Colombian actress Sofía Vergara is a rising star and doesn’t want anything to get in the way of her success. However, on the personal front, Vergara and her fiancé want a baby! And yet Vergara, who already has a 21-year old son, won’t let a pregnancy interfere with her work on the popular sitcom Modern Family. According to the New York Post, for her, as for many others, surrogacy is the way to go. It seems like the baby would be biologically conceived by Vergara and fiancé Loeb, although the Colombian actress has chosen to have a close friend carry the pregnancy.
Vergara joins a long list of celebrities who have used surrogate mothers to have children. This list includes singers Miguel Bosé and Ricky Martin and actresses Sarah Jessica Parker and Nicole Kidman.
Surrogate mothers are legal in the European Union and, within the United States, they are becoming less of a peculiarity among the rich and famous who, for personal or professional reasons, choose this method as opposed to traditional pregnancy or adoption.
