It’s not uncommon for nannies to become one of the family, but one New York mother took that notion a bit too far.
The wife of a New York City financier who was having trouble having a baby offered her 25-year-old English $30,000 for her eggs, the New York Post reports.
The nanny, who the Post referred to using the pseudonym “Elizabeth” due to a nondisclosure agreement she signed with the family, made $100,000 a year and was accustomed to the family’s demanding tasks. But this request pushed her limits. The mother, according to the Post, expected the nanny to continue working for the family and raise what would have been her own child.
“They often act as if they own you,” the now 31-year-old nanny told the Post. Jarred by the sensitive proposition, the nanny left the family shortly thereafter and found another job as a nanny.
