Expanding their brood, Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick announced this week they are welcoming twin girls via a surrogate.
By not revealing any details about why they chose a surrogate, Parker, 44, and Broderick, 47, have left many of their well-wishing fans with questions.
For example, what is a surrogate? They are women, often with children of their own, who offer to carry the babies of couples who experience infertility. The most common variety, known as a gestational carrier, carries an embryo provided by the couple, and has no genetic relationship to the child in question (the womb-for-rent scenario). Other surrogates use sperm provided by the couple, but their own eggs.
