Surrogacy Journey Of Celebrities
The process of surrogacy is not the most convenient solution to infertility available, but couples who are determined to have their own children still prefer it. Let’s take a look at several celebrities who have enlisted surrogacy services and are content 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 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.
Also in 2011, Robert De Niro and wife Grace Hightower had a baby girl through surrogacy.
These are just a few of the well-known people who opted for surrogacy as the means 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.
Surrogacy has opened a unique window of promise and hope. 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.
