American Horror Story actress Sarah Paulson is going to welcome a baby with her 73-year-old girlfriend, Holland Taylor. Find out when the couple is planning on starting their new family.
Radar Online reported that the Two and a Half Men actress Holland Taylor and the American Horror Story star are planning to start a family together next year.
“Sarah’s finally talking about slowing down and settling in to start a family with Holland.”
Paulson and Holland confirmed their relationship last March.

“They both still have their own houses in L.A., but they live together and are committed to each other long term.”
The two women would like to start their family sooner rather than later and are considering using a sperm donor.
“For Sarah, it’s now or never. They’ve ruled out adoption and are leaning toward the idea of a sperm donor and surrogate.”
According to the reports, Sarah Paulson will assume responsibility for the child as their mother, while Taylor will be there to fully support her girlfriend but not necessarily be in charge of parenting.
Sarah Paulson, 41, and Holland Taylor, 73, have been criticized for their significant age difference, but Sarah has never desired a traditional family.
“Getting into a traditional marriage has never been a priority for Sarah, and she’s only just now coming out of a period where she put her career first for years and years.”
Now that Sarah Paulson has won an Emmy, she feels she can focus on settling down and having a child.
Paulson won an Emmy this year for her role as Marcia Clark in the FX true crime series The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story. Among her other credits is the series Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip, Jack & Jill, and the Oscar-winning film 12 Years a Slave.
“Her Emmy is a milestone, and winning it reminds her she finally has some breathing room to settle down and start a family plan.”
Fellow American Horror Story star Emma Roberts recently sold Paulson her home in Hollywood Hills West for $1.65 million, according to the Los Angeles Times. The deal was reportedly completely off-market.
The single-story home was built on a flat lot overlooking the Kirkwood Bowl. Is this is the home Paulson plans to welcome her new baby in?
The home is complete with a living room, media room, three bedrooms, three and a half bathrooms, modern kitchen, and an open dining area with a fireplace.
A few days ago, on Halloween, American Horror Story creator Ryan Murphy tweeted out to his fans that Sarah Paulson would be returning to this season of the series, AHS: Roanoke, as a reprise of her role on American Horror Story: Asylum, Lana Winters.

This is not the first time that Sarah Paulson has done double duty on the series. Last season on American Horror Story: Hotel, Paulson played both Sally and her American Horror Story: Murder House character Billie Dean Howard.
Paulson’s Asylum character, Lana Winters, was a journalist investigating the Briarcliff Insane Asylum. She was eventually imprisoned after too many run-ins with Sister Jude (Jessica Lang), but in the end, they both wind up getting committed to the asylum.
Winters eventually escaped Briarcliff and the “Bloody Face” killer. She later appeared in 2013 when she was in her 70s. She killed her son (Dylan McDermott), who was the result of Bloody Face raping her.
Paulson called Lana Winters her favorite American Horror Story role in an interview with E! News.
“The show really felt…really focused on Lana’s story and her journey. I felt very connected to it. Because this show is a miniseries and has a beginning, a middle and an end to it, when it was time to say goodbye, it was really saying goodbye. I knew even though I was going to do the show next year, I knew I wasn’t going to be playing that character and I would never play her again and it was over forever and ever.”
After this year, will Sarah Paulson slow down her career a bit in order to make time for a family? Let us know what you think in the comment section below.
