Lisa Hochstein Expecting Via Surrogate After Long Infertility Struggle

Time to celebrate! After years of struggling to conceive, Real Housewives of Miami star Lisa Hochstein is finally going to be a mother. The Bravo reality star and her plastic surgeon husband Lenny Hochstein are expecting their first child via a surrogate, Lisa confirms exclusively to Us Weekly.

As fans of the series know, the couple’s happy news comes after three miscarriages and four failed IVF attempts. 

“It did not feel real, almost unbelievable!” the petite Housewife, 32, tells Us of learning they were finally expecting. “Although I was beyond excited and overjoyed, we did not want to get our hopes up too high until we passed the first trimester.”

After struggling to conceive for years, and documenting some of the painful process on seasons two and three of the Bravo show, Lisa explains they considered this latest round their “last resort.”

“We felt that we tried almost every option available to us except surrogacy,” she explains. “Adoption was a consideration if this didn’t work.”

Even with a baby on the way, the mom-to-be admits that it “was a difficult decision” to choose the surrogate route. “Hopefully in the future I will have this opportunity,” she tells Us of becoming pregnant herself.
