“Chris Ivery has to do what he has to do and provide, and then I had to provide something as well, you know?” she explained. “You have to retrieve the egg.

Though she was so open about the process, she’s keeping the surrogate’s name a secret. “This is an incredible thing to do with your life, to give the gift of carrying someone's child, so I am forever grateful and feel very blessed and grateful to her—she who will remain anonymous.”
