The latest paramour of ex-Google CEO billionaire Eric Schmidt has reportedly frozen her eggs and asked the tech boss to fertilize them with the hopes of starting a family together, but he declined.
The 64-year-old tech boss, who is worth $13.3billion, has been married to his wife Wendy for 39 years yet has been known to date outside of his marriage.
He was last tied to Alexandra Duisberg, a 32-year-old medical school graduate, after he gave her a 10-carat pink sapphire ring during a whirlwind trip to Greenland – and she claims they’re ready to have children.
‘She said they were going to have five kids together and they have frozen embryos,’ an insider of Duisberg tells
However, another source close to Schmidt and Duisberg clarified that she only has frozen eggs, not embryos, and when she asked her billionaire beau to fertilize them, he refused.

The difference between frozen eggs and embryos is that eggs are unfertilized and embryos have begun the earliest stages of pregnancy development.
Schmidt has been married to wife Wendy since 1980 and the two do not comment on their relationship and his affairs.
But a source close to Schmidt says starting a new marriage or a new family is not in the cards for the tech genius.
‘It was a stupid thing that he did,’ the source said on Duisberg’s gift. ‘It was a friendship ring. It was not an engagement ring . . . Sometimes he treats people too well and it leads to [misunderstandings].’
When he made headlines last month upon giving Duisberg the precious ring a friend said: ‘Eric has been spending time with Alexandra, and he gave her a friendship ring. While this may have sparked some excitement and rumors, it is not an engagement ring.’
The source added that Schmidt ‘did not propose, and they are not engaged’ in a bid to squash any wedding rumors.
The two reportedly met at a party in 2017 and have been seemingly inseparable since.
Duisberg was born in Guatemala and her parents worked for the US government. She trained to be an Olympic figure skater and after suffering an injury began switched career paths and entered medical school at the University of Pennsylvania.
She started her residency at Stanford in 2018 but left after less than a year for a ‘sabbatical to focus on her philanthropic efforts and global health work’, as per a friend.
Ever since, she’s been seen at Schmidt’s arm at public events over the past two years.
‘She said they were going to have five kids together and they have frozen embryos. She said they are going to have kids whether he and his wife are divorced or not,’ a source close to Duisberg said. Another source said she has frozen eggs, not embryos, and when she asked Schmidt to fertilize them, he declined. Duisberg pictured at Paris Fashion Week in 2019

Schmidt – who is worth $13.3billion – has been dubbed ‘New York’s hottest bachelor’ amid claims he’s ‘dating a lot of women’ despite the fact he is still married
Her ex Ben Fink Shapiro hailed her ‘as smart as they get. I remember being in a taxi with her and she was speaking Urdu with the cabdriver’.
‘She was always traveling around the world. It would be from Art Basel Miami to a yacht in Greece to a yacht in Italy to New Year’s in Tulum,’ Fink Shapiro said.
An ex-flame of Schmidt’s told the outlet that it’s unlikely the tech powerhouse is interested in settling down.
‘I think there are a lot of women who date him who think they are going to be the next Mrs. Schmidt,’ the anonymous woman stated.
‘But he dates a lot of women. He likes to have a ship in every port.’
The remark has led the publication to dub Schmidt ‘New York City’s hottest bachelor’.
A 2012 New York Times article stated that Schmidt and his wife Wendy often spend time apart, and the pair do not comment publicly about their relationship .
Despite being legally married to Wendy, Schmidt has reportedly had relationships with a series of younger women. He is pictured with wife Wendy in 2016
Despite being legally married to Wendy, Schmidt has reportedly had relationships with a series of younger women, including a vivacious television host who dubbed him ‘Dr Strangelove,’ a public relations executive and a Vietnamese concert pianist.
In the past, Schmidt had been linked to Lisa Shields, a foreign relations executive and Vietnamese pianist Chau-Giang Thi Nguyen.
Meanwhile, Wendy reportedly resides at one of their homes, a $23million waterfront mansion on Nantucket Island, Massachusetts, where she focuses on her philanthropic work.
TV personality Kate Bohner, aged 52, allegedly had a three-year affair with the married mogul from 2007 to 2010.
At the time, Schmidt was at the height of his power. He was brought in as Google’s CEO in 2001 by creators Sergey Brin and Larry Page, who relied on his expertise to turn their modest internet search engine into a global media powerhouse.
