Biggs stores baby's cells to save a life.

Byline: SAM HAMILTON

AMERICAN Pie star Jason Biggs has decided to store his newborn son's stem cells in the hope it will save a life in the future.

The US actor, 35, and actress wife Jenny Mollen's son Sid was born on February 15.

And Jason revealed they have teamed up with medics at the Cryo-Cell blood bank to store the umbilical cord blood from the birth.

He said: "We may joke a lot but all kidding aside, when we learned the facts about how stem cells from cord blood and cord tissue can be used to possibly save lives, hell yeah we stored.

"And knowing our baby's stem cells might be used for our whole family made the decision that much easier.

"We hope we never have to use them but it is a definite relief to know it's there and stored safe."
