All of us have our own reasons for wanting to be healthier and for actress Rebel Wilson, it was the desire to have children in the future.
Wilson, who was propelled to stardom in the breakout role of Fat Amy in Pitch Perfect recently lost 65 pounds. Last year, the actress declared 2020 a year of health and she stuck to her goals. Speaking in a recent Instagram Live, she explained what spurred her decision.
“That is such a massive question, but I’m going to try to answer it for you,” she responded to the fan question. “It first started when I was looking into fertility stuff and the doctor was like, ‘Well, you’d have a much better chance if you were healthier.’”
Wilson admitted that she was a bit surprised by the doctor’s comments but she ultimately chose to focus on improving her health.
“That’s kind of what started it, if I lost some excess weight, it would give me a better chance for freezing eggs and have the eggs be a better quality,” she said. “So that’s what, at first, it wasn’t even really myself, it was more thinking of the future mini-me, really.”
The actress has been very open and honest online about not only her weight loss journey but also her fertility struggles, as reported by Buzzfeed.
She wrote, “To all the women out there struggling with fertility, I feel ya. The universe works in mysterious ways and sometimes it all doesn’t make sense…but I hope there’s light about to shine through all the dark clouds.”
