GloZell Green’s Baby Is Here Thanks to a Surrogate
The Internet watched as YouTube personality GloZell Green and her husband Kevin Simon documented their personal fertility issues and their difficult journey toward parenthood on the Awestruck and go90 web series “Glo All In.”
The couple introduced the world to their surrogate, Shawna Johnson, and let viewers into their world as they went to doctor’s appointments, hosted a baby gender reveal, and openly discussed infertility.
Previously, GloZell told Parents.com, “I didn’t know that I was supposed to be embarrassed about infertility, but so many women have come forward since I went public and shared their own issues with me even though they were scared or embarrassed.”
After enduring an endometriosis diagnosis, IVF, and dozens of visits to fertility clinics, GloZell and Kevin officially welcomed a baby girl via surrogate on August 7, 2016. Baby O’Zell Gloriana De Green Simon weighed 8 lbs., 10 oz. and is named after GloZell’s father (O’Zell), mother (Gloria), and sister (DeOnzell).
“I’m excited to learn what message my daughter has for me because she really wants to be here,” GloZell told Parents.com. “We went through a course of three
[IVF] shots a day for two weeks for five months to finally get enough embryos to implant into Shawna. This is a soul who really wants to be here.”
Congrats to the happy family!
