Brittany opened up about her fertility struggle on I’m A Celeb

In the most recent season of the reality series, Brittany divulged that she’s already taken measures towards having kids with Ben.

“Different people’s fertility deteriorates at different rates,” she said at the time, adding, “Mine’s not great.”

“I froze some eggs to be safe, then when Ben and I met and decided we wanted to be together with what we knew we thought we’d have a better chance at having kids if we froze some embryos.”

Brittany shared that their embryo journey was a success, and opened up about the legalities behind it.

“I’m very happy to say we got three embryos, so it’s a weight off my shoulder in a sense, but it’s also something I think about all the time,” she said.

“It is both of ours obviously, it’s made. So, you have to both sign to use it, and you have to sign off if one of you dies what you want if you die are you happy for them to use it without you.

“Nothing is a guarantee in life. It’s one of those things where I think I talk myself out of whether I want kids, and I think that’s because I know I might not be able to. I feel like I just need to do it deal with it and figure it out.”
