Seven kids already won’t stop Sara Evans from continuing to think big! Evans has three children from her first marriage and four kids that became part of her family when she wed Alabama football legend Jay Barker. Now, she tells Chicago radio station US 99.5, “We want a baby together so bad. I just have to figure out the right time because I despise pregnancy. I’m begging Jay to let us hire a surrogate, but he’s not comfortable with that.” Sara adds, “If I did it, I would want it to be somebody I knew, like one of my sisters. I would want it to be a friend, or a sister, that I knew I could trust, and that they wouldn’t run off with my baby. I wanted one of my sisters to do it. They’re great. They’re wonderful, healthy, beautiful young women. They were both, when I mentioned it, like, ‘Oh, that’s so weird, no way, I would never …’” Funny how things can change, though. Evans quips, “I said, ‘I’ll give you 20 grand,’ and they started fighting over who was going to get to do it! So then I said, ‘Why don’t you both do it and then Jay and I can have two children…’ that would be hysterical. And then I could continue to drink wine, stay skinny, have fun, and also have this beautiful baby.”
