An incredible moment for the families involved.
After waiting 9 months they finally get their own bundle of joy.
And fortunately in today's day in age, pretty much anybody can have a baby.

There is now an array of different conception methods for struggling couples...

Now, what exactly is surrogacy?

A couples' fertilized embryos are implanted into the surrogate...

Obviously, agreeing to become a surrogate for someone is a huge commitment...

Most couples choose someone they know to be a surrogate...
And one story has warmed the internet's heart this week.
Anthony Deegan, 38, and his fiancé Ray Williams, 30, welcomed their baby Theo last year thanks to Tracey Hulse, 42.
The pair used an anonymous egg donor and both donated sperm but elected not to find out who the biological father is.
"We couldn't repay Tracey, you can't put a price on what she has done for us. We are so proud of her for stepping into the situation and helping us achieve our dream family."
"I felt honoured when they said yes as it meant my brother trusted me enough to carry his baby," Tracey agreed.
