Imagine being an Aussie influencer and being recognised by fans. It may sound rewarding but what if you were approached by a super fan at a SPERM BANK!

Studio 10’s Joe Hildebrand recalled the embarrassing moment he was recognised by a fan while visiting a sperm clinic.

The 43-year-old was at the clinic to pick up a ‘take-home test kit’ to ensure his medical procedure had been a success.

“The woman named Marla… she hands over the stuff,” he told his Studio 10 co-stars.

“[She said], ‘Oh, by the way, I’m a big fan of the show.'”

Panelist Sarah Harris interjected: “She thought he was Sam Mac. She asked ‘Are you the funny one from Seven?'”

He added, “When you have someone saying, ‘Hi, how are you?’ While you’re holding an actual sperm jar in your hand…’


“Don’t complain to me about your privacy!”

The news comes after Hildebrand revealed that he had undergone a vasectomy, three months after welcoming his youngest daughter, Maybellene.

Joe and his wife Tara share three children, son Henry (5), and two daughters, Bonnie (2) and four-month-old (4 months).
