The Stars And Their Surrogacy Stories
These days, many couples are choosing surrogacy as a means to have a family. This includes celebrities, who have enlisted the help of surrogacy services and who were and are delighted with the outcomes.
In 2002, Michael Jackson had Prince Michael “Blanket” Jackson II by personally choosing a nurse to carry his son. Jackson had donated his sperm and carefully selected a donor egg to match the qualities he had chosen.
In 2009, Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick decided to work with a surrogate. After Parker’s first pregnancy, she found that getting pregnant again had become a challenge. In an interview with Billy Bush, she said that she wouldn’t have opted for surrogacy if she could have gotten pregnant herself. Now they have twins, Marion Loretta Elwell and Tabitha Hodge.
In 2010, Chris Daughtry and wife Deanna had twins, Adalynn and Noah, through a surrogate. They opted for gestational surrogacy because Daughtry’s wife had a partial hysterectomy in 2006 and was unable to bear a child.
Surrogacy is not the easiest, most convenient option to address infertility, but those who are committed to investing work and time into having their own child often choose this process.
Surrogacy opens a fresh window of promise. It enables couples with fertility concerns to have children of their own. Same-sex partners, married in legal and binding laws, are now able to have a family. Women with severe medical problems and who are not able to get pregnant are given the chance to become mothers. Also, older women above the age of 42 can still have babies of their own.
These are just a few accounts of famous people who decided on surrogacy to have children of their own. Even with the ongoing debate over surrogacy on legal and moral grounds, there is no denying that the process has helped a lot of couples find happiness that money alone can’t buy.
