Kaitlyn Bristowe is getting a head start on her future family plans.
“The Bachelorette” star and her supportive fiance Shawn Booth revealed Bristowe has decided to freeze her eggs. “Always impressed by her strength & courage, but even more so after these past few weeks!” Booth shared on Instagram Friday evening. “Very proud of her for taking control of our future and continuing to empower others!”
Bristowe, 31, was equally open about her choice, explaining to a curious fan why she made the decision. “I’m taking control of my future!” she explained. “As a woman there’s always pressure to have babies, and this puts my mind at ease for when I’m ready.”
And the Canadian television personality isn’t the only “Bachelor” alum to freeze her eggs. “Bachelor in Paradise” star Carly Wadd went through the process last year. “I had a lot of hormonal problems for years and years and years,” she shared on her video blog. “Five years ago, they told me they didn’t think that I could have kids… Now I don’t have to worry about that anymore and now I have the best backup plan in the entire world.”
Bristowe and Booth are considering getting married in the fall.
