  • Prospective parents looking to get pregnant through donor eggs or sperm can filter and select from an extensive catalogue.
  • One company offers a face match service – clients can look for donors that resemble famous celebrities.
  • Others allow future parents to hear the voice of the donor and see photos of them as children.
  • While athletes and, surprisingly, musicians are popular donors, the most expensive genetic material comes from those who have signs of being highly intelligent.
  • Yet other parents prefer to leave it to the stars – sometimes literally – they can filter for donors by astrological sign.
  • One concern is that overly popular donors could lead to half siblings unknowingly finding and falling in love with one another.
