Two strangers who fell in love after conceiving a daughter through anonymous IVF have tied the knot, with their beautiful and unique love story set to become a feature film. Aminah Hart and Scott Andersen, from Victoria, first laid eyes on each other in 2013, a year after their daughter, Leila was born. Mr Andersen was a sperm donor and Ms Hart had decided to go through IVF after enduring the tragic loss of two sons, Marlon and Louis, to a genetic disorder called x-linked myotubular myopathy. She was prepared for motherhood but little did she know that the birth of her daughter, Leila would end up leading her to the love of her life, whom she married in a stunning lace gown atop a cliff overlooking the ocean in December.
When baby Leila was born on August 14, 2012, weighing a ‘big and healthy’ 3.9 kilos, Ms Hart said she felt ‘relieved’ but growing up without a father herself, she had always wanted her child’s father to play some role in their life.
Ms Hart’s mother, Helen did some digging and was able to find a picture of Mr Andersen online. She encouraged her daughter to get in contact with the clinic so they could pass on her information in case he wanted to get in touch or see a photo of his daughter, and luckily, Mr Andersen indicated he was willing to meet a child that came from his genetic pool.
