Hav­ing a baby

NEXT (New Zealand) - - Cover Story -

On screen and in her per­sonal life, there is also the in­evitable pres­sure that comes on women in their 30s who don’t have chil­dren. “Yeah… try be­ing late 30s! That’s when ev­ery­body starts to panic,” laughs Hay­ley.

In July she in­ter­viewed Dr Mary Bird­sall, re­veal­ing to Break­fast view­ers that she had per­son­ally vis­ited the fer­til­ity spe­cial­ist to dis­cuss her own re­pro­duc­tive fu­ture and op­tions. It was some­thing that her mum Robin had en­cour­aged her to do and it’s a topic that Hay­ley seems al­most re­signed to dis­cuss.

“Ev­ery sin­gle per­son wants to know what I’m do­ing with my womb at the mo­ment… Be­cause I am ‘of the age,’” she ad­mits with a sigh. “I guess it’s fear in a way, be­cause there is a cer­tain age that you have to make those de­ci­sions.”

Right now, she’s pre­par­ing her­self for ev­ery al­ter­na­tive. Not hav­ing a part­ner, jokes Hay­ley, “does make it slightly dif­fi­cult!”
