Here’s no denying Josh “JP” Patterson is hot, but when we caught up with him, it was also confirmed he’s a thoroughly charming man. After splitting from girlfriend Binky Felstead – mother of his 17-month-old daughter India – earlier this year, model JP, 2
he previously gushed that she “couldn’t wait” to have a baby with her fiancé Chris Zylka, revealing they’d scheduled it in for next year. Sadly, things don’t always go according to plan and last week, we revealed that Paris Hilton, 37, had called off her ten-month engagement to the 33-year-old actor, believing he was more interested in her £300million fortune than her.
But not being in a relationship isn’t going to stop Paris’ baby dream – and now she’s taking matters into her own hands by seeking a sperm donor. “Paris is off men,” we’re told by an insider close to the heiress. “She was so sure Chris was The One, and now she feels she got it completely wrong. She sees what [her sister] Nicky has with her husband and two kids, and she’s jealous. So, now she’s reached out to a sperm-donor agency.”
Naturally, the original “It” girl has high standards for her future babydaddy. “She is seeking an anonymous donor with extremely good looks, high IQ, and from a family with a top pedigree,” the source reveals. There’s a hitch, though, in that donors
Sdon’t tend to be from millionaire backgrounds. After all, rich people don’t need to sell their sperm.
“At the moment, Paris is frustrated that no one seems to fulfill her criteria,” our source continues. “But she’s not giving up and is scouring donor lists worldwide for the perfect candidate. She feels like being a single mum really goes well with her image of a can-do-it-all businesswoman who doesn’t need a man to succeed.” Earlier this year, Paris revealed Nicky’s newborn baby Teddy had given her “baby fever”, and she wanted “at least two” children of her own with Chris.
While this is Paris’ third cancelled wedding – she was previously engaged to model Jason Shaw in 2003, and Greek shipping heir Paris Latsis in 2005 – she’s hinted she will continue with her baby plans with or without a prospective dad. Last week, she posted on Instagram, “Don’t let anyone burst your bubble,” and, “Life is short, it’s up to you to make it sweet.”
Atta-girl, Paris – we hope you’re laughing all the way to the sperm bank. ■ REBECCA GREENOW
