Kelly Klein Baby

KLEIN IS A MOMMY ~ Page Six is reporting that Lukas Alexander Rector was born to a surrogate at 8:03 a.m. on October 25th, 2007. He weighed 6 lbs., 9 oz. A friend said, "While Lukas was born in California, he will be raised in New York."

Ten years ago, at the age of forty, Kelly Klein felt her biological clock begin to start ticking. She was already at the age when women start thinking that it's time to either get pregnant or consider other options for having children. Fast forward ten years and the urge never went away. She acted on her wish to be a mother even though she will be raising the baby on her own. Although the baby bears Kelly's maiden name but she says that her ex-husband will still be involved in the new baby's life.

There are many different ways to go about having your dream family. Often, what we initially have planned isn't how things work out. Kelly Klein probably did not think that she would be fifty before having her first child, nor that it would come from a surrogate mother after she had divorced her husband. She is also not the first famous person to use a surrogate. In 1995, gorgeous actress and model Toukie Smith and Robert De Niro became the proud parents of twin boys using a hired womb for her egg and his sperm.
