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.

Anderson Cooper

Cooper welcomed his son, Wyatt-who is named after the journalist’s father — on April 27, 2020 via surrogate.

“As a gay kid, I never thought it would be possible to have a child, and I’m grateful for all those who have paved the way, and for the doctors and nurses and everyone involved in my son’s birth.”

“Most of all, I am grateful to a remarkable surrogate who carried Wyatt, and watched over him lovingly, and tenderly, and gave birth to him.”

“It is an extraordinary blessing – what she, and all surrogates give to families who can’t 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.”

Kanye and Kim Kardashian West

Kanye West and wife Kim Kardashian West hired a surrogate to carry their third child, Chicago, and did it again for baby No. 4.

“We are incredibly grateful to our surrogate who made our dreams come true with the greatest gift one could give and to our wonderful doctors and nurses for their special care.”

Andy Cohen

On the Dec. 20 episode of Bravo’s Watch What Happens Live, the executive producer and host, 50, revealed he’s expecting his first child via surrogate.

“Family means everything to me and having one of my own is something that I have wanted in my heart for my entire life.”

“When I was growing up, and when we were growing up … I just never thought it would be possible as a gay man to grow up and have a family.”

“And here we are in 2018, almost ‘19, and anything’s possible. And I’m so grateful to a wonderful surrogate that I’m working with.”

Gabrielle Union and Dwyane Wade

The actress and her NBA star husband welcomed their first childtogether, daughter Kaavia James, via surrogate on Nov. 7, 2018. The couple shared family photos in the hospital on Instagram.

“We are sleepless and delirious but so excited to share that our miracle baby arrived last night via surrogate and 11/7 will forever be etched in our hearts as the most loveliest of all the lovely days.”

Gach Gilford

The former Friday Night Lights actor and his wife, Kingdom actress Kiele Sanchez, welcomed daughter Zeppelin Adele via surrogate in November 2017.

“It’s been a long, painful journey for us.”

“Zeppelin is the light of our lives.”

Fredrik Eklund

Million Dollar Listing New York real estate broker Fredrik Eklund and his husband Derek Kaplan are over the moon about twins Milla and Fredrik Jr., whom they welcomed on Nov. 28, 2017, after their surrogate suffered multiple miscarriages previously.

“So thankful… most of all to our surrogate, she’s become family through this.”

“At night I put my hand on her stomach and feel Milla and Fredrick kicking & we can’t wait to finally welcome them home….”

Shaun T

Celebrity fitness expert Shaun T and husband Scott Blokker made sure to give huge shout-outs to their surrogate Ashley, who attended the baby shower for their twin sons Sander Vaughn and Silas Rhys and brought her own children to meet the babies three weeks after their premature birth at 32 weeks gestation.

“Ashley, her husband Michael and their children are such selfless people and no words can describe our appreciation for them helping us build our family!”

“You are courageous, strong, empowered, driven, powerful, dedicated, and such an amazing human! SO THANK YOU for being everything we needed and more.”
