There are a million different ways to become a family in 2019, but this little baby, Uma Louise Dougherty-Eledge, has a truly unique story of how she came into this world! The baby girl was born to overwhelmed and excited dads, Matthew Eledge and Elliot Dougherty -- after being conceived via in vitro fertilization! Here's the twist... They used Matthew's sperm and the eggs came from Elliot's sister!
Even more of a twist... The person who carried and gave birth to baby Uma was actually Uma's grandmother... aka Matthew's mom.
Matthew Eledge’s 61-year-old mother Cecile Reyneck Eledge served as the gestational carrier, helping her son and his hubs to become first-time parents. The proud dads says other people had offered to be a surrogate for them and carry their baby, but in the end, it never worked out. So that’s when they found their one-of-a-kind way to create their family.
