'Make me pregnant' ad ends in mistaken identity drama

Elena Komleva is perplexed: the Canadian’s social media accounts have been inundated with attention after newspapers mistook for a Russian woman with the same name- unfortunately, her Russian counterpart had turned up in the news for placing an ad seeking a man to impregnate her. After the initial report, other newspapers lifted the wrong Elena’s photos off her social media channels to illustrate their stories, according to CTV News.
Stop the nagging!
Russian Elena had apparently taken out the ad seeking a potential baby-maker to stop her mom from nagging her for grandchildren. She invited men to reply and said that her mom would select the winner.
That is quite unusual, but even more so for Canadian Elena who suddenly noticed that her YouTube videos were being shared widely. Then she got a message from a man who offered to make her pregnant. This prompted her to do an online search of her name, which led her to the initial report about the other Elena.
She says that many news outlets then trawled her Instagram and Facebook accounts for images and used them in their stories without confirming her identity. The 23-year-old student is concerned that people may think that she’s desperate to get pregnant when she says that she’d never do such a thing unless she was in a relationship.

Canadian Elena has subsequently uploaded a video to YouTube in which she says she IS looking for the “perfect soul-mate”…
