Jamie Chung reveled that she chose a surrogate to carry her twin boys in fear that getting pregnant would have ruined her career.

“I was terrified of becoming pregnant,” Chung told TODAY Parents. “I was terrified of putting my life on hold for two-plus years. In my industry, it feels like you’re easily forgotten if you don’t work within the next month of your last job. Things are so quickly paced in what we do. So it’s a compromise that we made together as a couple.”

Nine months after the arrival of their two sons, Chung and her husband, Bryan Greenberg, divulged the reason why they used a surrogate. The Dexter: New Blood actress explained it was a “compromise” that she and her husband “made together as a couple.”

“I think there’s a little bit of shame. It’s still not a very common thing and we weren’t ready for judgment,” Chung said. “We really just did it to protect ourselves. We announced things when we were ready to.”
