The Iron Chef and her wife both have buns in their ovens.
Cat Cora, star of Food Network’s “Iron Chef America,” announced Tuesday that she was 4-1/2 months pregnant with a boy.
But this is where it gets interesting.
Cora’s partner Jennifer, with whom she already has two sons, is also pregnant, and due in April, three months before Cora.
“Jennifer and I are thrilled to go through the wonderful experience of pregnancy together. We started the in-vitro process 5 years ago,” said Cora, who is due in July. “This has been a miracle for us and we’ll now have 4 beautiful children.”
But we’re not done. It gets even more interesting.
Cora is carrying Jennifer’s biological child. And their second child, now 23 months old, was conceived using Cora’s egg, but carried by Jennifer.
In Jennifer’s current pregnancy, both women’s embryos were implanted, so they don’t know who the biological mother is, and they say they don’t plan on doing DNA testing to find out.
The same anonymous sperm donor was used for all four pregnancies, making all four kids biologically related.
And you thought your family life was complicated.
