Gestational Surrogacy: How It Made Chris Daughtry a Dad
On his website, rocker Chris Daughtry is thanking the Almighty for the birth of his twins, but maybe some credit should go to the woman who bore them.
And it wasn't his wife.
Because of a partial hysterectomy four years ago, Deanna Daughtry is unable to bear children, according to People magazine. So fraternal twins Adalyn Rose (6 pounds, 5 ounces) and Noah James (5 pounds, 5 ounces), were born to another woman via the new-fashioned way: gestational surrogacy.
Just what is gestational surrogacy? It's when a couple arrange to have another woman carry and give birth to their children, according to WebMD. The surrogate has no genetic connection with the child.
