When our kids hit adulthood, it's perfectly normal for us moms to start fantasizing about becoming grandmothers. By the time our kids are grown, it's been eons since we've been able to seriously spoil a little one. And who among us doesn't want a piece of the grandma pie? -- all the baby cuddling and loving without losing any sleep!
So sure, we might catch ourselves dropping subtle hints to our married kids -- "You know, I'm not going to be around forever ..."
One mother, however, seriously lost her mind with grandma lust. She decided she wanted to be a grandparent so badly she was willing to hire a man to rape her daughter in hopes that the attack would result in a pregnancy -- a grandbaby. Say it with me -- WTF???
Well, thank God, the 51-year-old South African mother and the hired rapist have both been arrested. Unfortunately, they were both arrested too late. The 24-year-old daughter of the woman was raped by the hired "hit man" in her home on Sunday.
A police spokesman said:
This young woman was raped and it appears her attacker had been set up to commit the crime by her own mother. [The mother] was desperate to be a grandmother but her daughter was not showing any signs of wanting a baby. That is when she decided to arrange for a man to make her pregnant against her wishes.
It is too early to know whether or not a pregnancy has resulted from this attack, and who knows how a forced pregnancy might further emotionally damage the young woman? My heart breaks for this woman who has been damaged three-fold: by her mother, by a rapist, and possibly by a pregnancy she did not choose.
Obviously, I cannot imagine ever ever ever being so desperate to become a grandmother that I would have my own daughter physically and emotionally assaulted in this way. It's atrocious. It's not even self-centered as much as it's completely and certifiably insane.
Can you believe a mother plotted this horrific crime against her own child?
