The child which is name Scarlett Anne Mary Brooks came into this world just yesterday January 25, 2012 at The Portland Hospital in central London, weighing six pounds and one ounce.
Brooks and her husband had spent five years trying to conceive before welcoming Scarlett by a surrogate. The pair’s spokesperson David Wilson said in a statement:
”They are obviously overjoyed and relieved at a safe birth. Scarlett was born at 37 weeks and is perfectly healthy and the family is getting to know one another.
”It is tremendous news for them. They have been trying for five years to have a baby – since they got together. They had more than two years of treatment to see if they could, but that has not been possible. They will be forever indebted to the surrogate.”
The surrogate mother has expressed a wish to remain anonymous.
