LOS ANGELES, April 15 (UPI) — Olivia Munn froze “a bunch” of her eggs years ago in hopes of a future pregnancy.
The 35-year-old actress revealed as much on this week’s episode of the Anna Faris is Unqualified podcast while discussing parenthood with the 39-year-old mom-of-one.
“I did, years ago, I froze a bunch of eggs,” Munn told Faris. “I went to the doctor and did the whole test and he said, ‘You know, you actually have a lot of eggs, so you’re really lucky.’”
“It’s no longer on the experimental list and I think that every girl should do it. For one, you don’t have to race the clock any more. You don’t have to worry about it,” she explained.
“It’s also just like, why not do it, because I see so many women who go through in vitro later and they’re struggling, struggling, struggling,” the star added before confirming she does eventually want to be pregnant.
Munn has been dating Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers since 2014. The actress denied in January that she and the 32-year-old NFL star are engaged, although sources told E! News the couple plan to marry eventually.
“They are very much in love but they want to make sure it all happens naturally,” an insider said at the time. “Aaron supports Olivia with her acting and is a very proud boyfriend. There is always non-stop laughter and humor between them.”
Munn is best known for playing Sloan Sabbith on HBO series The Newsroom, which came to a close after three seasons in 2014. She will portray Psylocke in the Marvel movie X-Men: Apocalypse, which opens in theaters May 27.
