US model and mother-of-two Chrissy Teigen has told People magazine she is ‘coming to terms’ with not being able to carry a child again
The 35-year-old celebrity said she felt ‘so healthy’ and it was ‘really difficult’ for her to comprehend why her uterus was working against her but she did not see it as a failure.
She said: “I just think of it as how blessed I am already, and also there are so many ways to have a child nowadays, whether it’s surrogacy or adoption.”
She hopes that by telling her story and being open about her journey she will be able to help others come to terms with their fertility and access treatment easier.
She said: “For me, what is really important is being able to make sure that everybody has access to those ways and making sure that people are able to make their dreams come true. It would just be a beautiful thing. It is so incredibly expensive to freeze your own eggs and harvest them. IVF isn’t an option for a lot of people and it needs to be. It shouldn’t be such an expensive endeavour for a woman trying to have a child.”
Tragically, Chrissy and her husband John Legend, lost their third child, Jack at just 20 weeks into a natural pregnancy.
The news devastated the couple after so much joy in having the ‘miracle natural pregnancy’.
Chrissy said she could not imagine life without more children and she plans to help as many people as she can on their own fertility journey.
