Rumour: Chow Yun Fatt offering $200k for surrogate mom

Actor Chow Yun Fatt is offering S$200,000 for a surrogate mother, reported a Hong Kong news agency.

It was said that the he was fulfilling his 90-year-old mother's wish of having a grandchild.

In 1991, his wife, Singaporean Jasmine Tan, suffered from a miscarriage and they've been trying for a child ever since, reported Shin Min daily.

According to the evening newspaper, it took Ms Tan a number of years to tide over the trauma; hence, he did not dare raise the issue of a child. Yet, while he was trying to be an understanding husband, his mother was urging for a grandchild, said the same news source.

The couple have since considered several possible methods including artificial insemination as well as hiring a surrogate mother.
