Australian supermodel Elle Macpherson, known commonly at the height of her career as "The Body", will be having a baby with husband billionaire Jeffrey Soffer via surrogacy, reports Woman's Day Australia.

Elle, who turns 51 this Sunday, has apparently been trying to have a child with Jeffrey since they were married in the summer of 2013 but has not met with any success so far.

"They realised after a few months that having a baby naturally was a lost cause and they barely discussed adoption – they agreed on surrogacy quite quickly," a close insider told Woman's Day.

"Elle is thanking her lucky stars she had the foresight to freeze her eggs years ago," added this source.

The surrogate mother has requested that her identity remained undisclosed, but it has been reported that she is in her thirties and has two children.

Elle herself also already has two sons of her own, whom she shares custody of with ex partner Arpad Busson – 17-year-old Arpad Flynn Alexander Busson and 12-year-old Aurelius Cy Andrea Busson. Jeffrey too has two daughters and a son.

Congratulations, Elle and Jeffrey! We look forward to welcoming your new addition to the family.
