Actress Jamie Chung says she chose surrogacy to welcome twins due to career concerns


Actress Jamie Chung is opening up about her decision to use a surrogate to welcome twin boys with her husband Bryan Greenberg, which she says was motivated, in part, by her career.

“People probably think, ‘Oh, she’s so vain. She didn’t want to get pregnant,’ and it’s much more complicated than that,” Chung told the US Today show.

“For me, personally, and I will leave it at this, it’s like, I worked my a– off my entire life to get where I am. I don’t want to lose opportunities. I don’t want to be resentful.”

Chung and Greenberg’s twins are now seven-months-old. The duo announced they had become parents last October.

“I was terrified of becoming pregnant. I was terrified of putting my life on hold for two-plus years,” she admitted. “In my industry, it feels like you’re easily forgotten if you don’t work within the next month of your last job. Things are so quickly paced in what we do. So it’s a compromise that we made together as a couple.”

Chung broke through by appearing on MTV’s The Real World: San Diego, and has since starred in multiple movies and television series, including Lovecraft Country and Dexter: New Blood.

Chung said she kept the news quiet for a while because she didn’t want to be judged.

“I think there’s a little bit of shame. It’s still not a very common thing and we weren’t ready for judgment,” she said. “We really just did it to protect ourselves. We announced things when we were ready to.”
