There’s a new mum in Hollywood: Rebel Wilson, 42, revealed via Instagram on Monday, November 7, that she has welcomed a baby girl via surrogate.
“Beyond proud to announce the birth of my first child, Royce Lillian, born this past week via surrogate,” she wrote alongside a photo of baby Royce wearing a pastel pink onesie and unicorn socks. “I can’t even describe the love I have for her, she’s a beautiful miracle!”
The Australian actor continued, “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!!”
As of press time Agruma has not shared any photos or details about baby Royce. Given Wilson’s statement that her path to motherhood was “years” long, it’s likely that Agruma came into the picture after Wilson had decided to become a parent. However, Royce’s name does fit perfectly with Rebel and Ramona’s current loungewear collaboration, which they named R and R.
R and R…and Baby R? Adorable.
Wilson told People in 2019 that her desire to become a mother inspired her to get healthier, especially after a fertility doctor, while discussing her potential to harvest and freeze her eggs, "looked me up and down and said, ‘You’d do much better if you were healthier.’
“I was taken aback. I thought, ‘Oh, God, this guy's so rude.’ He was right,” she added. “I was carrying around a lot of excess weight. It’s almost like I didn’t think of my own needs. I thought of a future child’s needs that really inspired me to get healthier.”
Rebel Wilson concluded her IG caption, “I am ready to give little Roycie all the love imaginable. I am learning quickly…much respect to all the Mums out there! Proud to be in your club.”
