Frankie Bridge thought about being a surrogate mother for her sister when she struggled to conceive.
The mum-of-two floated the idea to her sister Victoria, who now has twin boys.
Victoria said she ‘wouldn’t feel comfortable’ asking Frankie to carry her baby, and the former The Saturdays singer agreed.
She said on Thursday’s Loose Women that she would find it difficult ‘mentally’ to go through a pregnancy and then have her sister raise the child.
Speaking to panellists Christine Lampard, Brenda Edwards and Jane Moore, the TV star said: ‘I was closely in this situation with my sister. She now has twin boys so it’s all worked out in the end but we did have this point where I was like, “Would you ask me to be a surrogate?” because I don’t know how I feel about it.
‘She said, “I don’t know if I’d feel comfortable, we’re so close. I’d rather ask an outside person.”‘
Frankie continued: ‘I find it hard because I’m not a good pregnant person anyway but also I feel I would be emotionally attached to that baby.
‘I feel like it would be hard to carry a baby and then hand them over.
‘Yes, they would be my niece or nephew, but not really have anything to do with them after that. I’m not sure mentally how I would deal with that.’
Brenda shared that she had offered to be a surrogate for a friend who was in the same situation as Victoria, but was unable to as she had started her menopause.
Christine said she wasn’t sure what she would decide but if it was a close family member she would consider it.
Asked what her husband Wayne Bridge would think of her being a surrogate, Frankie reckoned he would be ‘up for it’ because he knows of her and Victoria’s close relationship.
Loose Women airs weekdays from 12.30pm on ITV.
