Women who are brave enough to talk about their experience of miscarriage and other fertility problems often mention feelings of inadequacy and of being alone in the struggle. But the reality is that struggling to have children is much more common than we think.
Two famous women have bravely shared details of their fertility journeys recently. One of them is Heidi Montag, best known for her appearance on the reality show 'The Hills.' Montag already has one son with her husband Spencer Pratt and the couple are trying for a second baby. The 35-year-old has been open about their difficulties, having failed to conceive after trying for more than a year. Back in April of 2021 Montag underwent surgery to have polyps removed from her uterus in the hopes it would improve their chances. In a recent Instagram post, she shared a photo of herself and her son with the caption "So thankful for my angel I never thought it would be so hard trying to have another. I am trusting God’s plan and if we only have one I am so thankful for this miracle!”
Another celeb opening up about her struggles with fertility is Brittany Daniel. The actress is known for starring in the '90s tv show 'Sweet Valley High' alongside her twin sister, Cynthia Daniel. Brittany underwent a difficult battle with stage IV non-Hodgkin's lymphoma and was told she may never be able to have children on her own. This is when her sister Cynthia stepped in and offered to donate her eggs to her sister. "I saw it as such a simple gift I could give to her," Cynthia said. "I know Brittany would do it in a split second for me. And we've always shared everything, so why not this?" Brittany and her husband gave birth to their daughter Hope in October of 2021.
