Angela Bassett’s Twins Are Way Older Now & She’s Just Made Son’s Dream Come True
Time…it sure does come at us fast, right? Well, at least with the exception of Angela Bassett’s anti-aging sexy physique at 60 years young…but other than that, time FLIES – her and actor husband, Courtney B. Vance’s, twins are proof of this.
That Was Then…
Seems like it was just yesterday that Bassett and Vance were sitting on Oprah Winfrey’s talk show in 2007, with their then toddler fraternal twins- daughter, Bronwyn Golden, and son, Slater Josiah. At that time, Angela and Courtney revealed the many struggles thy had conceiving. They’d tried to do so for seven years straight, and Angela even used IVF treatments, but to no avail.
The reality that she may never get pregnant took a toll on her emotionally and psychologically:
“I was devastated when it didn’t happen [again and again]. I had to remain hopeful and resilient and, ‘Okay, let’s do it again’,” Bassett told Winfrey.
It wasn’t until a friend hipped Vance and Bassett to the idea of surrogacy, that they’d finally found hope. A surrogate mother carried their twin babies, but the babies only have the DNA of Angela and Courtney.
Thankfully, Bronwyn and Slater made their grand entrance into the world just fine and wait ’til y’all see how much the teenagers have grown since…
