When asked if she felt ‘less connected’, she agreed: ‘People say it’ll take a minute. But Kim said hers was easy, this is not easy.’

‘I definitely buried my head in the sand during that pregnancy, that I didn’t digest what was happening,’ she added in a confessional. ‘When I went to the hospital, I really think that was the first time that really registered.

‘It has nothing to do with the baby, it’s just… “Okay, we’re having a baby, this is my son and I’m taking him home with me.” I definitely was in a state of shock, I think, from my entire experience in general.

‘I felt really guilty that this woman just had my baby and I take the baby, and I go to another room and you’re separated. It’s such a transactional experience because it’s not about him.

‘I wish someone was honest about surrogacy and the difference of it, but it doesn’t mean it’s bad, it’s still great. It’s just very different.’
