Diana Ross Baby Bump – The Best Surrogate Ever?

A friend shared a post (True or False) of 71 year old Diana Ross “pregnant” and it was said she was surrogate for her daughter, who could not carry to term. My first reaction was Awww… Really sweet and considerate of her! My friend said “Best surrogate ever!”

For us as Nigerians this is still a new concept, and to quite a few, a totally foreign one. Replies to the post were in the area of “So she is pregnant for her son-in-law?” “Abomination!” and “God forgive oyibo people!” Is it really a bad thing that a mom would want her daughter to experience the same joy she felt when she had her?

I believe this speaks to all of us as women, to understand the yearning of every woman to carry a baby in her arms by whichever legit means possible. It also points to the various means the field of medicine is discovering to make that desire a possibility.

Diana Ross has said this picture below, which is being tagged the Diana Ross Baby Bump and is the source of all the speculation, was nothing more than a bad day photo… It could be that or it could be a baby bump…What do you think?

    Who say she is pregnant for her son in law? For crying out loud, she is just helping her daughter to carry the baby. In this part of the world, we are yet to come to term to somethings and I hope I will eyes will open before its late

    hi, i used a surrogate and have a girl boy set of twins. i am so very grateful and thankful to God that such science exist and a lot of people are benefitting from it.

    however, no IVF clinic ever will subject a 71 year old woman to surrogacy or straight IVF. there are age limits for these things.

    once you tick all boxes of legality, ethics, emotions, rights and obligations then you go ahead with whatever surrogacy arrangement works for you.

    a lot of people cannot afford the bills attached to the process which includes compensation to the surrogate for her time and committment to the process.

    I think it’s a beautiful blessing that she would do such a blessing.


We'd love to hear from you
