I want to be a surrogate,” he says. “When I was first approached with the idea, I thought it was crazy. Then I thought about what it means and what having a family means to us. I thought, This is a huge deal and I’m capable of it, why not?”
Thomas, 36, and wife Nancy welcomed their third child, son Jensen, in July and want to help other couples who cannot conceive on their own. “If I can do this and help make another family fulfill their dream of having a child, then that’s what I want to do.”
Thomas says they might add to their family as well. “If we don’t find the right family for surrogacy, I think I have one more person inside of me.”
Thomas and Nancy are also parents to daughter Susan, 2, and son Austin, 1.
