Jamie Chung Admits Using A Surrogate
The actress and partner Bryan Greenberg welcomed twin boys into their home in October last year. Now Chung has spoken about their decision to utilize an embryo donor. “I was frightened of being pregnant,” Chung, the Dexter: New Blood star, confessed during an interview on Today. I was scared of the possibility of having my lifestyle in limbo for two or more years. If you don’t get a job within a month from your previous job, it’s like you’re a quick disappearance in my field. The work we do is at an incredibly fast pace, and it’s an agreement we came to as an entire couple.”
She then explained that one reason she chose to keep the pregnancy secret even though she had shared her experience of freezing the eggs she had in 2019the reason is that surrogacy is viewed as a sin. Chung acknowledged, “I think there’s a little embarrassment.” “It’s still a rare occurrence, and we weren’t prepared for the reaction.” We just wanted to protect ourselves. We announced when we felt ready.”
Chung earned her fame in the MTV show The True World: San Diego in 2004 and has been trying to establish an acting career since then, with the most recent working on the comedy Reunion, where she stars alongside Jillian Bell as well as Chace Crawford. “I’m sure people think, ‘Oh, she’s so vain.'” She didn’t want to be pregnant,’ she said, “and it’s a lot more complicated than that.” “For me, personally, and I’ll stop there, I’ve worked my tail off my entire life to reach where I am.” I’m not going to miss any possibility. I’m not looking to become bitter.”

It’s not ideal to start with a traumatic one or a difficult one; however, I think that postpartum depression can be real.” “I felt a bit uncomfortable with certain emotions I experienced,” she added. It’s a relief to know that it’s normal and that it’s due to stress and anxiety as well as for some experiencing this, it can be a challenging transition.”
