New Dancing With The Stars contestant Marissa Jaret Winokur has confirmed she’s preparing to become a first-time mother.
The 35-year-old actress and her husband, King of the Hill writer Judah Miller, will become parents by a surrogate in four months.
Winokur underwent a hysterectomy in 2000 to help her beat cervical cancer, and the procedure robbed her of the chance to carry a child herself - but she was able to freeze some of her eggs.
Winokur tells website People.com, "2008 is beginning to be the best year of my life.
"I don’t care if I win or lose Dancing With The Stars because I know when the show is over I will have the best prize - a baby.
"After cancer I never thought I’d have a baby. This is truly the best time of my life."
