“Our surrogate is so cool, she’s like, ‘This is not about me. I don’t want to sit in a chair, I don’t want to be the center of attention because this is for you guys,’ ” Shaun T revealed to PEOPLE at the time.
Blokker revealed to PEOPLE that his favorite part of the baby shower was not a gift or present but rather, “It was recently the adoration that everybody has and the help for us.”
“Everybody knew our excursion and how strong they were and energized when they discovered that we were pregnant,” he proceeded. “Once in a while you become involved with life and things are insane, however, there are days like that where everyone comes and gives you adore.”
Some stats on surrogacy:
In the US alone, there is an estimated average of 9 children born every year, in each state, through a surrogate. Unfortunately, there isn’t much data that goes back before 2008 since most surrogacy pregnancies or agreements were not tracked or they are not currently shared with the public. For surrogate mothers who are below the age of 35, the success rate of a pregnancy can reach as high as sixty percent.
As mothers advance in age, the success rates of a surrogacy can decrease accordingly.
“And a HUGE thank you to our amazing surrogate for being so selfless and going on this journey with us,” he added
