It wasn’t just a passing thought, either – she even went to a gynecologist to get confirmation that she could bear a child in her 80s. “She said to me, ‘Honey, I’m not talking about having a child of my own. I mean, it’s crazy, I’m 85… “Anderson recalled this week on” The Late Show with Stephen Colbert “(via ET).” ‘I was thinking, you take an egg and fertilize it with it. a sperm, and I’ll carry your baby, ‘”he continued, mimicking her voice.” I finally said to her, I was like,’ Mom, I love you, but even for you, it’s just crazy about bats ***. It’s just crazy. ‘ It’s so strangely Oedipal on a whole new level. ”He added – perhaps rightly -“ That kid would be on the cover of the New York Post for the rest of his life. ”She didn’t turn up, though. Anderson then recalled that two years after bringing up the idea for the first time, he had received something from his mother in the mail. “… It’s a newspaper clipping,” he explained. , “and it’s a picture, the title is ‘Grandmother bear child for son’, and it’s a woman, I think in Italy who was 65 or something, or 70.” He said that it was about a woman carrying her gay son’s child. “And that’s a photo of her in the labor room in the stirrups,” he continued. “She’s in the room. delivery room with her legs in the thing, and her son and husband are right there, ready to catch. And my mother circled it and wrote in a note: ‘You see!’ “Alas, Gloria failed to convince her son that she should bear her firstborn. Anderson welcomed her son there. last year with the help of a surrogate mother who was not related to him (ahem). He is now raising Wyatt with his ex and close friend, Benjamin Maisani. Gloria passed away in 2019.
