Pregnant model Caprice to have two babies in four weeks
The 41-year-old model who is due a baby in September, has revealed a surrogate will give birth the month before.
The lingerie model is believed to have hired a surrogate to carry a child for her after she failed to fall pregnant with her partner.
The model was advised by doctors that she was unlikely to conceive naturally, so hoped that finding a surrogate would help her realise her dream of becoming a mother.
She and her partner 46-year-old millionaire businessman Ty Comfort, used the services of a surrogate in the US who was impregnated with an embryo, created in a lab using an egg from Caprice and sperm from Ty.
Then after learning the surrogate was pregnant, the model discovered she was pregnant also, with her baby now due four weeks after the surrogate gives birth.
Caprice is now six months and said last night: “Words can’t describe our happiness when we knew we were expecting two miracle babies.”
"I have always wanted a family but I didn’t find the right person that I could see myself spending the rest of my life with until two years ago," she told The Sun newspaper.
“Our gestational carrier is part of my family now and I’m forever grateful for the kindness and selflessness she has shown us by taking such good care of our beautiful little baby.”
Caprice is believed to know the sex of both babies, both of whom will be born in the US, but will be raised in the UK, where the Californian model lives now.
