Zsa Zsa Gabor's husband wants his 94-year-old wife to become a mother again using an egg donor, artificial insemination and a surrogate mother, Prince Frederic von Anhalt told CNN Thursday.
"I've gone through the initial steps of donor matching and blood work and next week the donation process will begin," von Anhalt said.
Gabor's only child, Francesca Hilton, described herself as shocked when told of the plan Thursday.
"That's just weird," Hilton said.
Von Anhalt, 67, said he is working with Dr. Mark Surry of the Southern California Reproductive Center in Beverly Hills. CNN calls to the center have not been returned.
Gabor has suffered major health problems in the last year, including hip replacement surgery and a leg amputation. She has been unable to walk since a 2002 car accident.
"I'm a retired guy," von Anhalt said. "I can take care of it."
Gabor talked about adding a new baby to the family when they got married 25 years ago, and she brought the topic up again in recent months, he said.
One reason is their desire to have someone carry on the famous Gabor name. None of her two sisters left an heir and her only child does not use the Gabor name, von Anhalt said.
