Rebel Wilson has constantly been vocal about her health journey since almost two years ago. The star has shared a difficult update with fans.
“I got some bad news today and didn’t have anyone to share it with…but I guess I gotta tell someone,” Wilson wrote on Instagram on Sunday. “To all the women out there struggling with fertility, I feel ya.”
The 41-year-old shared the news as a caption with a photo of herself. She is dressed in a zip-up hoodie and dark pants and can be seen walking at the beach at sunset. Wilson has received overwhelming support, not just from fans and other stars in the comments.
The actress might not have given any specific information, but she said: “The universe works in mysterious ways and sometimes it all doesn’t make sense…but I hope there’s light about to shine through all the dark clouds.”
The Pitch Perfect actress had vowed last year to make 2020 her “year of health” and has constantly shared her weight loss journey and struggles with the polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) and her decision last year to freeze her eggs.
“I was thinking about fertility and having good quality eggs in the bank, so I was like, ‘OK, I’m going to do this, I’m going to get healthy,” Wilson said in an Instagram live video in December 2019.
Wilson feels that all good career women out there should start working on being healthy if it is something that might interest them. Wilson also said it’s better to start earlier than 40, as getting to 40s is leaving it a little too late.
Last November, Wilson had opened up about her struggles with PCOS, a medical condition that causes irregular periods, weight gain, and infertility, among other things.
Wilson had been overweight for 20 years. However, she started gaining weight when she was 20 when diagnosed with PCOS, due to which she gained weight rapidly.
“It’s just a hormone imbalance and you gain a lot of weight usually and that’s how it manifested in me. Sometimes, I feel sad, but then at the same time, I worked my body to my advantage. I like being all sizes. It’s just now turning 40, I am more health conscious and thinking of starting a family,” the actress had said in an interview.
