Celebrity Surrogacy: Dancing with the Stars

If you are an avid fan of the television reality competition Dancing with the Stars then you might be familiar with the name Marissa Jaret Winokur. You may also know this actress from her television roles on shows like Dharma and Greg or even from her Broadway performance in Hairspray. If you know who she is and you've seen any recent pictures of her, you might be surprised to find out that she's expecting a baby. There are two reasons for that. The first if the very obvious one that she doesn't look pregnant. And the second is because she is a cancer survivor who had a hysterectomy as part of her treatment. As you might have guessed then, Winokur isn't pregnant herself. She is using a surrogate to carry the baby for her. This isn't the first case of a celebrity using a surrogate to bring a child into her life. (Kelly Klein is a good example.) Nevertheless it remains rare and noteworthy.
