Amy Smart Reveals That She Used a Surrogate to Have a Daughter 'After Years of Fertility Struggles'
Actress Amy Smart is opening up about her struggle with infertility and revealed in an Instagram post that she and her husband of 5 years, Carter Oosterhouse, had used a surrogate to carry their daughter.
Accompanying a sweet photo of theJust Friendsactress loving on her baby girl, Smart's emotional and heartwarming caption gave thanks to her "kind, loving surrogate for carrying [the baby]." She also made mention of her own "years of fertility struggles" in her attempts to conceive.
The actress first revealed that she and her husband had welcomed their baby (born December 26th) via social media as well. Smart shared the news with an Instagram post on December 31st.
In the post, Smart shared a photo of herself and her husband holding their new little girl, Flora, in what appeared to be a hospital bed. At the time of the initial announcement (which came as a surprise, given that Smart hadn't publicly hinted at the fact that she and Oosterhouse were expecting), Smart didn't mention anything about her daughter having been carried via surrogate.
Though Smart is by no means the first celebrity to welcome a child via surrogacy, she's one of relatively few to be so open and honest and her fertility woes.
