I want to have your baby is a ground-breaking new human interest show in which couples or singles that are childless against their will make a final attempt to fulfill their dreams of parenthood.
Achieving this dream is not that easy because the candidates of I want to have your baby can only have a child with the help of someone else. That other person could be, for example, a surrogate mother for a homosexual couple. It could also be a sperm donor who may also want to share a parenting role with a 36-year-old single woman. It could also be an egg cell donor for a couple where the woman had ovarian cancer. I want to have your baby will follow the search for that person that will assist in the process of expanding the family all they way through childbirth.
The candidates’ goal for participating in this program is clear: to achieve childbirth within a year and a half from the start of the program. In I want to have your baby, candidates will carefully ask a good friend if he is willing to make a donation, have speed dates with people they meet on the Internet, or fly abroad for immediate treatment with an anonymous donation. In summary, they actively engage in the search for a donor and are not afraid to explore all alternatives; from calls for help on the internet, to approaching strangers on the street, or inviting a surrogate mother into their homes.
