Gay couple take to FB in search of surrogate

Thu 21 Jan 2016 In: New Zealand Daily News View at Wayback

A New Zealand gay couple have taken to Facebook in the search for a surrogate mother to carry their child. Mark Edwards and Christian Newman have launched a Facebook page, ‘Baby Daddies Looking for a Kiwi Surrogate’, in the hopes that they will have success in finding a surrogate or “baby Mumma”. The couple write, “We are excited for our plan is to start a family and we're hoping you can help” and say that with the page having only been up for a week, they are currently chatting to a few women who have already offered to help them start a family. No other gay couple in New Zealand has used the official surrogate system and if successful, the couple will be the first.
