Amy Smart reveals daughter was carried by surrogate


Amy Smart has revealed that she and her husband Carter Oosterhouse have welcomed a daughter, thanks to a surrogate.

The Just Friends actress, who has struggled to have a child in the past, wrote on Instagram: "One month ago today, Dec. 26th our amazing beautiful daughter came into this world."

Alongside the adorable photo of baby Flora dressed in pink, Amy added: "Feeling so grateful to have her in my arms... after years of fertility struggles I give thanks today to our kind, loving surrogate for carrying her."

This comes after Amy's post just before New Year's Eve, where she shared a photo of a newborn Flora in the hospital. "It is with great gratitude and pleasure to welcome our little girl Flora to the world," she captioned the photo. "What a blessed way to bring in 2017 Amen and Thank You God for this special new life!!"

HGTV host Carter, 40, also shared the couple's exciting news via Instagram, writing a caption alongside the family photo saying: "We are so excited to announce the birth of our little lady...Flora! We love you more than you know and can't wait to experience the journey. What a blessing..."

It came as a surprise when the two announced the arrival of their daughter, after they had never mentioned plans to have any children.

The couple got married back in 2011 in an intimate ceremony in Michigan, USA after starting to date in 2010 and getting engaged five months later.
