Michael Jackson already had two children - Prince Michael I and Paris - with his ex-wife, Debbie Rowe. According to a friend of the late singer, "Michael wanted a designer baby. He had two wonderful children but wanted one more and was quite specific on the gene pool he wanted to tap into." Multiple women offered to mother the star's child, before he settled on Helena as she was, as he thought, perfect.

The same source spoke to British tabloid 'The Daily Mirror', stating: "He chose Helena because she had a Latino background but she was also a US citizen and had quite fair skin. He liked her because she was very attractive and seemed stable and intelligent. She was a nurse or medical assistant, which he also liked." This was counteracted when an unnamed egg donor was used, meaning that 'Blanket' would not receive any physical attributes from Helena. 'Blanket' was born on 21st February, 2002, in a San Diego hospital. As soon as the egg donor had signed over her legal rights to the child, Jackson had him taken immediately to Neverland (his estate).
