I know what you are thinking because I was thinking the same thing.
It isn’t what we were thinking.
With that being said, it is still quite weird, but I will explain why it happened after you read the report from TMZ.
A family in Utah will certainly have a story to tell their newest member … because a 56-year-old mom is carrying her son’s baby.
Jeff and Cambria already have 2 sets of twins, but wanted more, and that’s when grandma decided she’d work as the vessel to carry the new kiddo.
Nancy, however, did express concern about carrying a baby at her age, but after docs gave her the green light she acted fast before she began menopause. It’s been 26 years since Nancy was last pregnant.
Speaking to SWNS, Jeff said, “I felt grateful to have such a selfless and loving mom that was willing to make that kind of sacrifice for my family … having experienced over four years of infertility treatments, I knew how complicated the process can be and doubted that it was possible for her to carry a baby for us, but I was very moved that she would even offer.”
I would imagine they went this route because the cost of hiring a surrogate can be upwards of $50k.
I am sure his mom is doing it for free.
I will assume there is no health risk to the baby by having your mother carry your child because otherwise, why would they let her do it? It is all a bit strange, but that is how they get down in Utah; I am sure you would have been able to name that state even if I hadn’t put it in the title. This is something I think they could have kept to themselves.
