Brooks to have child by surrogate mother
The former chief executive of Rupert Murdoch's News International, Rebekah Brooks (pictured), is expecting a child through a surrogate mother.
Ms Brooks, who is currently on police bail following her arrest in connection with the 'News of the World' phone-hacking scandal and alleged corrupt payments to police, said she and her husband, Charlie Brooks, will become parents to a baby girl in February.
The pregnancy had originally been twins but one of the babies died in the early weeks of the surrogacy. It had been known about in Fleet Street for a number of weeks but publications agreed to maintain the couple's privacy. (© Independent News Service)
