After struggling for years with fertility issues and failed IVF attempts, former American Idol judge, Kara DioGuardi, 42, confirms that she and husband, Mike McCuddy are preparing to welcome their first child, a baby boy. Keep reading to see what DioGuardi had to say about their new arrival.
According to People, DioGuardi and McCuddy were married in 2009 and wanted to start a family but after years of trying the old fashion way and then failed attempts at IVF, they made the decision to take a different route to parenthood, considering options such as adoption and surrogacy. In the end, she said, “We made a personal decision to try with a surrogate.” And the process seemed incredibly easy. She said, “I asked someone we knew, a friend. And on the first try, it worked.”
DioGuardi went on to express how much she cares for her surrogate and how thankful she is to her for giving them such a precious gift. “We’re praying for our surrogate, that she gets through this and that it’s as easy on her as it can possibly be, because she’s been a gem throughout the whole process,” DioGuardi said. “I’ve got two people on my mind…her and the baby. She’s given us this incredible gift.”
DioGuardi and McCuddy’s bundle of joy is due in the next few weeks. “We are eagerly awaiting the healthy and happy birth of our son, Greyson James Carroll McCuddy,” she said.
Her father, Joseph DioGuardi told the Daily News that his grandson has a February due date. “We’re all extremely happy,” he said. “We just spent the holidays together, and we are so excited. This will be my first grandchild.”
