There are many ways to have a family in 2021, including adopting, IVF treatments, and surrogacy. For many celebrities, using a gestational surrogate is the method of choice for bringing a baby into their family. A surrogate has a fertilized embryo implanted in their uterus and then carries the baby.

These are some celebrities who have shared their experience with surrogacy.

In January 2016 Tyra and Erik welcomed their only child, son York, via surrogate. In September 2015 Banks revealed to People she had fertility issues and had undergone IVF treatments to start a family with her boyfriend of two years, Erik.

“The best present we worked and prayed so hard for is finally here. He’s got my fingers and big eyes and his daddy Erik’s mouth and chin. As we thank the angel of a woman that carried our miracle baby boy for us, we pray for everyone who struggles to reach this joyous milestone. York Banks Asla, welcome to the world,”
