Perez Hilton, celebrity blogger, is certainly not the first celebrity to have his child via surrogacy; but, this week’s announcement of the birth of his daughter, Mia Alma, brought him front and center to the defense of surrogacy. We applaud his decision to make certain that those against surrogacy hear his voice.
According to Perez Hilton,
This is what I’ve dreamed of my whole life.
This dream of being a parent is something that many Americans share. Gay AND straight Americans both use surrogacy to start or add to their families. Yet, in many states, surrogacy is illegal.
As the Supreme Court is ready to make their landmark decision on same-sex marriage, I feel the need to get political and urge all politicians to please make surrogacy legal nationwide.
The dream I’m living is one that everyone should be able to live!
Having said that, my brain is mush right now. I am blissfully afflicted with baby brain and so relieved that my soul, Mia Alma, is here.
My son was born 4 weeks prematurely in 2013. So for the last month I’ve been living on edge and filled with a lot of anxiety.
That anxiety has not completely gone away, but my heart has been filled with so much more love!
Love is what matters most!
Well, said Perez!!
