After the launch of their Baby Daddies Facebook page in 2016, Auckland-based Christian Newman, 34, and husband Mark Edwards, 35  started to become a social media sensation. At first inundated with responses, after a three-month vetting process, all the potential surrogates had dropped out.  The couple eventually found a suitable surrogate, 32-year-old paramedic Aleisha Hart from Nelson, in June 2016.  Then in August, Newman’s 26 year old sister-in-law in New York stepped in to provide eggs. Avid Instagram users, Christian documented every step of their IVF journey on social media, including the arrival of their son, Francis Newman-Edwards on June 6 after a four year journey. They have been the subject of a TV special and various magazine features. Christian will talk about what they learned along the way.
