Surrogacy is common in Hollywood, as evidenced by Anderson Cooper, Andy Cohen and these other celebs who’ve had their children carried by another person.

Kristen Wiig & Avi Rothman

The Bridesmaids star and her fiancé Rothman are proud new parents!

The couple welcomed twins in early 2020 via a surrogate.

The two were first spotted on vacation in Kauai, Hawaii, holding hands and kissing in May 2016. At the time, a source said, “They’ve been secretly dating for a few months,” adding that, “They’re really happy together.”

Wiig was previously married to actor Hayes Hargrove from 2005-09.

Katey Sagal

Ricky Martin is dad to twin boys Matteo and Valentino, born to a surrogate mother in August 2008.

Former Married…with Children star Katey Sagal calls daughter Esmé Louise a “beautiful miracle.”

“We went through the whole in vitro fertilization process and our embryos were not really strong, but we thought, ‘Let’s give it a shot and if it’s meant to be, it’s meant to be,’ ” the actress — who is also mom to adult kids Jackson and Sarah said.

Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban

Country star Keith Urban and his Oscar-winning actress wife Nicole Kidman have two daughters together: Sunday Rose, whom Kidman delivered, and Faith Margaret, who was born to a surrogate.

“I would have liked probably two or three more children,” Kidman said in January (she is also mom to Isabella and Connor whom she adopted with ex-husband Tom Cruise).

“I love, love children. I love raising children … they make me feel good and I love being around and I love the ups and downs, and I love watching them grow and the things they say and teach,” Kidman added.

Tom Ford 

“If I have a child, you won’t notice that I had a child. Maybe you’ll see it when it’s 18, but I will keep it out of the spotlight,” designer Tom Ford told Time Out Hong Kong in 2011 — the year before he and husband Richard Buckley welcomed their son Alexander John reportedly via surrogate.


“It just seemed like the right option for me because I was working and I didn’t know when I was going to be able to stop,” Elementary actress Lucy Liu said in 2016 of why she chose a surrogate to carry son Rockwell Lloyd.

“I decided that was probably the best solution for me, and it turned out to be great,” explained the single mom.


Hollywood vet Robert De Niro is a dad of six, with half of his children — daughter Helen Graceand twin sons Julian Henry and Aaron Kendrick — born to surrogates.


Television screenwriter, producer and director Ryan Murphy and his husband David Miller are parents to two sons. Ford and Logan Phineas were both born via surrogate.

“It’s amazing to be two dads and we have a wonderful surrogate,” Murphy told E! News in 2014. “It’s so uplifting and I’ve enjoyed sharing our story with young gay families.”


The Bachelor season 12 winner Shayne Lamas gave birth to her and husband Nik Richie’s daughter Press Dahl, but used in vitro fertilization and a very special surrogate for their son Lyon: her stepmother.

“I was shocked that my dad was on board with this, to be 100 percent honest,” Lamas told Closer Weekly in 2015 (the former reality star had suffered a scary miscarriage the previous year). “But I’ll always be grateful.”
