The DailyMail.com insider said in January that the A-list couple had wanted to have a baby together for ‘quite a while’, but their schedules had gotten in the way of their family planning.

They eventually contacted an agency to explore their options and connected with a woman in SoCal who they thought was a good match.

“Priyanka doesn’t have any fertility issues that would prevent her from having a baby, but she’s 39 now, so it’s not getting any easier,” the source said.

“Their busy work schedules also mean it’s difficult for them to be physically together to conceive when she’s ovulating, so they opted for surrogacy some time ago.
