This question "Why didn't the Clone Troopers have their sex drives removed or suppressed?" mentions that the clones still have their sex drive.

But the clone, Cut Lawquane, mentioned in the text only adopted children, he didn't actually father them. If the clones were able to produce children they might have more cause to abandon the clone wars.

Could the clones reproduce the old fashioned way, or were they deliberately sterilized?

  • I'm not sure if the topic is ever covered in canon, but I would think it is safe to assume that if he only had adopted children with his wife he was sterile. In addition it is important to note that by having his children only be adopted the writers (whether on purpose or otherwise) left the option for clones to be sterile or not in future works... – Odin1806 Jan 14 '18 at 2:07
  • It seems possible his wife already had children with another father, and he just rolled with it. That happens in real life with non-sterile men. – Mark Rogers Jan 14 '18 at 2:14
  • True; I just mean that if they had not had any children together it likely was not possible. "Tradition" of marriage dictates that you should have your first child approx. nine months after the wedding/honeymoon... consummating the marriage and all that. It is possible that she was incapable of having kids, or whatever, but as I mentioned the writers left that door open for either case by only saying his kids were adopted. It is possible they had not been successful up to that point or that he was sterile. Both options are possible from the given information... – Odin1806 Jan 14 '18 at 3:57
  • @Odin1806 - The “tradition” of marriage in certain cultures on Earth? ;) We’re dealing with a galaxy far, far away here. – Adamant Jan 14 '18 at 4:13
  • Ouch downvote, seems like a fair question? – Mark Rogers Jan 14 '18 at 6:04

In Legends they could. Venku Skirata was the son of Darman Skirata (aka RC-1136).

Venku Skirata, also known to family and close friends as Kad Skirata, was the Force-sensitive Human male who was the son of the clone commando, RC-1136 a.k.a Darman, and the Jedi Knight Etain Tur-Mukan, and thus a biological nephew of Boba Fett.

Also, Connor Freeman was the son of a clone deserter.

There's nothing in canon indicating any clones had biological children

    While we’re not sure if it’s his child, a clone deserter discovered by 5s has a child that 5s helps him protect against Commando droids. – Edlothiad Jan 14 '18 at 15:13
