Singer Rita Ora is only 26 years, which is considered a very fertile age for women, but she has already frozen her eggs for future use.
The star was on Australia’s TV show ‘Sunrise’ where she revealed for the first time that she froze her eggs following doctor’s advise. She said her doctor suggested the move in her early twenties as her career was taking off, so she did it.
She said: “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 asked me, ‘I think you should freeze your eggs when I was in my early 20s’, that is what he said to me.”
She continued: “He has been my family doctor for a long time and he said you are healthy now and it would be great, why not put them away and then you never have to worry about it again?”
She added: “I just wanted to really be safe. Maybe that is me being crazy.”
