Martha Stewart’s daughter, Alexis Stewart, has revealed that after years of trying to get pregnant through in vitro treatments she will use a surrogate.
Alexis, who co-hosts the Hallmark Channel show Whatever With Alexis and Jennifer, spent $27,000 a month for the past two years on fertility treatments!
Alexis divorced her husband in 2004, and told People in 2007, “I’m single now, but having my own kid is the most important thing in my life, so I am trying everything I can: fancy doctors, expensive drugs, high-tech procedures…”
Martha seems to have put some pressure on Alexis as well. Alexis explains, “my mom’s just desperate. She has wanted grandchildren forever . . . She’s always like, ‘For my birthday, I would like you to be pregnant.’ And I’m like, ‘Me, too!’”
Surrogacy seems to be the go-to fertility treatment these days and I find it amazing that science can now offer this miracle to those who cannot conceive naturally. Good luck, Alexis! I look forward to hearing the good news of a pregnancy!
