Jordana Brewster Opens Up About Using A Surrogate: 'I Feel A Little Left Out'
Jordana Brewster is all bundled up as she makes her way back to her car after meeting a friend for lunch at Zinqué on Tuesday (December 29) in West Hollywood.
The 35-year-old Furious 7 star recently addressed having to use a surrogate in a interview with Yahoo Parenting.
“I didn’t really have a choice about being open, since it was obvious I wasn’t pregnant. And for me it wasn’t a choice, I needed to use a surrogate,” Jordana expressed. “But I didn’t feel judged, it’s more like I felt awkward. Even recently, we were at this baby group and the teacher made the assumption ‘Well, you all birthed your children’ and I couldn’t be like ‘Well, actually…’ So sometimes I feel a little left out when other moms talk about what their birth experience was like, and I feel the loss of not having carried or having been able to carry. But luckily I keep my circle tight and close, so I never feel judged.”
“In many ways, I feel lucky that I was able to be open,” Jordana added. “There are so many women who are young and have to go through IVF and feel like they can’t talk about it, and that’s really unfortunate.”
