Debbie Reynolds just knew husband Richard Hamlett would make some beautiful babies – not with her, but with her daughter Carrie Fisher!
At the December 7 Hollywood premiere of "Wishful Drinking," the HBO film based on Fisher's autobiographical one-woman show, movie legend Reynolds admitted to CNN that she once suggested that Hamlett and the "Star Wars" star should have a child together.
"He was very attractive and he had blue eyes, and I thought it would work out," Reynolds tells CNN of husband number three, whom she was married to from 1984-1996. "[Carrie] was so young!"
"And my womb was free," adds 54-year-old Fisher, whose father, entertainer Eddie Fisher, died in September. "[But] she didn't think insemination involved anything below the waist. [She] thought they injected sperm in the upper arm - which is a great place for sperm, by the way, if you've got some extra. Just rub it on the upper arm."
The 78-year-old mother of two pleads guilty to her naïveté. "I just thought you put a needle in and then you put it in her arm, and there you have a little baby," says Reynolds. "What did I know?”
