‘My baby news’

THE TV PER­SON­AL­ITY GETS CAN­DID ABOUT HER PLANS FOR A FU­TURE FAM­ILY

WHO - - News -

LOVE IS­LAND HOST SO­PHIE MONK has un­der­gone surgery and the star­let has taken to In­sta­gram to share the lat­est step on her quest to be­come a mother.

“So I’m back in this lovely red car­pet out­fit,” she ex­plained to the cam­era on Dec. 3. “I haven’t told any­one but over the last 14 days I have been in­ject­ing my­self to freeze my eggs,” she con­tin­ued, don­ning an oxy­gen mask and a hospi­tal gown.

“I’m go­ing to check in a sec­ond to see how many I’ve laid. Hope­fully it’s a lot. Wish me luck!” Shortly after her posts, Monk spoke to WHO and de­clared she was in a safe, grate­ful state after vis­it­ing Monash IVF fer­til­ity clinic.

“If it wasn’t for Monash and the de­sire to freeze my eggs, I would have never known that I had mild en­dometrio­sis,” she said. “I want women to know that if I hadn’t made this dis­cov­ery, freez­ing my eggs and try­ing to have a baby could have been a very dif­fi­cult process. In­stead I have ended up with a baker’s dozen!”

The singer, who has been dat­ing boyfriend Joshua Gross for five months, also shared a spe­cial mes­sage to any fans who may be hav­ing health prob­lems.

“I en­cour­age every­one who is ex­pe­ri­enc­ing a painful cy­cle to at the very least speak to their GP.”

In May, Monk told WHO she was very ex­cited to have a baby in the fu­ture and con­fessed she would con­sider freez­ing her eggs. “I am go­ing to freeze my eggs when I get back from Spain – it’s all booked in,” she re­vealed. “I would never say never, but I would like to try to have a part­ner ... so it’s not all on me.”
