Woman gives birth after secret IVF donation by George Michael
A woman has given birth after receiving a secret IVF donation from the late George Michael.
Lynette Gillard was gifted an anonymous £9000 IVF donation by the singer after he saw her appear on Deal or No Deal in 2008.
Gillard walked away from the game show with just £3,000.
However, Michael was moved by her fight to get pregnant and decided to give her the donation so she could pay for another round of IVF.
He contacted the bosses on the show on the strict condition that he remain anonymous in his donation.
The donation meant that Gillard and her partner could afford to pay for some medical tests which identified cells in her body which killed embryos.
The condition was treated, but the ninth round of IVF failed.
However, the pair decided to try one last time but Gillard ended up conceiving naturally.
The 38-year-old has now given birth to her son, Seth Logan George Hart.
Gillard, of Greater Manchester, found out where the money came from after Michael died last year on Christmas day.
