Caprice Bourret is only pregnant with one baby, yet she has two on the way!
The unique story of this model mom-to-be, who is planning to welcome two children just four weeks apart, is possible thanks to a surrogate — though the incredibly close timing was anything but planned.
“I’ve been speaking to my gestational carrier every day and she’s a member of my family now,” the model turned lingerie designer explained to The Sun. “She’ll be known to the boys as Auntie and she wants to keep in touch.”
The 41-year-old, seen here in late May, turned to surrogacy after being advised by doctors that her own chances of conceiving were slim. However, just one month after word came an American woman was pregnant with Caprice and millionaire Ty Comfort’s son, she found out she was pregnant too.
“I was really worried about telling everyone about surrogacy — over here in the UK it seems more taboo,” the six-months-along model, who is also expecting a boy, explained of how she’s handling her unique family on both a public and private level. ”I was worried what I’d tell my boys. But they’re going to know the truth, 100 percent.”
Caprice is due in September, while the surrogate is due one month earlier. Can you imagine being 9 months pregnant with a newborn to care for? Talk about exhaustion!
How interesting to think that the boys aren’t twins, but one will be the older brother by only a matter of weeks. My own two sons are 20 months apart, and go from fighting like cats and dogs to playing and laughing every other minute. I’m betting Caprice’s home will soon be filled with as much rambunctious noise as mine!
How far apart are your kids? Would you prefer them as close as Caprice’s will be?
