Celebrities and Surrogacy

Surrogacy: The Best Alternative

Along with the evolution of in-vitro fertilization (IVF), gestational surrogacy has become a solution for many partners going through the trials of infertility. While surrogacy is a primary element of a number of political and social debates, there’s no stopping those couples who have decided to go through with the process.

Surrogacy might not be the simplest way to have a baby, but those who are determined to have their own child may opt for it. Let’s take a look at celebrities who have gone through surrogacy services and are contented 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 2010, Chris Daughtry and wife Deanna had twins, Adalynn and Noah, through a surrogate. Daughtry’s wife had a partial hysterectomy in 2006 and was thus unable to bear a child. They opted for gestational surrogacy.

As another example, in 2011 Robert De Niro and wife Grace Hightower had a baby girl through surrogacy. De Niro also had twin sons via surrogacy with ex-girlfriend Toukie Smith.

These celebrities are just a few of the well-known people who selected surrogacy so that they could have children of their own. In spite of the continuous controversy over surrogacy’s moral and legal grounds, there is no doubt that surrogacy appeals to many parents, who use it to gain the satisfaction that money alone can’t buy.

Surrogacy creates a window of promise. It allows lovers with fertility difficulties to have a child of their own. Same-sex partners—married in legal and binding laws—now have the ability to create a family. Women with serious medical conditions who are not able to get pregnant are given the opportunity to become mothers. In fact, some women above the age of 42 can continue to have babies of their own. Given this, it’s no wonder that numerous couples are choosing surrogacy as a method for having their families.
