Priyanka Chopra Froze her Eggs in her Early 30s
Priyanka Chopra has often made headlines for several of her professional and personal choices.
Now, in a new episode of the podcast Armchair Expert with American actor-filmmaker Dax Shepard, Priyanka explored some of these choices and milestones.
Talking about a deeply personal subject, the actor, who is the mother to a daughter, spoke of her decision to freeze her eggs in her 30s.
Priyanka said that she took the major step on the advice of her mother, Dr Madhu Chopra, who is an obstetrician-gynaecologist.
The Bajirao Mastani actor shared that the decision to freeze her eggs gave her a sense of “freedom”.
Explaining her decision, Priyanka said: “I felt such freedom, I did it in my early thirties and I could continue on an ambitious warpath, I wanted to achieve, and I wanted to get to a certain place in my career.”
However, that was not the only reason for the decision.
She continued: “Also, I had not met the person I wanted to have children with.
“So, with that anxiety-inducing, and with my mom who is an obstetrician-gynaecologist going, ‘36…just do it’.”
She also shared about her love for children.
The actor said: “I always knew I wanted kids and that was one of the reasons I didn’t want to date Nick because I was like I don’t know if he would want kids at 25.
“I love kids, I have worked with kids at UNICEF, and I have volunteered at kids’ hospitals.
“I am like a kid whisperer, and I would rather spend time with children than with adults.
“I love kids, all our parties are kids and dogs friendly. At our house, you can bring them anytime.”
Dax Shepard shared pictures from the recording session of the podcast.
He captioned the post: “Starting off this week with a banger – Priyanka Chopra joins us today!!!!!
“Super smart, spunky as hell…we loved our time with @priyankachopra please enjoy now on @spotifypodcasts”
