The couple said they partnered with Fairfax Cryobank to help one of their followers “grow (their) family” by offering the winner “credit” for a vial of sperm at the sperm bank. The winner gets to choose the donor.

To win, users have to be following both the Fairfax Cryobank and their joint Instagram account, “like” the giveaway announcement post, and tag friends in the comments section.

The post garnered thousands of mostly positive comments. “Imagine telling a child that they came from an Instagram giveaway,” one commenter wrote, before clarifying they were not being hateful toward the couple.

The Nova Scotia influencers’ Instagram post was eventually reposted to Twitter, where it went even more viral and raised a few eyebrows.

“This is one of the funniest things I’ve seen social media used for ever, in my entire life, and I feel like no one’s appreciating the pure divine comedy that is an INSTAGRAM GIVEAWAY RESULTING IN NEW HUMAN LIFE,” one user tweeted.

Many, however, defended them, reminding jokesters about how expensive in vitro fertilization is. “Sperm is expensive. And you don’t get to judge how people start a family,” one user said.
