Fast & Furious 6 star Jordana Brewster and husband Andrew Form recently welcomed a baby boy. According to People, the couple had their son Julian via a surrogate. And they’re not done yet: They hope to add another child to their family someday. “I definitely want to have kids. I want two. I grew up with a sister, but I know Andrew would love boys. I’ll take what I can get,” the new mom said earlier this year.
What are some advantages of using a surrogate to have a child?
Using a surrogate to have a child is a great option for couples who want to have a baby but aren’t able or ready to go through a pregnancy on their own. So what are some of the advantages of surrogacy? Here’s what Cupid thinks:
1. You won’t have to change your lifestyle: Does your career require that you be in tip-top shape? Or maybe you want to continue your fast-paced schedule until the baby arrives. Using a surrogate gives you another option besides adoption if you and your partner are having trouble getting pregnant or simply don’t want to slow down quite yet.
2. You can still have a biological child: If you are having trouble conceiving naturally, using a surrogate allows you to be genetically-related to your child. It’s a great alternative to adoption.
3. It allows same-gender couples to have a child: If you are in a same-gender relationship and are ready to have a baby with your partner, this is a great option for you to expand your family.
