Rebel Wilson has frozen her eggs so that she can potentially become a mother when the time is right.
The Isn’t It Romantic star, 39, who is currently believed to be single, admitted during an interview on Australia’s Kyle and Jackie O Show that she’s taken things into her own hands by visiting a fertility clinic.
When host Kyle Sandilands opened the interview with the somewhat random question “Are you getting sexy time in?, Rebel replied: “I’ve just come from the fertility clinic, actually! Which means no time for sexy time.”
Asked why she was at the clinic, Rebel answered: “Because it’s a back-up plan. Career women should have options, you know?”
Kylie then suggested the screen star should “get a few (eggs) frozen”, to which Rebel said “Yes”, before adding: “A lot of women, especially in their 30s or if they can in their 40s, should think about doing it now. I know a lot of my friends here in Hollywood are doing it.”
Freezing eggs or embryos has become a common practice in recent years, with women who are keen to start a family after the age when their fertility naturally declines turning to the practice to increase their chances of becoming a parent later in life.
Other stars who have spoken out about freezing their eggs include Chrissy Teigen, Jamie Chung and Halsey.
