The star welcomed Rockwell via gestational surrogacy in 2015, and shortly after his arrival she reflected on her decision to turn to surrogacy.

Chatting to People, she said: "It just seemed like the right option for me because I was working and I didn't know when I was going to be able to stop."

"I decided that was probably the best solution for me, and it turned out to be great."

She continued: "I didn't realize how quickly babies progress. Very basic things that you just take for granted. They're just this little lump of flesh, and then all the sudden they're turning around, they're observing you and they're smiling and they're interacting. It's a magical experience."
