Actress Amy Smart is feeling especially grateful for those who made her dreams of becoming a mother come true.
Just three weeks ago, Amy Smart and her husband Carter Oosterhouse made a surprising baby announcement. They posted a picture of themselves cuddling with a newborn baby girl in a hospital bed. “It is with great attitude and pleasure to welcome our little girl Flora to the world. What a blessed way to bring in 2017. Amen and Thank You God for this special new life!!”
This announcement was an immense surprise to those who follow Amy and Carter, as neither of them had made any hints that they were looking to expand their family.
Amy and Carter first began dating in 2010, and were engaged after five months. They were married in 2011 in Traverse City, Michigan, where Carter is from.
Now the couple has decided to open up about Flora’s birth, and although the truth is surprising, it’s refreshing to hear their story.
Amy revealed via Instagram that Flora was born to a surrogate mother, and this was done because Amy actually struggled with infertility issues for a few years.
The 40-year-old actress was feeling especially grateful as she gave thanks to her surrogate. “One month ago today, Dec. 26th our amazing beautiful daughter came into this world. Feeling so grateful to have her in my arms. After years of fertility struggles I give thanks today to our kind, loving surrogate for carrying her.”
Baby Flora has the most beautiful little eyes, and Amy has been getting nothing but love for choosing to share her story.
