YouTube's GloZell Green Announces She's Expecting Her First Baby Via Surrogate
Baby Green is officially on its way
Some exciting news today as YouTube star GloZell Green has just announced that she's expecting her first baby with husband Kevin Simon.
GloZell might be best known for her hilarious videos, but over the past months she's been documenting a more serious side to life after speaking out about her struggles to get pregnant.
After some lifestyle changes to try to help increase their chances of fertility, GloZell and Kevin decided to try the surrogacy route and have now got some happy news, announcing they are now expecting their first child with the help of surrogate Shawna Johnson.
They found out about the baby on December 2nd and shared the awesome news via People.
"We are over the moon," she tells the magazine. "To say, 'What Shawna is doing for us is the greatest gift,' is an understatement. "She truly is an angel in our lives and we will be forever grateful to her for her generosity toward us."
The mum-to-be married Kevin back in 2013 and has been trying to get pregnant ever since. As a sufferer of endometriosis, an extremely painful condition where tissue that should be found in the womb grows outside of the uterus, 43-year-old GloZell was then told by doctors she wouldn't be able to conceive naturally.
"It just wasn't happening," she explains. "They told me there was no hope. But I refused to believe there was no chance."
A BIG congrats to GloZell and Kevin on the news. We've always thought MTV would be a great name for a baby, if they were wondering.
