'The Big Bang Theory' star Jim Parsons is fighting incorrect claims from tabloid's that claim he is looking to start a family and find a surrogate mother
Jim Parsons, star of the hit nerd comedy 'The Big Bang Theory', has found the funny side in wrong tabloid reports, claiming that he has been to Neil Patrick Harris for advice about getting a surrogate parent in order to start a family. 40-year-old Parsons has been part of an 11-year relationship with his boyfriend Todd Spiewak, and despite claims that the two were planning to get married, Parsons has denied these claims. Using this as a basis, Parsons has gone on to launch a rant against incorrect tabloid journalism.

"The most recent one is that we're gonna get a surrogate.
