The number of ways in which people can get children has increased significantly in the recent past. This means besides getting children through the natural way it is now possible to use other methods to get children. The main reason behind this is technological and scientific advancement.
One of the modern ways of getting children is by using surrogates. A couple can go to an Egg Donor and Surrogacy Institute in California for surrogate. This particular method has become popular especially among celebrity couples. Some of the primary reasons why such couples might choose this particular option include:
- Inability to conceive in the natural way
- Having a lot of work related commitment
- One of the partners having underlying health issues
- Being in a same sex relationship
Here are celebrity couples who used surrogates to get their children:
Kim Kardashian West and Kanye West
This particular couple already had two other children before opting to use a surrogate to get the third child. The main reason that made the couple choose to use a surrogate is that Kim had complications during her first two pregnancies.
So when the couple decided to get a third child they opted to use a surrogate to avoid the complications. The entire process was on public domain especially considering the amount of publicity the couple gets and this encouraged more couples to use surrogates.
Angela Bassett and Courtney B. Vance
This is another couple that used a surrogate to get their twins. The couple has struggled with infertility for a prolonged period. When they realized that they will not get children in the natural way they tried to look for options from friends and from health experts. After exploring the available options they decided to settle for a surrogate and in 2006 they were blessed with twins.
Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban
This celebrity couple has two children where they used a surrogate to get the second child. Nicole delivered the first child in a natural manner but after discussing with her husband they decided to use a surrogate to get the second child. The couple also has two more children who Nicole had adopted with her former husband. Because of this she says that she is a mother who has experienced different types of motherhood.
Elton John and David Furnish
This particular celebrity always had the dream of becoming parents but the nature of their relationship stood in the way. But after consultations they decided to use a surrogate and they were blessed with two sons. The couple used the same surrogate for both pregnancies and after the sons were born they now consider the surrogate to be part of their family. Elton and David are responsible of bringing up their sons but the surrogate is always welcome to visit the family.
Elizabeth Banks and Max Handelman
This couple had also tried conceiving in the natural way for some time before deciding to use a surrogate. Currently the couple has two children both of whom were born through surrogates. Banks explained that doctors advised her that embryos were unable to implant in her womb. This meant that she would not be able to carry a pregnancy in the natural way. But since the couple always wanted to get children they opted to use a surrogate.
Therefore, celebrity couples who used surrogates did so because of various reasons and this has encouraged even more couples to use surrogates.
