Los Angeles, June 23 (IANS) Model Caprice Bourret says her sons Jax and Jett, one of whom was born via a surrogate a few weeks before she gave birth to the other, are being raised as twins with the same birthday.
The 43-year-old model and partner Ty Comfort welcomed a son into the world just weeks after their surrogate gave them another son in August 2013, and she has decided to give the boys the same birthday, reports femalefirst.co.uk.
“If anyone asks, are they twins? I always reply, yes. I need quite a long time to tell my story and they look so close in age it is easier to say they are twins. When it comes to their birthdays, I will find an official date and we’ll celebrate on the same day,” Bourret told Hello! magazine.
However, Bourret, who has never publicly revealed which of the boys she gave birth to, will tell her sons “the truth” as they grow older and allow them to decide if they want to continue to celebrate their birthdays together.
She said: “As they get older, it will be up to them if they prefer separate birthdays. So yes, I will tell them the truth eventually, but I don’t think it will affect them in a bad way or make them feel any different.
“I love these boys so much, more than my own life, and I’m their biological mother.”
