A Quick Look At Celebrities and Surrogacy
Nowadays, many couples are choosing surrogacy as a means to obtain a family. Gestational surrogacy has become a source of hope for parents going through the aches of infertility. Although surrogacy is a source of much political and social discussion, there’s no preventing these parents from going through with it. Ninety percent of them are happy with the outcomes. The other 10 percent had either not researched the approach or had questions about the surrogate they considered.
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 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.
