Surrogacy is an arrangement, often supported by a legal agreement, whereby a woman (the surrogate mother) agrees to bear a child for another person or persons, who will become the child's parent(s) after birth.

Celebrities such as Tyra Banks and Nicole Kidman are just a few of the celebrities who have used surrogacy to become parents.

Celebrities who have had children through surrogacy

1.Dwyane Wade and Gabrielle Union

Surprise! The actor and her basketball player husband had kept their pregnancy a secret, but on November 7, 2018, they welcomed their beautiful daughter (and first child together!) via surrogacy. Union shared some gorgeous photographs of them getting some nice skin-to-skin time on Instagram, but they haven't revealed the name of their baby girl. Union stated in her 2017 memoir that she had eight or nine miscarriages in three years, so we're thrilled to see her dream of being a mother finally come true!

2.Kanye West and Kim Kardashian

After having two bad pregnancies with her first two children, five-year-old North and three-year-old Saint, Kim and her rapper husband chose a surrogate to give birth to their now-one-year-old daughter Chicago. Kim had various issues during those pregnancies, including placenta accreta, a hazardous condition in which the placenta does not separate from the uterus after birth. Her physicians urged her not to get pregnant again after those events, stating it could be fatal for her and the baby, which is why they chose a surrogate. Kim confirmed on Twitter on May 10, 2019, that her fourth kid was likewise a boy.

He has my fingers and large eyes, as well as his father Erik's jaw and chin. We pray for everyone who is struggling to reach this joyful milestone as we appreciate the angel of a lady who carried our miracle baby boy for us.” Tyra has been open and honest about her infertility issues, including how IVF failed her.

It also protects her and everyone else in the situation.” “We needed a lot of Faith,” she stated when explaining their moniker decision.

6.Jimmy Fallon and his wife, Nancy Juvonen, have two daughters, Winnie Rose (born in July 2013) and Frances Cole (born in December 2014), but they didn't have an easy time becoming parents.
