Jamie Chung who played true-crime podcaster Molly Park in the latest season of Dexter: New Blood and her husband, actor Bryan Greenberg, surprised everyone on October of 2021, when they announced the birth of their twin boys.

In a new interview with TODAY.com, the actress talked about the decision to expand their family through surrogacy. Read more below!

“I was terrified of becoming pregnant. I was terrified of putting my life on hold for two-plus years. 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.”

Jamie noted that the stigma surrounding surrogacy is pervasive. It’s one of the reasons she kept the pregnancy private.

“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 explained. “We really just did it to protect ourselves. We announced things when we were ready to."

“People probably think, 'Oh, she's so vain. She didn't want to get pregnant,' and it's much more complicated than that. For me, personally, and I will leave it at this, it’s like, I worked my ass off my entire life to get where I am,” Chung said. “I don’t want to lose opportunities. I don’t want to be resentful.”
