He and his (now ex-) partner, Richie Jackson, hired a surrogate mother to bear their child. The boy, Jackson Foo Wong, was one of a set of twins born on May 28, 2000. The child's twin, Boaz Dov Wong, died at birth, the result of twin-to-twin transfusion syndrome. Wong wrote a book, Following Foo: the Electronic Adventures of the Chestnut Man, about the experience.
