Former City Councilwoman Melinda Katz always wanted to be a mother, and did in recent years with in-vitro fertilization.
In 2008 the current GreenbergTraurig shareholder gave birth to her first son, Carter.
At that time she declined to discuss the identity of the sperm donor, but now Curtis Sliwa, the Guardian Angels founder, has revealed that he is the father of Carter, and her other son, Hunter, whom she gave birth to in 2010, according to the New York Post.
Katz and Sliwa met 19 years ago when Katz was running for the Assembly, and Sliwa had just been divorced from his wife of 12 years, Lisa Evers, now of Fox News.
They dated for two years, but decided the relationship was too high profile. In 1998 Katz asked Sliwa for a sperm donation, she told the Post, only as a friend, and after years of IVF she got pregnant.
Sliwa told Good Day New York that they never meant to hide his identity, but simply did not mention it to the public.
The couple now lives in Forest Hills with their two sons. They plan to marry.
The office of Karen Koslowitz, the current 29 District coucilwoman said, “I am very happy for them and wish them all the best.”
