There are many ways to make a family, especially in Hollywood!

For these stars, the road to parenthood was far more complex and challenging than they ever could have imagined.

"We really had thought it through financially, emotionally, relationship-wise. We didn’t just accidentally get pregnant. These kids come into our world with nothing but love," Neil Patrick Harris revealed of his much-longed for children, daughter Harper and son Gideon, who he welcomed with husband David Burtka via a surrogate in 2010.

Meanwhile Hunger Games star Elizabeth Banks, who welcomed two children via a gestational carrier, is eternally grateful for her experiences.

“There’s lots of ways of being a mother. You have to listen to your heart in this situation. There are many paths to having a family. I’ve always said I could be a mum. There are lots of babies out there that need love," Elizabeth has mused.

In February, model Tyra Banks confirmed she and her partner Erik Asla became first-time parents with the help of a surrogate and are now overjoyed with their newborn son York.

“We are so excited for our new baby boy bundle of joy. The journey to now has not been an easy process, as I’ve shared before. But there was a beautiful bright light at the end of the tunnel for me and his father, Erik,” Tyra said in her statement.
