Well known model and writer Rhian Sugden has announced to her thousands of followers that she will have IVF later this year with husband, Oliver Mellor
The 32-year-old posted a message on her Twitter feed about her struggle to conceive with the former Coronation Street actor.
She said in the message: “I received some pretty devastating news this week about my fertility – which means I will be trying IVF later this year.”
She said she wasn’t going to share the news but thought of the other women who are struggling to conceive and thought it might help
“Being told you might not be able to have children is heartbreaking,” she says. “I don’t like the pressure that people put on women to have children and I don’t like the pressure I put on myself.
“I struggle to answer questions about when I am going to start a family – even though I know the questions come from a good place, I hate being asked it. All I can say really is that I’ve tried and I can’t.”
The couple married in Turkey last September after getting engaged in 2014.
