Debbie Reynolds wanted Carrie Fisher and husband to have babies

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?”

    Why is this even a story... it makes no sense and also just makes Debbie Reynolds look like a complete idiot. " 'I just thought you put a needle in and then you put it in her arm, and there you have a little baby.' " Wow is all i can say about this...

    People tell me I look like Carrie Fisher, when she was young and hot. Now, I'm embarrassed.

  4. Ummm....yeah

    Some stories aren't meant to be told Ms Reynolds and that most certainly is one of them!!!

    P.S. – how do you give birth yet not know how babies are made?
