- Vicky Pattison reveals she wants a family
- She opens up about deciding to freeze her eggs
- Pattison shares a new makeup-free selfie
Vicky Pattison recently made a big decision when it comes to her future fertility plans! On Monday, the British television personality took to Instagram to share that she has officially begun the process of having her eggs frozen, explaining what led her to this decision.
Pattison says her "heart wants to have children"
Pattison began by explaining how she originally didn't want to have kids, but her thoughts on starting a family changed over the years. "The late nights & bar hopping didn't do it for me anymore.. I wanted something more from life," she explained. She also said that meeting her now-fiancé Ercan Ramadan and becoming an aunt to her little niece Mavie completely changed her perspective on things because of the love she feels for both of them.
Not only was the star vulnerable with her words, she also shared a bare-faced selfie that shows her smiling with red cheeks. But while she may be "finally in a place where my heart wants to have children," she explained that her life and biology just aren't aligned with that desire at the moment. She was honest about why she delayed the process of freezing her eggs, admitting how she had been "scared" of what it would mean for her. However, she said she has accepted the fact that having children isn't something that's in her immediate future.
Pattison, who is currently planning her wedding to Ramadan, called it "a difficult pill to swallow" and shared some details of her first visit to the clinic, mentioning that things seem to be progressing smoothly so far. She also encouraged women who have found themselves in a similar position to her to check in on their own fertility journeys! "It can be scary but knowledge is power afterall & we all deserve the future we envision for ourselves," she concluded.
