Second Child Through Surrogacy

Rebecca is ABC News’ chief business, technology, and economics correspondent

She recently shared her decade-long struggle with infertility and the journey to welcome her second child, Leo, through surrogacy

Despite fracking challenges, including multiple rounds of in-vitro fertilization (IVF) and unexplained infertility, Rebecca and her partner Matt decided on surrogacy after a miscarriage

Deciding to use surrogacy was hard for Rebecca and her husband because it is emotionally challenging, and it takes time to find the right person to be a surrogate

Rebecca was worried about asking someone to make such a big commitment. 

However, after talking with their surrogate and understanding how she saw it as a meaningful gift, they decided to go ahead with surrogacy

The real happiness came when they saw their son Leo being born in November

It felt like a surreal and magical experience for them. 

Rebecca made it clear how thankful they are to their surrogate, understanding that she played a crucial role in making their family of four a reality. 


Matthew was born in 1971. He is 52 years old.

Net Worth

As an American journalist and former banker, Matthew's wife Rebecca's net worth is about $98 million.
