Anderson Hays Cooper and his surrogacy journey
Anderson Hays Cooper is an American television journalist mostly famous for being the primary anchor of the CNN news. Anderson Cooper planned to co-parent Wyatt with his former partner, nightclub owner Benjamin Maisani.
Anderson Hays Cooper chose surrogacy to conceive a child as he and his former partner Benjamin Maisani were a Gay couple. He said “I wanted to have a child who came from that and grew up knowing about that. That's why I chose to do it the way I did it".
On April 30, 2020, Cooper announced the birth of his son Wyatt Morgan by a surrogate on April 27.
Many same-sex couples are eager to expand their families. Most popular option for having a child for members of LGBTQ community is Surrogacy. Surrogacy is a popular option for gay men who want to be biologically connected to their children, as well as for lesbian couples who are unable to conceive or carry a pregnancy on their own. In LGBT surrogacy, pregnancy is most commonly achieved using an egg donor, gestational carrier and in vitro fertilization (IVF), and the surrogacy process is essentially the same as it would be for any other intended parent.
Surrogacy is an effective way to extend your family and fulfill your dream of becoming parents. Unlike adoption, surrogacy allows you to be biologically related to the child. Gays and lesbian couples can give their own sperm or eggs in the surrogacy process.
