Updated October 11, 2019 342.6k views21 items

Millions of couples struggle with infertility and the famous people below are no exception. Each one of these entertainment superstars have had trouble conceiving naturally and resorted to undergoing IVF treatment or artificial insemination. Because of their high profile careers and a stigma about artificial pregnancies, celebs often keep their problems with fertility, miscarriages, and IVF treatments a secret. In recent years, however, more and more entertainers are opening up about using various types of treatments and procedures to get pregnant.

IVF and other artificial fertility procedures comes at a high cost, with no guarantee for pregnancy. Treatments involve several visits to the doctor, self-administered hormone shots, unpleasant side effects, and other necessary steps. Celebrities that have opted for this difficult and emotional route include singing idols Celine Dion and Mariah Carey, both of whom may have been infertile but are now proud mothers to beautiful children. Featuring older parents who conceived twins and more, this list has it all. 

The list of famous women below also includes actresses like Brooke Shields, Courteney Cox, Chrissy Teigen, Jane Seymour, and Emma Thompson, who all gave birth in their later years with the help of IVF. Others, like Oscar winner Nicole Kidman and TV personality Giuliana Rancic, used gestational surrogates after undergoing in-vitro to have their babies. Got baby fever?
