Only in New York? This story is bananas.

Four years ago, then-City Council Member Melinda Katz was on the cover of the NY Post for announcing that she was pregnant via in-vitro fertilization—making her a single mom.

It was done at my wish and my desire." Now, Katz has revealed the donor was Guardian Angels founder Curtis Sliwa—and now the pair are getting married!
