News personality and radio host Toni Street and partner Matt France have announced the arrival of their new baby boy, Lachlan Stephen France. Little ‘Lachie’ arrived a couple of weeks early on 9th August and was born via surrogacy, thanks to Toni’s friend Sophie Braggins.
Surrogacy “special and selfless”
Toni was unable to carry the baby herself due to Churg-Strauss syndrome. When news of the surrogacy was announced earlier in the year, Toni referred to her friend Sophie as “special and selfless” for volunteering. Toni told her The Hits co-hosts Sam Wallace and Sarah Gandy, “It was just like having both my other two children, it was this pure love moment.”
Lachlan is a baby brother to siblings Juliette and Mackenzie and is named after Toni’s late brother.
Have you every considered surrogacy, either as the mum-to-be or the surrogate?
