15 Celebrities Who Used Surrogate Moms
As a celebrity, a big part of the job is around appearance. A changing appearance can conflict with contracted jobs, like roles on a television series or as a character in a film. That being said, celebrities have a lot more resources to spend on other non-traditional avenues for having a child, such as using a surrogate. Many celeb moms have been open about their unique journey of becoming moms, whether it is IVF, adoption, surrogacy or the traditional route. Here are eleven different celebrities who used surrogate moms to bring their bundles of joy into the world. We didn’t think there would be so many!
15. Neil Patrick Harris and David Burtka
Neil Patrick Harris and his husband David Burtka have shared the lives of their twins Gideon and Harper right from the beginning, and have never been shy in discussing their experience with welcoming their twins through surrogacy. “We found an egg donor anonymously through a hilarious process of looking at people’s profiles and then found an amazing surrogate who had helped a same-sex couple before. And then we inserted two eggs, one with my sperm, one with David’s sperm and they both took,” Harris explained. He added that they never knew which twin was whose biologically because it really didn’t matter, they just couldn’t be any happier to be parents.
14. Jordana Brewster
The Fast and the Furious franchise star Jordana Brewster is another celebrity who has welcomed a child via surrogacy. Brewster and her husband Andrew Form welcomed their first son Julian via surrogate on September 10, 2013 and later welcomed a second son, Rowan, in June 2016 also via a surrogate. “Sometimes I feel a little left out when other moms talk about what their birth experience was like, and I feel the loss of not having carried or having been able to carry,” she said in a 2015 interview.
