Everything to know about celebrity surrogacy; ‘buyer beware’ in AZ, says Audra Petrolle, family law attorney at Rose Law Group

By Lillian Giselle | Daily Mail

When Paris Hilton, 41, announced that she and her partner, Carter Reum, also 41, had secretly welcomed a baby boy via surrogacy on Tuesday, she joined a long list of stars who have been turning to gestational carriers recently.

Many of Hollywood’s most famous faces have opted to use surrogacy to expand their families in recent months – including Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra, Khloe Kardashian and Tristan Thompson, Rebel Wilson and Ramona Agruma, and Elon Musk and Grimes – but the process comes at a steep price.

Welcoming a child via surrogacy can cost hundreds of thousands of dollars for the average person, and celebrities have to fork out even more, thanks to the ‘special arrangements’ that are needed to ensure their privacy.


“Arizona actually has a statute that prohibits surrogacy contracts, A.R.S. 25-218. So, buyer beware because a surrogacy agreement in AZ would likely be unenforceable.”
