As more and more “regular” people turn to surrogacy to expand their family, more celebrities are also opening up about their experience using a gestational surrogate to welcome their child. 

A number of celebrities have turned to surrogacy, including Kim Kardashian, Tyra Banks, Jimmy Fallon, Nicole Kidman, Gabrielle Union, Lucy Liu, Neil Patrick Harris, Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra, and more. 

So, what is it really like to be a surrogate for a celebrity? How much do celebrity surrogates get paid? Do they get special perks? Read on to learn more.

How do surrogates get matched with celebrities?

At Surrogate Parenting Services (SPS), we believe that the matching process should be approached with personal care and extensive experience. Our founder and president, Cristie Montgomery, personally guides this process, using everything she learns from the personality profiles of the surrogate and intended parents, the meetings with each party, and her many years of experience in the field. As a result, our matches are almost always a success.

The matching process is no different whether the intended parent is a celebrity or public figure. The surrogate will know who the intended parents are; however, she will not be able to post things about her journey without the intended parents’ permission, and she will need to sign an NDA. 

How much do celebrity surrogates get paid?

At SPS, our benefit package is the same for all surrogates, regardless of who the intended parents are. 

The compensation depends on the surrogate mother’s level of experience and the details of her surrogacy journey. You can learn more about surrogate compensation at SPS here.

What is it like being a surrogate for a celebrity?

While being a surrogate for a celebrity might sound glamorous and exciting, your experience will be largely the same as it would be with any other intended parents. 

When you work with SPS, you will have a case manager who is available to you 24/7. She will educate you on the entire process, attend all fertility appointments and pregnancy milestone appointments with you, and be there through your labor and delivery. 

The intended parents are as involved in the process as they would like to be. The desired level of communication and involvement is one of the criteria that we consider in the matching process. So, for example, if you want to build a close relationship with the intended parents, you will be matched with a couple who wants the same. 

We hope this article answered some of your questions about what it’s like to be a surrogate for a celebrity!
