Celebs Who Used Surrogates to Become Parents

Reality TV star Kim Kardashian and her husband, rapper Kanye West, will welcome their third child later this year via surrogate. (Kardashian gave birth to their daughter North West, in June 2013, and their son Saint West, in December 2015.) The most famous Kardashian sister has been vocal about the couple’s decision to use a surrogate, telling Glamour on November 14, 2017, that it’s “so much harder” than past pregnancies.

“You know, it is really different,” she said. “Anyone that says or thinks it is just the easy way out is just completely wrong. I think it is so much harder to go through it this way, because you are not really in control. And, you know, obviously you pick someone that you completely trust and that you have a good bond and relationship with, but it is still…knowing that I was able to carry my first two babies and not, you know, my baby now, it’s hard for me. So it’s definitely a harder experience than I anticipated just in the control area.”


Of course, Kardashian isn’t the first one in Hollywood to enlist the help of a surrogate to become a parent. Plenty of other celebs, from Tyra Banks and Jimmy Fallon to Sarah Jessica Parker and Neil Patrick Harris, have relied on the generous help of surrogates, too.
