A source told us, "Alexis has now decided on having a baby via a surrogate, and Martha is fully supportive."
The identity of the surrogate is not known. A rep for Martha and Alexis would say only, "We do not comment on personal matters."
However Alexis, who co-hosts the Hallmark Channel show "Whatever With Alexis and Jennifer" with Jennifer Koppelman Hutt, has been very vocal in the past about her desire for a child. She previously revealed that she'd been trying to get pregnant for two years, spending up to $27,000 a month on fertility treatments.
Alexis, who divorced attorney John Cuti in 2004, told People in 2007, "I'm single now, but having my own kid is the most important thing in my life, so I am trying everything I can: fancy doctors, expensive drugs, high-tech procedures . . .
"When I didn't respond to the drugs after three months, they basically said, 'Don't bother,' and kept asking, 'Why don't you use a donor egg?' Finally, I said, 'You're fired.' "
