A WOMAN has revealed how she found out she had 50 secret siblings after doing a DNA test, as her dad was a sperm donor.
TikTok user Izzayyy, who posts under @izzyvn_98, said she is now terrified she will date a “brother” of hers but not realise they are related.
In a video, she explained: “In 2018 I did an ancestry test to see where I’m actually from.
“I get my results back and I’m not as Italian as I thought.
“I get a message from a random woman asking if I’m related to a specific person or family because I matched with her daughter and I said no.
“So then she asks if I was a sperm baby because her daughter was too and now I’m freaking out because she could be my sister because I am a donor baby.”
The TikTok user explained how she has two mums, and they used a sperm donor so they could have a child of their own.
Then, @izzyvn_98 told how her “half sister” matched with her and informed her about other mothers who used the same sperm donor.
She also gave her the link to a private Facebook group of all their “siblings” who came from their dad – and the TikTok was shocked to find there were 50 of them.
She added: “And now there’s paranoia about overpopulation because some of them are afraid there are so many of us and we may end up dating someone who happens to be a sibling.”
The woman added: “What a life lol.”
The TikToker told followers that she doesn’t want a relationship with her new siblings as she feels awkward about the situation.
One follower replied: “Oh my god. The dating siblings thing caught me outta nowhere.”
Another added: “Feel ya girl. I have exactly 100 donor siblings lolz.”
In the UK, a maximum of 10 families can benefit from one sperm donor, with parents being permitted to request the same sperm for siblings if they wish.
Thanks to amendments to The Human Fertilisation & Act (HFE Act), which were added in April 2005, anonymity of donors has been removed.
Children born as a result of sperm donation can now request access to identifying information about their donor once they reach the age of 18.
Meanwhile, a man revealed he has got 150 kids by having sex as a sperm donor.
And a couple found sperm donor on Facebook as they were desperate for a baby, they first met when he came round to give them the sample.
