In large heatproof bowl, whisk together egg yolks, eggs, sugar and lemon juice. Set over saucepan of simmering water; cook, stirring constantly, until thickened enough to mound on spoon and space remains after spoon is drawn through, 10 to 12 minutes.

Strain through fine sieve into large bowl. Place plastic wrap directly on surface; refrigerate until cold, about 1 hour. Whip cream with vanilla; gently stir one-third into lemon mixture. Fold in remaining whipped cream mixture. (Make-ahead: Cover and refrigerate for up to 24 hours.)
