This man’s mother is having his baby. You might think this is some incredibly dark and disturbing tale of incest and illegal activities, but it’s actually not. It’s something strange, but quite sweet. Like a mother helping her son start a family with his loving wife. It’s a lot more complicated than you’d ever imagine, but before you immediately judge, listen to their story.
This is Kayla Jones and her husband Cody. This lovely couple from Arkansas wanted to start a family together, but there was a complication in the process before it even started. You see, Kayla had a partial hysterectomy when she was just 17-years-old, which makes it incredibly difficult for her to carry out a pregnancy.
The couple’s next logical step was to search out a surrogate for their child, but after a long search, it ended up fruitless. Cody’s mother, however agreed to volunteer for the job, and that’s how this whole thing got started.
“My husband and I married in 2012 and my mother-in-law always joked about being our surrogate,” Kayla explained. “After a couple of our surrogate options did not work out, we started to take my mother-in-law more seriously.”
Eventually, the pair agreed to allow Cody’s mom, Patty carry the child for them. Biologically it is still their baby, as the ovaries and sperm used are Cody and Kayla’s but they needed an “oven” for their “bun.” That’s where Patty came in.
After visiting several doctors, Patty was cleared to carry the child and seven months later, she gave birth to Cody and Kayla’s son, Kross Allen Jones via C-section.
And look, they know their situation has been a bit unusual. “Some people find it ‘weird’ but if they understood the process it might not seem so weird to them,” Kayla said.
So far the newborn is in good health and Patty has gotten back to work after a few weeks of resting to recover from the pregnancy. It all worked out in the end, despite being a bit peculiar.
