Yet another celebrity undergoing advanced fertility treatments!

People reported a couple of days ago that Angela Bassett (47) is expecting twins via a surrogate carrier.

"They are expecting twins via a surrogate," says a source close to the 47-year-old star of How Stella Got Her Groove Back and What's Love Got to Do With It.

The source adds: "The babies are due in a couple months."

A publicist for Bassett had no comment.
Now they are not commenting on the source of the oocytes but we can speculate that the source of the oocytes is from an oocyte donor. Obviously this is just speculation but at 47 twin pregnancy would be an extremely unusual event.
this is the typical example of a situation in which celebrities while (rightfully) trying to protect their privacy end up creating false expectations for the public. I would equate it to the statement " I did not have plastic surgery".
