Yuval and Liran, a gay Israeli couple, want to have a child -- and they are using any help they can get, even from Hollywood. Joan Rivers and Kelly Osbourne have joined a campaign to help the couple by posting photos of themselves holding a sign in Hebrew showing their support.

A Wider Bridge, an organization that connects the Israeli and American LGBT communities, first brought the story of Yuval and Liran to the Internet. The couple started a campaign to legalize surrogacy for gay couples and are trying to raise money to have their baby in the United States.

The “Fashion Police” stars joined the campaign, posting photos of themselves holding A Wider Bridge signs on the organization’s site that read, “We want them to have a baby too” in Hebrew.
