Rebel Wilson (42) has dropped the pounds in recent years. Now she has revealed the reason: her mommy wish. The actress embarked on a “year of health” in 2020 after a fertility doctor told her she would have a much better chance of getting her eggs frozen if she lost a few pounds.
The “Pitch Perfect” star, who has lost around 35 kilograms in recent years, recalls speaking to “People” magazine: “He looked me up and down and said: ‘You could do it much better , if you were healthier.'”
“I carried a lot of excess weight around with me”
At first she was taken aback by this statement and thought the doctor was being rude. But then she realized: “He was right. I carried a lot of excess weight around with me. It’s almost as if I didn’t think of my own needs. I thought about the needs of a future child, which really inspired me to become healthier.”
Wilson has been diagnosed with polycystic ovarian syndrome, which can lead to fertility problems. And while she didn’t have a specific weight goal in mind, she was determined to get healthier. “It was not a goal to reach a certain weight. It was just being the healthiest version of myself,” Wilson revealed. (bang/bsn)
