Model Caprice Becomes A Mum Through Surrogacy - Just Weeks Before She Is Due To Give Birth Herself

Model Caprice becomes a mum through surrogacy - just weeks before she is due to give birth herself

Huge congratulations to Caprice who has become a mum for the first time.

The model, 41, and partner Ty Comfort, 46, welcomed a little boy who was born to a surrogate mum.

Caprice – who is pregnant with her second child – tweeted the happy news on Monday, saying: "Happiest day of my life my first son was born this morning xxx."

Caprice discovered she was pregnant after organising a surrogate to carry a baby for her following her problems conceiving. She is due to give birth later this year.

Caprice announced her pregnancy with an interview with The Sun, saying: "We are incredibly delighted. I have always wanted a family but I didn't find the right person that I could see myself spending the rest of my life with until two years ago.

"Our gestational carrier (surrogate) is part of my family now and I'm forever grateful for the kindness and selflessness she has shown us by taking such good care of our beautiful little baby."
