...about the fertility situations of people in the public eye?

My favorite news anchor (Megyn Kelly on Fox News) announced this week that she's expecting again (this will be #3). My first thought was happiness for her, but then I started to wonder. 42? Did she do IVF? Egg donor? Not that it matters at all or that she's obligated to tell anyone about her personal business, but my inquiring mind can't help wondering.

Do you wonder about people? Do you like it when people discuss their fertility issues? Does it bug you when you think people are hiding their circumstances, or do you think that they are entitled to be as private as they want?

I love love love guiliana and bill, and follow them pretty closely.

I do often wonder, but it's more why people like Britney spears seem to be so fertile.

Hahaha... I would be putting Megyn Kelly in the celebrity trash category too... so maybe she didn't need ivf


I cannot stand that awful teen mom show. Talk about making teen pregnancy look like a good idea! I wish there was a way to pull it off the air.

Whenever I c older women or very obese women I always wonder if they use medical assistance and then start to question how they get pregnant and I can't. I consider myself old (I turn 33 tomorrow) and I'm over weight bout 60lbs. Especially if they are very negative people. I consider myself to be a fair person but have the worse luck. Idk... I'm approaching year 4 of my ttc journey and I usually have a positive attitude but with this new illness, my bday coming, and it's going on 4 years I'm starting to question everything.

I do wonder all the time. I get that celebrities want their privacy, but I do wish more would speak out or at least be honest about their situation. Giuliana and Bill are a fabulous example of being public and spreading knowledge, albeit not 1000% accurate, but at least spreading awareness about this sutff

Ugh, don't even get me started on Teen Mom. Such an awful idea for a show. And not only do they get a show and money they are also now in magazines!

Being the nosy person that I am I would love to know about celebrities but I also understand their want for privacy about it.

I want to say that one of our news anchors had some issues and that was all that was said when.she got pregnant. But kudos to her for saying that much!

Oh I wonder all the time. I wish public figures talked more about it. I think publie awareness is very important about this infertility. I can understand people just don't want to be judged. I never thought I'd be doing IVF, I never thought I would be using a donor egg. We feel like we need to keep it a secrete from our IRL friends because of them not understanding and being judged.

42 and pregnant is super hard to do...it only happens to a select few and most of those will mc.... so I imagine that newscaster probably had a little help. I hope she did to achieve her dreams and her family. If it was natural - I hope she realizes what a miracle and complete blessing she has been given.

I totally wonder about it! Especially when so many celebs have fraternal twins!
It bugs me that they don't speak about it. They're in the public eye, and could help raise awareness so IVF and other fertility treatments are not so stigmatised.
