Widow has dead husband's child

A widow has given birth to her husband's child using sperm frozen and stored when he first discovered he had the cancer which killed him, it was reported last night.

Joanne Tarbuck, 29, gave birth to the baby, named Jonathan, last week - exactly three years after her husband, Martin, lost a long fight against bone cancer. He had signed a form giving permission for the sperm to be used, thereby removing the legal hurdle that has so far prevented Diane Blood from using sperm from her late husband to have a child.
