I love stories about celebrities expecting. And I love stories about celebrities using a surrogate even more. Don’t ask me why. I think it has something to do with the fact that people with such a huge challenge have found a way to overcome it, and will be rewarded with beautiful and wonderful children. And, I really, really love Chris Daughtry, so this story has me over the moon!
Yes, Chris Daughtry and his wife Deanna are not only expecting a baby through surrogacy, they’re expecting twins! And just like all good celebrities these days, Chris announced the news on his website. From Daughtry Official,
“Chris and his wife Deanna Daughtry are proud to announce that they are expecting twins this November. Due to Deanna’s partial hysterectomy in 2006 the couple used IVF and had their embryos transferred to a gestational surrogate, the babies will join the couples’ other children – Hannah and Griffin.
“Deanna and I are overjoyed about this double blessing,” says Chris. “Thank you for your expressions of love and support and for respecting for our privacy during this special time.”
I am happy for them but, I’m also a little confused over the ‘respect our privacy’ bit. I mean, don’t stars say that when they’re going through a really difficult time and don’t want to be bothered? And are the paparazzi really beating down their door? I mean, Chris Daughtry may be a big star, but there are definitely bigger ones out there. And I just don’t get why the demand for privacy. It just seems odd to me. Maybe they’re scared that what happened with Sarah Jessica Parker’s surrogate will happen to them.
Well, in all attempts to respect their privacy, I’d like to congratulate Chris and Deanna! Maybe once those sweet little babies are born, Chris will post pictures up on his website too. Here’s hoping!
