A man desperate for an heir has sent 200 flyers to potential surrogate mothers in his area because his 74-year-old girlfriend cannot bear him children.
The unusual note appeared in mailboxes in North Canberra neighborhoods last week, detailing the man’s bizarre parenting plan.
The 32-year-old author who claims he has already received two offers wrote in the flyer that he “needs an heir” and offered to pay the surrogate mother for her problems.
The man asks for only five days of parental authority a year, asking that it be during the Christmas holidays so that he can ‘take it easy at home’ with his heir.
32-year-old Ngunnawal man sent 200 flyers to addresses in north Canberra in an attempt to find a potential surrogate mother
The leaflet offers potential surrogate mothers two options for conceiving the baby: ‘manual transfer of sperm or sex according to preference’.
The man said he decided to make the posters after many failed stints on dating apps Tinder and Bumble, as well as co-parenting app ‘Just a Baby’.
“But nothing is more effective than putting out a flyer,” said the anonymous man 7 NEWS.
Under the agreement, the woman who bears her child must be between 18 and 26 years old and her mother between 35 and 50 years old.

The man explains that the age restrictions are intended to provide optimal health outcomes and “ensure the survival of the child.”
In a ‘legally binding’ document prepared by the man’s attorneys, he promises that all rights and obligations go to the mother, but that she will not receive child support.
However, the man promises that his heir will have a ‘secure financial future’ and will inherit the estate of his paternal fathers and grandfathers after his death.
To sweeten the deal, he offers a one-time payment of $ 5,000 to the mother and requests that requests be sent exclusively from addresses in northern Canberra.
He explains that this is in favor of ‘shared parental arrangements’.
The man said he has already corresponded with two people in the area who seem “genuinely interested” in his offer.

The 32-year-old said he had to turn down a 19-year-old girl because he considered her 14-year-old sister to be dependent.
“The reason for no other dependents is that I want my child to have a lot of attention and not have to compete for attention,” he explained.
And while the man may be childless, he admitted that he is currently pursuing a romance with a 74-year-old widow, who unfortunately cannot bear him a child.
It was the couple’s big age difference that led the man to send in the posters to find his perfect surrogate mother.
A woman from Canberra took to a local Facebook group to share her confusion after receiving the unusual note on Sunday afternoon.
Her post was inundated with angry social media users who described the note as “ creepy, ” and some even reported it to the local police.
“This is disgusting, so creepy and just plain awful,” commented one user.
“Who said romance was dead?” another joked.
Canberra local police are currently investigating whether the man committed a letter violation by offering a cash payment for surrogacy
‘Not even child benefits? One-time payment of $ 5,000? Man, sounds like a goddamn deal. 18 years and 9 months of your life for a handjob to get what he wants. Obviously, this man does NOT know how to negotiate, ”said a third.
Local police are currently investigating whether the man committed an offense in his desperate plea for surrogacy.
“ACT Policing is aware of unaddressed letters requesting surrogacy services for an ‘heir’ left in mailboxes in the outskirts of North Canberra,” said a police spokesperson.
The content is distasteful and offering a cash payment for surrogacy could be a violation.
“We expect everyone who receives such a letter to put it in the trash.”
READ THE FULL LETTER
Letter to the mother of the child to be conceived.
On the date of conception, the mother must be between 18 and 26 years old and her mother between 35 and 50 years old. This is optimal to ensure that the child lives with the mother who has only recently reached the age of independence. They should live together or separately as legal parents with no other dependents. This is ideal.
Prior to this date, my attorney will draft a legally binding agreement stating that all rights and obligations will fully belong to the maternal line as de facto with mother and daughter as legal parents and the child adopting my last name. It will also state that neither party has to pay child support.
The paternal father and family have a number of privileges to see the child from time to time while the father takes a copy of the birth certificate after the birth. But there will be no regular co-parenting arrangements. The child becomes the beneficiary of the estate of the fathers and paternal grandfathers and has a secure financial future.
To promote the above terms, a payment of $ 5,000 will be due to the maternal family on the father’s date of birth. In addition, the father requests residential custody 5 days a year during the Christmas holidays.
The agreement for conception will be a choice between artificial or natural insemination, depending on the preferences of the mother. North Canberra only.
The bottom line is that the future father needs an heir.
