Rita Ora would rather be safe than sorry.
The 26-year-old “Body on Me” singer revealed in a new interview with Australian television program “Sunrise” that she has already frozen her eggs.
“Me being 27 soon, I thought about this when I was in my early 20s, about kids,” said Ora. “Maybe that is me being a hypochondriac, but I have always wanted a big family.”
“My doctor asked me, ‘I think you should freeze your eggs,’ when I was in my early 20s. That is what he said to me.”
Host David Koch interjected: “That is a confronting question from a doctor!”
“I know but he has been my family doctor for a long time and he said, ‘You are healthiest now and it would be great,'” Ora insisted. “‘Why not put them away and then you never have to worry about it again?'”
And so the singer took the medical professional’s advice. “I think it depends on people’s beliefs and I’m a big believer in using what we have in making the most of it,” she said.
“I have never said that [I’ve had my eggs frozen] on TV, and I’m 26 so I know people might say ‘Wow, that’s so young.’ I just wanted to really be safe,” Ora continued. “Maybe that is me being crazy.”
Ora released her new single, “Anywhere”, off her upcoming second studio album, on Oct. 20 to critical acclaim.
