Hacking scandal executive has daughter via surrogate
Former News International CEO Rebekah Brooks and her husband have become parents through surrogacy.
Former News International CEO Rebekah Brooks and her husband have become parents through surrogacy. Once the editor of the now-defunct tabloid News of the World, the 43-year-old Ms Brooks was in the business of headlining celebrities’ private lives. Now her own 5-year battle with infertility is fodder for her colleagues, along with her arrest on charges of alleged phone hacking and corruption. The surrogate mother of Scarlett Anne Mary Brooks, whose name has not been released, was pregnant with twins, but one of them died early in the pregnancy. The story is likely to boost the profile of surrogacy in the UK. ~ BBC, Jan 26; BioEdge, Nov 19
