You see, none other than Dougherty’s sister, Lea Yribe, proposed that she be the egg donor – a suggestion that naturally delighted the aspiring parents. As a result, then, Eledge and Dougherty just needed to find a surrogate mother to carry the baby. And for that task, Eledge’s 61-year-old mom, Cecile Reynek Eledge, duly offered her services. But would the procedure actually work given Reynek Eledge’s age? And would the couple even take her proposition seriously?

Residents of Nebraska, Dougherty plies his trade as a hairdresser while also studying at the University of Nebraska Omaha; Eledge, on the other hand, worked as a school teacher at the time that he and his partner had embarked on their romance. And the pair had first met over the course of a summer a few years previously after having encountered each other through social media.

“I had been putting myself out there as a hairstylist and building my portfolio by working with local photographers and designers,” Dougherty wrote on the lifestyle website Love What Matters. “At the beginning of July, I received a Facebook message from a young man named Matthew Eledge. His profile description said [that] he was a Martian and an artistic warrior.”
