Mom Carries Her Son’s Baby And The Story Behind It Is Beautiful


Kayla Jones, 29 from Texarkana, Arkansas, just wanted to start a family with her husband Cody. Unfortunately she had undergone a partial hysterectomy aged just 17, which made her dream very difficult to realize.

The solution was to find a surrogate mother. “My ovaries did not have to be removed so I am still able to have a child biologically mine, but I am unable to carry the child myself,” she told Love What Matters. “That’s why my husband and I had to use a surrogate.”

Having tried unsuccessfully to find a suitable candidate, the couple decided to look a little closer to home. “My husband and I married in 2012 and my mother-in-law always joked about being our surrogate,” Kayla explained. “After a couple of our surrogate options did not work out, we started to take my mother-in-law more seriously.”

After a lot of tests, research and skeptical doctors, Cody’s mother Patty was cleared to carry the couple’s child. It didn’t work out the first time around. “We were devastated but decided to give it one more try,” she said. “In May 2017 we found out we were pregnant!”

7 months later, their baby boy Kross Allen Jones was born, delivered by C-section. “I am so amazed at this sweet miracle. Having him via surrogacy was not always easy, and definitely not easy for Patty, but having him here makes all the hard days worth it.”
