A 23-year-old woman has been granted permission by the court to harvest her late boyfriend’s sperm so that she can start a family on her own. She claims that her boyfriend ‘always wanted’ to have children in the future.

When Ayla Cresswell, from Queensland, in Australia, lost her partner Joshua Davies, 23, in August, she immediately went to court to ensure that his sperm would be preserved. On Friday, Supreme Court Justice Martin Burns ruled in her favour which meant that she will now be able to fulfill her dream of starting a family with Davies.

 

Cresswell revealed to the court that not only was the couple planning to get married but they had also discussed about having ‘three children’. The two had been in a romantic relationship for two years before Davies’ demise. Her decision has been fully supported by her late partner’s parents, reports The Courier Mail.
