Rita Ora said yes to fertility insurance
During an interview on the Australian breakfast show Sunrise, hosts David Koch and Samantha Armytage asked Rita Ora her opinion about single women having children instead of waiting for the right man and the singer revealed she froze her eggs in her early ’20s on the advice of her family doctor.
This was to make sure she has children, as she confessed: “Me being 27 soon, I thought about this when I was in my early 20s, about kids. Maybe that is me being a hypochondriac, but I have always wanted a big family and my doctor said: ‘I think you should freeze your eggs in your early 20s,’ that is what he said to me.”
Surprised, host Koch interjected: “That is a confronting question from a doctor!” and she replied “I know, I know, but he’s been my family doctor for a long time and he said you are healthy is now and it would be great, why not put them away and then you never have to worry about it again?”
So Rita ora said yes to what everybody calls the ‘fertility insurance’ and underwent the procedure, which is essentially the first step of in vitro fertilisation.
