There's been celebrity gossip lately about Jennifer Love Hewitt freezing her eggs. According to US Weekly, the star of Client List is going to preserve her fertility at age 34.
An unnamed source told the magazine, the star "feels worried that she will end up single, since none of her relationships have been successful."
Evidently, Love-Hewitt laughed off the story on Twitter, saying "“I’m insuring my boobs! I’m freezing my eggs! Nope I’m shooting the new season of The Client List! Now that isn’t made up ;).”
Even if it is a made-up story, it's not a bad idea for a busy Hollywood actress in her mid-30s — as well as those in their late 20s and early 30s — to look into freezing their eggs, particularly when money is not an issue. Freezing your eggs is no guarantee that you will able to start a family at a later date, but it does offer some insurance. And because age effects fertility, the earlier you look into freezing your eggs, the better.
Maria Menounous, co-host of Extra, is one celebrity who has brought attention to fertility preservation by freezing her eggs. Jennifer Aniston is another star who is rumored to have frozen her eggs.
