Get The Inside Scoop On Celebrities and Surrogacy
Surrogacy might not be the quickest and easiest answer to infertility, but those who are determined to have their own child still opt for the procedure. Let’s take a look at several celebrities who have gone through surrogacy services and who were and are satisfied with the results.
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 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 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.
In 2011, Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban went through a series of misfortunes while trying to have a second child. Kidman had an ectopic pregnancy, experienced miscarriages, and went through fertility treatments. Both Kidman and Urban wanted to have a second baby, so when everything else failed they saw hope in surrogacy. Now they have Faith Margaret and are happy with their decision.
These are just a few accounts of famous people who decided on surrogacy to have children of their own. Regardless of the continuing debate about surrogacy on moral and legal grounds, there is no denying that the practice has helped many parents experience the satisfaction that money alone can’t provide.
These days, many partners are choosing surrogacy as the method they use to have families. Gestational surrogacy has become the answer for a number of parents going through the pains of infertility. While surrogacy is a source of political and social debate, there’s no preventing these parents from going through with the procedure.
Surrogacy opens a fresh window of chance, letting partners with fertility problems have a child of their own.
