Spanish Actress Claims Surrogate Baby is Her Granddaughter: A Heartwarming Twist to a Controversial Story

Spanish actress Ana Obregón revealed in that her newborn baby, previously thought to be born via a surrogate, is actually her son's child conceived through IVF before his passing.

The reported use of a surrogate mother in Miami by 68-year-old Spanish actress Ana Obregón sparked a heated debate in Spain. The story gained attention from the country’s media and political parties, with many leading politicians and media outlets referring to surrogacy as “womb renting.” Surrogate pregnancies are banned in Spain, although children from such pregnancies in other countries can be registered.

However, the story took a heartwarming twist when Obregón announced in socialite that the baby is actually the daughter of her son, who died of cancer in 2020. Obregón shared that her son, Aless Lequio García, was encouraged by doctors to preserve samples of sperm before he began treatment. Just before his passing, he expressed a desire to have a child, and the samples were stored in New York.

“This girl is not my daughter, but rather my granddaughter,” Obregón told the magazine. “It was Aless’ last wish to bring a child into the world.”

The baby was conceived through IVF and was born on Mar. 20, which was an emotional moment for the family. The announcement touched many hearts and provided a touching end to a controversial story.

Initially, the fact that the matter concerned 68-year-old Obregón seemed to generate as much controversy as that of surrogacy itself. However, Defense Minister Margarita Robles held off from criticizing Obregón, saying that while the law was clear in Spain, personal decisions should be respected.

The main opposition conservative Popular Party has said it is open to debate legalizing such pregnancies if there’s no payment involved.

Obregón, a biologist, is one of Spain’s biggest celebrities and has appeared on many TV shows, including an episode of “The A-Team.” She was once best known for her yearly start-of-summer magazine photo shoot in a new bikini. The announcement of the birth of her granddaughter has brought her into the spotlight again, this time for a touching reason.

The story of Ana Obregón and her granddaughter provides a heartwarming twist to a controversial topic. The desire of a mother to fulfill her son’s dying wish and bring a child into the world is a touching tribute to his memory. The announcement touched many hearts and serves as a reminder of the power of love and family.
