Good news. Lisa Hochstein, star of “The Real Housewives of Miami” is expecting a baby via surrogate!
Lisa announced the news in an interview with US Weekly. No surprise, Lisa and her hubby, Dr. Leonard (Lenny) Hochstein went the surrogate route. The couple shared their struggles to conceive on their Bravo reality show. The Hochstein’s had been trying to expand their family for a number of years and explored a variety of ways of doing so. Lisa tells the site,
“We felt that we tried almost every option available to us except surrogacy.” Lisa continued, “Adoption was a consideration if this didn’t work.”
Although thrilled over the fact that she was indeed having a child via surrogate, Lisa remained apprehensive until the first trimester passed.
“Although I was beyond excited and overjoyed, we did not want to get our hopes up too high until we passed the first trimester.”
Their first baby is due in August, and Lisa is still in shock over the amazing news.
“It did not feel real, almost unbelievable!”
Congrats to Lisa and Lenny!
