Reality TV star Kim Kardashian West and her husband Kanye West have announced the birth of their third child – a baby girl delivered by a surrogate. Her surrogate had made their “dreams come true with the greatest gift one could give”, she said.
One woman who knows exactly what it is like to give that gift is Laura Mott, a 31-year-old from Essex, who acted as a surrogate mum last year.
On 5 February, she gave birth to a 6lb 14 oz baby girl. Moments later, the baby was in the arms of her intended mother, Melissa.
