Do surrogate babies look like the parents?

By Andrea Rodrigo.
Last Update: 02/19/2018

Yes, as long as the embryo or embryos are created using their eggs and sperm. If donor eggs and/or sperm were needed, then the resulting child will not share his or her genes with them.

In any case, when matching a donor to a couple of intended parents, patient coordinators always choose a donor who resembles the intended mother and/or father as much as possible.
