On Tuesday, the Come To My Window singer revealed that she and former partner Julie Cypher turned down the opportunity for Angelina Jolie‘s husband to be their sperm donor. WHAT??
While chatting with Australia’s Studio 10, the 54-year-old dished:
“He was such a good friend of mine, and we did consider it.”
However, it appears that Brad’s eagerness to have a family one day made the couple realize that accepting his seed might be a bad idea. She continued:
“I looked and I saw how badly he wanted children and I thought, ‘I don’t want to share this with someone who really, badly wants children because my children don’t need another parent ├óΓé¼ΓÇ¥ they have two.'”
While Melissa and Julie have no regrets on passing on having the A-lister’s kiddos, their two children are NOT thrilled that they missed out on the opportunity to be Pitt’s flesh and blood. Miz Etheridge quipped:
“Of course, my teenagers now are like, ‘I could have had Brad Pitt [as my dad]!’ My son said, ‘I could’ve been amazingly handsome. But no!'”
Still, it’s not like Melissa’s children don’t have a famous biological father. On choosing David Crosby to be the sperm donor, the I’m The Only One artist concluded:
“It’s one of the reasons why David Crosby and his wife are so perfect ├óΓé¼ΓÇ¥ because they already had children. They were looking to do this as a gift. My children are lovely and gorgeous anyway.”
Nonetheless, we still think that turning down Brad as the poppa of her children was a missed opportunity. Just sayin’!
