Jamie Chung reveals she used a surrogate because she was ‘terrified’ pregnancy would hurt her career

Jamie Chung surrogacy
  • “Dexter: New Blood” star Jamie Chung, 39, has revealed why she and her husband, actor Bryan Greenberg, decided on surrogacy months after welcoming their twin boys in October 2021.
  • “I was terrified of becoming pregnant. I was terrified of putting my life on hold for two-plus years,” Chung told Today Parents. “In my industry, it feels like you’re easily forgotten if you don’t work within the next month of your last job. Things are so quickly paced in what we do. So it’s a compromise that we made together as a couple.”
  • Although Chung shared her experience with freezing her eggs in 2019, she kept the pregnancy private over the fear of being judged, as the stigma surrounding surrogacy is still pervasive in today’s society.
  • Chung is currently promoting the #PowerSafely Campaign in partnership with Duracell to help reduce the risk of accidental ingestion of lithium coin batteries.
