By now, you're probably aware that LeAnn Rimes really wants to have a baby.
She's discussed her desire to get knocked up in interviews, on her Instagram page, and at great length in her disastrous reality show with Eddie Cibrian.
Sadly, LeAnn and Eddie have reportedly experienced trouble conceiving. Now, Star magazine is reporting that the couple has decided to take other measures.
According to the tabloid, Rimes and Cibrian have told their family and friends that if LeAnn isn't pregnant by Christmas, she and Eddie will begin the search for a surrogate.
“Being a stepmother to Eddie’s boys made LeAnn realize she doesn’t have to give birth to her own child to be a mom," says one insider. "It will happen one way or another.”
LeAnn has reportedly tried everything from acupuncture to IVF in her effort to get pregnant, and nothing has worked.
She and Eddie have spared no expense, and sources say they shelled out major bucks to hire the same naturopathy that helped Gwen Stefani and Jewel conceive.
Insiders say LeAnn loves being a stepmom and the experience has made her even more eager to have kids of her own.
The Christmas deadline is reportedly the result of LeAnn's touring and promotions for her upcoming album of holiday music. Sources say one way or another, the singer will become a mom in 2016.
