Former model Caprice Bourret’s journey to motherhood is nothing short of a miracle.
The Ladies of London star has opened up to Life & Style about finding a surrogate after doctors told her she wouldn’t be able to carry a child. Lo and behold, shortly after she and her husband found the right woman, the entrepreneur received the surprise of lifetime: she was pregnant.
“I didn’t believe it when I saw the pregnancy test. The doctors told me I couldn’t carry. Literally, I bought 10 more tests and for two hours I was taking all 10 tests,” the 42-year-old recalls. “I swear to you, I didn’t believe it! Then I went to the doctor and he confirmed.”

The couple welcomed one of their sons via the surrogate on Aug. 19, 2013. Caprice gave birth herself less than a month later to their second baby boy.
“They are literally the loves of my life. I am so in love with my boys,” she says about her miracle babies. “I look forward to waking up every morning. Seeing my boys is the best feeling. Words cannot describe how much I love these children.”
The mother-of-two has faced an on-going barrage of questions about which child was born via surrogacy and which she carried. Caprice has never disclosed this and stands by her decision not to. "It's not that it's too personal. It's irrelevant. They're both biologically mine, so who cares, really?!"
And the surrogate is still heavily involved in their lives. “She just saw the boys! I send pictures to her. They’ll grow up knowing her,” says the entrepreneur.
So does she hope to add on to her brood?
“If my body would do it, I would have 10 more. We’ll see,” she confides. “If we’re lucky enough, that would be beyond a blessing, but you know what? I’m so lucky and blessed to have my two boys.”
