Tareq and Michaele Salahi are on the hunt for a nice clean womb ... because the alleged White House crashers are planning to have a baby through a surrogate mom!!!
The former "Real Housewives of D.C." stars met with professionals at the Northern Virginia Center for Surrogate Parenting a few days ago in the hopes of getting the process underway ASAP.
Michaele tells TMZ she wants to go with a surrogate because she suffers from multiple sclerosis ... and she worries that her condition combined with her age (45) ... is not safe for a baby.
Michael adds, "I'm overjoyed with the hope of starting a family and the blessing of love and peace a child will bring to our lives."
