Many celebrities, including Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas, have used surrogacy to produce children. There are a variety of reasons for this, including being a single parent, being in a same-sex relationship, or dealing with infertility. Many celebrities have previously utilized this method of motherhood; in the meantime, Priyanka and Nick contribute to the long-chain, since there is no way to avoid it.
They had their baby girl three weeks sooner, on January 22, 2022, thanks to surrogacy. Priyanka didn’t experience any fertility issues. Priyanka selected surrogacy as an easy choice despite their busy schedules at the age of 39.
Other celebrity couples who chose surrogacy include:

Surrogacy is a controversial subject about which many people are still hesitant to speak. People still have restrictive views on surrogacy and believe in the traditional approach of having a baby. I’m hoping that surrogacy will help people throughout the world embrace infertility and motherhood. These celebrities are raising awareness about the benefits of surrogacy without any preconceived notions. Surrogacy is also impossible without exceptional surrogates and their incredibly supportive families, who enable the infertile parents to have a child.
