The new draft Surrogacy (Regulation) Bill 2016, which makes commercial surrogacy illegal in India and passed today by the Union Cabinet, has sent the nation into a tizzy. Surrogacy has been a way of attaining the joys of parenthood to many who have been unable to achieve it for several reasons. And along with common people, some of our biggest Bollywood and Hollywood celebrities too have children through surrogacy.

Tusshar Kapoor was the latest in the Bolly brigade to opt for surrogacy. The unmarried actor welcomed home baby boy Laksshya earlier this year, much to the joy of his parents.

Oscar-winning actress Nicole Kidman welcomed a baby girl, Faith Margaret, with husband Keith Urban through a surrogate mother in 2011.

Neil Patrick Harris welcomed twins, Gideon and Harper, with partner David Burtka via a surrogate mother in 2010.

Hollywood celebs have been opting for surrogacy for years now.

The Sex and the City actress Sarah Jessica Parker had twin daughters, Marion Loretta Elwell and Tabitha Hodge, with husband husband Matthew Broderick in 2009.
