“My life is finally complete 👶🏼💙” Paris Hilton posted on her Instagram. “It’s always been my dream to be a mother…” she told PEOPLE magazine. She later revealed why she chose a surrogate for the births of her two children.

Hilton stated her reason for choosing a Surrogate for their family journey was a very personal and private one, she recently shared in an interview with Romper “I just have so much PTSD from what I went through as a teenager,”…“If I’m in a doctor’s office, I get a shot, anything, I will literally have a panic attack and I can’t breathe,” she said. “I just knew that would not be healthy for me or the baby, growing inside of someone who has such high anxiety.” Due to past trauma Hilton felt it was safer to use a Surrogate to carry her and Reum’s children.

Paris and Husband, Carter, welcomed their first baby together, a boy, via surrogate. Confirmed on Jan. 24, 2023. More recently the couple announced that they were welcoming a 2nd baby, this time a girl again through a surrogate. “Thankful for my baby girl🥹🩷👶🏼” Paris posted on Nov. 23, 2023.

4. Rebel Wilson becomes a Mum

In November of 2022, Rebel Wilson, and her fiancée Ramona Agruma, welcomed a baby girl. She announced the arrival of their daughter with a heartfelt thank you to her surrogate in the process with her. “Beyond proud to announce the birth of my first child, Royce Lillian, born this past week via surrogate 💗,”…”I can’t even describe the love I have for her, she’s a beautiful miracle! I am forever grateful to everyone who has been involved, (you know who you are), this has been years in the making…but particularly wanted to thank my gorgeous surrogate who carried her and birthed her with such grace and care. Thank you for helping me start my own family, it’s an amazing gift. The BEST gift!!” Wilson posted on her Instagram.

Why did she choose a Surrogate vs. Carrying herself? Wilson told TODAY She had previously gone through the process of freezing her eggs at the age of 40. “I was lucky to get an embryo from the process because of my age and because I have polycystic ovary syndrome,” Wilson said. “With just one embryo, I decided to go with surrogacy. Physically I could have carried the baby, but there was a much higher statistical chance it would work with a surrogate.”
