Maria Menounos Freezing Her Eggs Instead of Trying To Get PregnantTheMommyologist
She’s 33-years old, has been in a loving and committed relationship with Kevin Ungaro for over 10 years, and she definitely wants children, but for the time being, Maria Menounos has no plans to get pregnant.
While sitting with her parents on Dr. Drew’s Lifechangers earlier today, Maria announced that she plans on freezing her eggs to use down the road at a later date. She said, “I have decided I am going to have kids but to make it realistic, because I’m not going to do it for a few years, we’re going to freeze our eggs so that we have no problems down the line.”
Though Maria is nearing her mid-thirties, she says that she has a “couple more years of work” she wants to do before doing the whole kid thing. She figures that she will eliminate some of the possibility for fertility problems by freezing her eggs now.
She’s also not too keen on the subject of marriage and said, “When I have kids, maybe I’ll do it then. But for me and Kevin, it’s been so long that in our minds we are and we always have been [married]. Marriage can be a beautiful thing for some people but I don’t think it should be a pre-requisite or something that’s forced on people. We’re happy, it’s working. I’m not really a traditional person anyway.”
Maria’s not the only person in Hollywood who plans to use or has sought help with fertility. You can see celebs who have struggled to conceive here.
