Bunnie XO Responds to Fans' Opinions on Jelly Roll Surrogacy Plans

Bunnie XO Responds to Fans’ Opinions on Jelly Roll Surrogacy Plans

Bunnie XO has a pointed message for those bringing negativity into the conversation about her plans to expand her family with her husband, Jelly Roll.

The couple, married since 2016, announced last month their intent to have a child together.

The Dumb Blonde podcast host shared a screenshot of a negative comment on Facebook on Saturday, July 6. While the name of the person who posted the comment was cropped out, their message—which critiqued Bunnie’s explanation that she and Jelly Roll plan to use a surrogate—was fully visible.

The comment suggested that Bunnie had chosen the surrogate route to preserve her “perfect body” rather than experiencing the “natural experience of motherhood.”

“This is so gross. You guys think I don’t want to carry because of my body lol,” Bunnie wrote in her Facebook post accompanying the screenshot.

As a stepmom to Jelly Roll’s daughter and son, Bunnie explained she is “scared” of being pregnant again. She revealed she’s had two ectopic pregnancies and miscarriages, and at her current age, she doesn’t want to risk going through that again. Additionally, she acknowledged that their fast-paced life doesn’t allow for such a lengthy and uncertain process.

“Please watch how you say things to people on the internet,” her post continued. “You aren’t in their shoes, you haven’t fought their battles, and you know nothing of the journey we’ve been through, only what we’ve told you. This right here is exactly why I won’t be posting our journey anymore. 🤍.”

Earlier on Saturday, Bunnie shared a clip from one of her recent podcast recordings, further detailing why she and Jelly Roll, born Jason DeFord, chose to use a surrogate.

In the clip, she revealed that they began their “IVF journey” in 2019. At that time, Bunnie said she “just wasn’t ready” as she was battling depression and “still figuring out sobriety.” Five years later, she added, “We are not even the same humans we were in 2019.”

While Bunnie noted that they initially received a lot of love and support in response to their family expansion announcement, negative comments soon began to surface.

“From here on out, I want to keep it private,” she said in the podcast clip. “I just want something that’s ours.”
