Vicki Belo and Hayden Kho have finally introduced their beautiful baby daughter Scarlet Snow to the public. Today, May 17, on Funfare by Philippine Star editor Ricky Lo, more details have been revealed.
Snow's surrogate mother is a Mexican-American woman whom neither Hayden or Vicki have met.
She was conceived through a method called In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) wherein one will choose a partner from a list that includes backgrounds, traits, and qualifications. Then, the ova is taken from the woman and is fertilized in a laboratory with a sperm. The embryo is then returned to the woman’s uterus. (This is the same method used by Joel Cruz). The whole procedure, according to Funfare sources, cost USD200,000 or more or less 80 million pesos.
During the first six months of Snow, she was fed through breast milk donations by Hayden and Cristalle’s (Vicki's daughter) friends.
Asked how's their teamwork in taking care of Scarlet Snow, Vicki answered that Hayden is better at it, as he definitely knows how to do the feeding, changing diapers, and monitoring sleep, among others.
When asked how Hayden felt the first time he held her in his arms, he said, “Joy. The feeling is indescribable and incomparable. I felt no fear at all, just pure love pouring out profusely from me to her.”
Meanwhile, for Vicki, “I felt that she was God’s gift to me. The moment I saw her I loved her.”
