Congratulations to Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban who surprised the world with their announcement today that they have welcomed a new daughter, Faith Margaret, on December 28th via a “gestational carrier” which is a new and different way of saying ”surrogate”.
In a statement, they said:
“Our family is truly blessed, and just so thankful, to have been given the gift of baby Faith Margaret.”
“No words can adequately convey the incredible gratitude that we feel for everyone who was so supportive throughout this process, in particular our gestational carrier.”

There were no hints given during Nicole’s appearance at the Golden Globes yesterday, even though their new daughter is now 3 weeks old. We’re going to be doing a post shortly that looks more closely into the options of surrogacy and egg donation. They are choices that seem to be gaining popularity with couples battling infertility – and not just famous ones like Nicole & Keith and Sarah Jessica Parker and husband Matthew Broderick who welcomed twin girls the same way last year.
It’s a beautiful day when a baby is born and having struggled to fall pregnant myself as Nicole obviously has, I wish them and their new daughter all the happiness in the world.
