'A beautiful miracle': Rebel Wilson welcomes first baby girl via surrogate
Rebel Wilson, 42, while sharing a post along with a picture on Instagram said she was 'beyond proud'
LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: Rebel Wilson announced the birth of her first child, a baby girl Royce Lillian, who was born last week via surrogate. The 42-year-old Australian actress shared a post on her Instagram on Monday, November 7 with a picture of her newborn baby and said that she was "beyond proud."
The baby girl in the picture was seen wearing a light pink onesie with unicorn socks, as her mother gushed about how proud she was to join the "Mums club." "Its a beautiful miracle!" the 'Pitch Perfect' actress wrote in reference to her child, adding, that she can't describe her love for her. All praise for the surrogate who carried Royce, Wilson said she particularly wanted to thank her "gorgeous surrogate who carried her and birthed her with such grace and care," reported NBC News.
Her Instagram post read, "Beyond proud to announce the birth of my first child, Royce Lillian, born this past week via surrogate 💗 I can’t even describe the love I have for her, she’s a beautiful miracle! I am forever grateful to everyone who has been involved, (you know who you are), this has been years in the making…but particularly wanted to thank my gorgeous surrogate who carried her and birthed her with such grace and care. Thank you for helping me start my own family, it’s an amazing gift. The BEST gift!! I am ready to give little Roycie all the love imaginable. I am learning quickly…much respect to all the Mums out there! Proud to be in your club. 💗💗💗"
Wilson told People in May that she lost weight in 2020 in hopes of becoming a mother because a fertility doctor had told her she would have a better chance of harvesting her eggs if she dropped some pounds, as reported by the Daily Mail.
Wilson's announcement of the birth of her baby comes just a few days after she denied speculations that she and her girlfriend Ramona Agruma were engaged.
In June, the 'Jojo Rabbit' star came out as a gay on Instagram along with a photo of herself and Agruma, an entrepreneur, after her shocking split from Jacob Busch in 2021. In the caption of the post, the actress gushed, "I thought I was searching for a Disney Prince… but maybe what I really needed all this time was a Disney Princess."
