George Michael covered IVF costs for childless British couple

  George Michael covered IVF costs for childless British couple George Michael secretly covered the costs of in vitro fertilisation (IVF) for one British couple after hearing of its struggle to conceive naturally on TV. Stories about the late pop icon's low-key generosity have been hitting headlines ever since the Faith hitmaker's shock death on Christmas Day (25Dec16), and on Tuesday (03Jan16), a woman named Jo Maidment revealed she has George to thank for her daughter, because he quietly funded her medical treatment after she shared her baby struggle on U.K. show This Morning back in 2010. Returning to the series on Tuesday, Jo explained she had no idea who the mystery donor was at first, as the singer's personal assistant only described him as a "businessman" who "would like to donate some money for one cycle of IVF for you". "I didn't believe it at first," she explained, "and it took me a good few days to respond because that wasn't what I came on the show for, I wanted to help other people in my position. But then we agreed to it, because (the assistant) said it was what this particular man wanted." Jo tragically suffered a miscarriage after her first attempt at IVF, and was sent flowers from her anonymous supporter, but when she finally welcomed her first child, a daughter named Betsy in 2012, she learned who had been funding her efforts to become a mum.

In a new interview Dannii Minogue, 45, revealed her sister has always dreamt of being a mother but now, at the age of 48, it’s a dream which has caused her infinite pain.

“Growing up it was Kylie who always wanted kids and I never did,” the former X Factor judge told Sunday Telegraph magazine Stella, adding Kylie was born for the role.

“When my brother Brendan had his little boy [Charles, now 10] I hadn’t a clue how to hold him. I remember being really impressed by Kylie because she just instinctively knew what to do.”

Dannii Minogue admits it is a ''great sadness'' for herself and sister Kylie that her famous older sibling has never had children. Dannii is now in a relationship with producer Adrian Newman and though she and 48 -year-old Kylie - who previously battled breast cancer - have been through tough times in the past, things are good now and they know they can always rely on one another for support.

“It’s a great sadness for her, it’s a great sadness for me and it’s also made me really understand how blessed I was to be a mother,” Dannii said, adding Kylie is a fantastic aunt to her six-year-old son, Ethan, who she had with former partner Kris Smith.

“Kylie has been incredible with Ethan. She just loves him – I love to see them together.”

Naturally, Kylie expressed her feelings the best way she knows how - through music.

“Kylie wrote a song called Flower about how she feels about motherhood. It’s so beautiful it makes me cry. But you just don’t know what is going to happen in life.”

The subject of children has always been a touchy subject for Kylie; in the past admitting to Daily Mail she'd accepted she would probably never be a mum. 

"I don't know how many more times I can say, if it happens, it happens. But I think maybe part of this frame of mind I'm in, trying to be calm and accepting and at peace with where I am, is really acknowledging that it just might not be written on the pages for me. You can't have everything, so I'd rather just focus on what I have instead of what I don't have."
