Anastasia Pollock had to get an emergency surgery after her daughter was born a few years ago that prevents her from having any more children. Brokenhearted, she searched for a solution so that she could grow her family. Her fertility clinic set up a meeting with Emily Brady. A mother herself, Emily was interested in becoming a gestational carrier. The only way she can get pregnant is through IVF. She decided that becoming a gestational carrier would enable her to grow her family in the future. The two hit it off and Emily became a gestational carrier for Anastasia and her husband Brady. Baby boy Orion Brady Christos Pollock was born healthy, weighing 7 lbs 14 oz just a few weeks ago. He is a happy baby that is loved by his family, but also by Emily and hers. Many people have asked Emily when she will go in for her own IVF treatment and she says she is giving her body time to heal, but hopes to start thinking about it sometime in the next year or so.
