With seven children between them, singer Sara Evans and her husband Jay Barker already have a very full house. But the Stronger crooner reveals that she hopes to add at least one more baby to the mix in the near future.
“We want a baby together so bad,” Sara, 40, recently told Chicago radio station US 99.5.
Though she’d love another child, Sara admits she’d prefer not to go through another pregnancy: “I just have to figure out the right time because I despise pregnancy. I’m begging Jay to let us hire a surrogate, but he’s not comfortable with that.”
If they do go the surrogacy route, Sara she’d feel better going with someone close to them instead of hiring a stranger to carry the baby.
“If I did it, I would want it to be somebody I knew, like one of my sisters. I would want it to be a friend, or a sister, that I knew I could trust, and that they wouldn’t run off with my baby,” she says.
Her husband may not be on board just yet, but Sara already has a surrogate – or two – in mind! “I wanted one of my sisters to do it. They’re great. They’re wonderful, healthy, beautiful young women. They were both, when I mentioned it, like, ‘Oh, that’s so weird, no way, I would never …'” Sara says, but adds, “I said, ‘I’ll give you 20 grand,’ and they started fighting over who was going to get to do it! So then I said, ‘Why don’t you both do it and then Jay and I can have two children … that would be hysterical. And then I could continue to drink wine, stay skinny, have fun, and also have this beautiful baby.”
