Twins Separated at Birth: Divorce and Surrogacy

David Tutera, host of "My Fair Wedding", filed for divorce in April 2013. At the time a surrogate was pregnant with the couple's twins. Tutera is the biological father of the daughter, Cielo, and Tutera's ex, Ryan Jurica, is the biological father of the son, Cedric.

Tutera and Jurica have decided to raise the twins separately. Tutera will raise his daughter in California and Jurica will raise his son in Connecticut. This decision has left many thinking of the plot of "The Parent Trap."

The two parents have stated they plan to allow the two siblings to visit. Still, many have expressed disgust with the former couple's decision to separate the twins at all, calling the two selfish. Many Illinois laws, too, favor siblings remaining together. Illinois law even has provisions that give siblings the right to sibling visitation.
