationship as “modern love.” He says that the couple are either, “pawns of fate or unwitting participants in a chromosomally arranged marriage.” He knew their bond was real from the very beginning.

If you’re interested in learning more about the couple and their unique family, documentary filmmakers Matt Isaac and Craig Downing followed Long’s journey to connect with his offspring in an upcoming documentary, Forty Dollars a Pop. In the documentary, the siblings all notice they have one thing in common: Long’s distinct, “big” nose. They’re definitely his kids.
