Celebrities who opted for cord blood banking

Celebrity pregnancies and how they choose to play the parental role are widely reported and read about, as most of us seem to have a strong interest in their lives. A whole lot of them have been talking about the placentas and preserving it safely for the future health benefits of their little ones.

After understanding the many virtues of the practice of storing the umbilical cord blood to retrieve stem cells in case of an untoward health complication with the child, many celebrities have turned into advocates of the practice. Here’s a list of some stars who chose to make use of cord blood banking.

Nick Carter

The OG 90’s heartthrob who was the youngest of the Backstreet Boys, Nick Carter and his fitness YouTuber wife Lauren Michelle Kitt welcomed their first born in 2016. Soon after the birth, Nick announced on his Twitter account about storing his kid’s placental blood, even urging fellow parents to #LOOKITUP.

Jason Biggs

The actor best known for his role in American Pie movies and his actress-writer wife Jenny Mollen decided to talk about their decision to bank their son’s umbilical cord in 2014. “Knowing that our baby’s stem cells might be used for our whole family made the decision that much easier,” they reasoned. The two spoke about researching the procedure throughout Jenny’s first pregnancy before they arrived at the decision.

Kourtney Kardashian

No list of lifestyle trends can ever be complete without at least one of the Kardashians on it! And, the eldest of the siblings gets a place on this one. Though Kourtney has not given an overt endorsement to cord blood banking, she and then partner Scott Disick were pictured by Hollywood Life in December 2009 just before the birth of their eldest child carrying a cord blood saving kit.

Giuliana Rancic

E!News presenter Giuliana Rancic and her reality TV personality husband Bill Rancic had been very open about their struggles with fertility as well as her breast cancer. When they were getting ready to welcome their first-born in 2012, the couple told People’s Magazine, “We’ve always taken charge of our own health and wanted to do the same for our son even before he was born.”

Princess Mary

Living her own fairytale of becoming a princess from being a commoner, Denmark’s crown Princess Mary and her husband Crown Prince Frederik are parents to four kids. The princess runs a foundation that closely works with people with hereditary diseases. It came as no surprise then when the couple decided to bank the cord blood of their first born in 2005.

Aishwarya Rai Bachchan

Often referred to as the most beautiful woman in the world, Indian actress Aishwarya Rai Bachchan has said she had harbored the thought of banking cord blood of her child much before she got married. She opted for the process when she gave birth to her daughter in 2011. She told the media that she believed it would be a “treasured gift that will stay with her for life and is an investment for her healthy future”.

Cathy Freeman

The Australian sprinter holds the world record for being the ninth fastest woman of all times. She was fast to make the decision to bank the cord blood of her daughter who was born in 2011. After all, she developed gestational diabetes despite being a very healthy woman. The banking, she said, gave her and husband James Murch “great peace of mind.”

Choi Ji-Woo

Termed by fans as the most beautiful woman in South Korea, this actress has been a household name since the very beginning of the Korean wave. She even worked in Japanese and Chinese shows. She gave birth to her daughter in 2020 at the age of 45 and chose to store the baby’s umbilical cord blood.
