We thought Love Is Blind was pretty crazy when contestants agreed to get engaged without even seeing their potential spouses.
But when it comes to reality dating shows, you really ain’t seen nothing yet. Labor of Love premiered last night in the States, and the premise is simple – find the protagonist a baby daddy.
The Fox series sees 15 men all competing to start a family with Kristy Katzmann, whether that’s as a boyfriend or a sperm donor. Kristy, 41, spent her thirties working and travelling the world, but a marriage at 37 ended after six months. She told the Los Angeles Times: ‘I thought the baby piece would fall into place — I’d meet the right person, we’d start a family. But when I turned 40 those alarms were really going off.
‘I think a lot of women are in the same position as me. So, what maybe seems outlandish at the start is actually a really relatable story. And there is so much heart and soul in the show.’ (Text, photo – Metro)
