Only in 'Meruca Cuban spy released as part of diplomacy pact was secretly allowed to impregnate wife while in U.S. prison , ringleader of the ‘Cuban Five’ spy ring who was released as part of last week’s agreement between Cuba and U.S. to normalize diplomatic ties, was secretly allowed to have his sperm sent back to Cuba so his wife could be artificially inseminated with his child. Diplomacy can be fertile. One of the Cuban spies released as part of last week’s groundbreaking agreement to normalize ties between the U.S. and the Communist nation was secretly allowed to impregnate his wife back in Cuba, according to a bombshell report. Gerardo Hernandez, the leader of a Cuban spy ring inside the U.S. who had been locked up in a California prison, was able to father a child with his wife back in Havana after secret talks between high-level U.S. and Cuban officials yielded a deal under which his sperm was quietly shipped back to his home country, CNN reported Monday. The 49-year-old Hernandez’s wife, Adriana Perez, was then artificially inseminated, allowing her to become pregnant and ending one of the largest and most bizarre mysteries in Cuba in recent memory. She is 42 or 43, the U.S. State Department said. "Everyone's asking, and we have had a lot of fun with the comments and speculations. The reality is, it had to be kept quiet," Hernandez, the purported leader of the so-called “Cuban Five,” told Cuba’s government-run television network upon his return home last week about his mysteriously impregnated wife.
