Who Welcomed Children Via Surrogates

Pursuing surrogacy! Lance Bass and more celebrities have brought babies into the world with the help of gestational carriers.
The singer and Michael Turchin became parents to twins in October 2021 — but the couple spent three years trying to start their family.
The former ‘NSync member first told Us Weekly exclusively in March 2018 that he wanted a baby with his artist husband within the year, saying, “I don’t think anyone is really prepared to have kids. I think you just have to go with the flow. … We have tons of friends who have gone through the process. We’re interviewing everyone.”
In January of the following year, the Out of Sync author exclusively told Us that they were “on donor No. 7.”
The Mississippi native explained at the time: “I think we broke a record with how many donors we’ve gone through. But it’s looking like this next one is actually going to work. We’re being cautious.”
Bass told Us in March 2020 that the “heartbreaking” IVF attempt had not worked, explaining, “We have tons of friends that are doing IVF, and it was definitely consoling to know that they all went through the same thing we went through. It’s just disappointing. You work so hard for this, you get pregnant and weeks later, it doesn’t stick. But to know that some of your friends have gone through the same thing, you feel like you’re a part of this family. It just makes you feel a little more normal.”
The Dancing With the Stars alum felt that he and the Florida native had “reset” and were prepared to try again.
In June 2021, the pair announced via Instagram that they had a son and daughter on the way. “Coming soon,” the couple wrote at the time.
While awaiting their little ones, Bass exclusively told Us that their “10th donor was the one that worked.”
The ups and downs brought the actor and Turchin “closer together,” he added in August 2021. “I didn’t think that we could love each other more and have a bigger bond, but when you go through an experience of trying to start a family and it’s just not working, it could either tear you apart or bring you closer together. … It was quite the journey.”

“I am grateful to a remarkable surrogate who carried Wyatt and watched over him lovingly, and tenderly, and gave birth to him,” the CNN anchor captioned photos with his newborn son in April 2020. “It is an extraordinary blessing — what she, and all surrogates give to families who cant have children. My surrogate has a beautiful family of her own, a wonderfully supportive husband and kids, and I am incredibly thankful for all the support they have given Wyatt and me. My family is blessed to have this family in our lives.”
In February 2022, the CNN anchor announced the arrival of his second son with ex Benjamin Maisani via gestational carrier, gushing, “He mostly just sleeps and eats, and he certainly poops, but he already seems like a wise and thoughtful little chap.”

I hope we arrive at a point in which it’s normalized to not want a ring in order to have a crib,” Heard wrote at the time. “A part of me wants to uphold that my private life is none of anyone’s business. I also get that the nature of my job compels me to take control of this. My daughter was born on April 8, 2021. Her name is Oonagh Paige Heard. She’s the beginning of the rest of my life.”

Like, I should have had my baby’s room together a long time ago! I’m just judging it by when I see [my surrogate] … and I’m like, ‘Wow, OK.
