In an interview with Men's Health, Underwood shared how he and Brown are expecting a baby boy via surrogate after experiencing fertility struggles. Underwood had an extremely low sperm count but was able to regain his fertility via "sperm rehab."

Underwood and Brown's surrogate is now due to give birth to their son in October. The couple first found an egg donor, whose fertilized embryo was transferred into the surrogate.

Underwood and Brown looked for an egg donor who was spontaneous and adventurous.

"Some people want blue eyes and blond hair," Underwood said. "We want somebody deep and cool. I believe in nature versus nurture. So give us the basics and we can show this kid love."

Underwood came to fame as a contestant in Becca Kufrin's season of The Bachelorette and later starred in The Bachelor Season 23. He came out as gay in 2021.
