Surrogate Mothers: A New Path to Parenthood Gaining Popularity

From our friends at!

Colombian actress Sofía Vergara is a rising star and doesn’t want anything to get in the way of her success. However, on the personal front, Vergara and her fiancé want a baby! And yet Vergara, who already has a 21-year old son, won’t let a pregnancy interfere with her work on the popular sit-com Modern Family. According to the New York Post, for her, as for many others, surrogacy is the way to go. It seems like the baby would be biologically conceived by Vergara and fiancé Loeb, although the Colombian actress has chosen to have a close friend carry the pregnancy.

Vergara joins a long list of celebrities who have used surrogate mothers to have children.

    Not carry your baby because of your show??? How lame…there is no better bond than to carry and deliver your own baby. Having my baby grow inside of me were the most special and unforgettable moments of my life.

      Why does it matter who carries the baby as long as it’s loved and provided for once born? Are you saying people who adopt babies won’t be able to bond with them bc they didn’t carry them?

      She’s carried her own baby before- I’m sure she knows how special the experience is. Now she has the option not to. I don’t see what’s wrong with it. As long as the baby is loved, it doesn’t matter.

    Most of the celebs that I have heard about using surrogates have used them for reasons such as infertility or their inability to carry a child of their own. This is the first case that I have heard of where the mother has chosen surrogacy simply because she doesn’t want to take a break from working. I’m not sure what to think about that. Is it selfishness, laziness, vanity? Whatever it is, in my opinion I would never choose to use a surrogate just so I didn’t have to stop filming my television show.
    I guess that’s why they say to each their own.

    This being a choice of hers and not her only option, it seems so unnatural and wrong on so many levels.

    It is illegal and unethical for a doctor to let a surrogate or gestational carrier be used if there isn’t a medical need.

    I wonder what her child will think some day when they discover the reason behind her choice of surrogacy. I know I wouldn’t be too happy.

    that just proves that money can buy you everything, babies, houses, jewlery, girlfriends, organs… lives?

    she’s old and she doesn’t want to bust up her body. she basically said as much in an interview not too long ago.

    I really don’t see the big deal. I think can have a baby any way you see fit, provided you’re not hurting anyone else. People get on the Duggars’ case for having to many naturally, now we wanna get on Sofia for creating a family that works for her? If she likes it, I love it. I don’t see how the baby would care either way, if it’s loved.
