12 celebrities who became parents through surrogacy

When people reach a certain age, it is perfectly normal and natural to want to have a family of your own and settle down. Unfortunately, not all women are lucky enough to be able to get pregnant and some couples are not able to have a kid no matter how hard they try. In these situations where the couple wants to get pregnant and cannot, they tend to resort to other methods to fulfill their desire to have kids. Surrogacy is one such method which a lot of people resort to.
