Rebel Wilson welcomes first baby
Rebel Wilson is officially a mom. The actress announced the birth of her first child on November 7th on an Instagram post.
Her daughter was born via surrogate.
“Beyond proud to announce the birth of my first child, Royce Lillian, born this past week via surrogate,” wrote Wilson.
“I can’t even describe the love I have for her, she’s a beautiful miracle! I am forever grateful to everyone who has been involved, (you know who you are), this has been years in the making… but particularly wanted to thank my gorgeous surrogate who carried her and birthed her with such grace and care. Thank you for helping me start my own family, it’s an amazing gift. The best gift,”
She added: “I am ready to five little Roycie all the love imaginable. I am learning quickly… much respect to all the mums out there! Proud to be in your club.”
In 2019, Rebel Wilson visited her fertility doctor and he said she’s have a better chance of harvesting and freezing her eggs if she lost weight. So she decided to embark on a “year of health.”
The actress also has polycystic ovarian syndrome, which can affect fertility.
Ultimately, Rebel lost over 80 lbs. “It wasn’t a goal to get to a certain weight,” she said. “It was just being the healthiest version of myself.”
“I would love to have a family. I’m just going for it by myself at the moment because of the biological clock,” she told People at the time. “If I meet the right person, great, and then they can fit in with whatever happens.”
“It’s great that the technology exists. You have so many options with surrogacy and sperm donors,” she added. “I only started thinking of fertility when I was 39 so you feel quite late but then there are women in their mid-40s who’ve been successful. Look at Janet Jackson, it’s pretty inspiring.”
Relationship with Ramona Agruma
Rebel Wilson and Ramona Agruma made their relationship public this June. The announcement also served as a coming out statement.
“I thought I was searching for a Disney Prince… but maybe what I rally needed all this time was a Disney Princess. #loveislove,” wrote the actress.
Recently, rumours started circulating that the two were engaged. However, Rebel shut them down pretty quickly.
“It’s a very serious relationship and they’re super happy together,” an insider told People. “It’s been very cool for Rebel’s friends to see her this secure with someone.”
