Here’s one way to get rid of the post-pregnancy pounds: you can sell your newborn twins to the tune of nine thousand pounds (about $13,450 US) and splurge on liposuction. Personally I’d go for eating less and working out more, but I’m just old-fashioned that way.
A Belgian mother of seven (including the twins) has been brought up on charges in an alleged rent-a-womb scheme that conned several Dutch couples out of money they thought was paying for Sonia Ringoir to carry their baby. More women have said Ringoir invited them over for “insemination parties,” where she gave them a syringe full of her (now estranged) husband’s sperm to use to inseminate themselves.
In case all of that isn’t strange enough for you – Ringoir eventually gave birth and opted to “give” the twins to a friend. She can’t be charged for giving away her babies, but she is facing fraud charges for taking money from the Dutch couples and not providing them with a baby. The Belgian government is also charging Ringoir with treating her babies in a “degrading,” manner. She faces up to five years in jail if convicted.
Then there’s that liposuction thing. Her new boyfriend says she was being pressured by her ex to have her body rebuilt. The ex has come out saying liposuction was at the heart of the scam.
How about just not getting pregnant again? Or, hey, here’s an idea: accepting the extra junk in your trunk and turning your entrepreunerial eye toward a way to make life better for your other five kids.
There I go again, being an old-fashioned parent.
