[UPDATED as of 4:01 PM, August 13]: Gretchen Fullido happily announced on Instagram that she had frozen her eggs. "Been praying about this for a few years now and my dream finally came true", wrote the TV host, who recently turned 35. "It's the best birthday gift I can ever give to myself." 


According to a report by Smart Parenting, more and more women, either single or married, are resorting to egg freezing as it gives them a choice to have a baby later on in life "without worrying about their biological clock." This is especially helpful for women in their 30s who are focusing on their careers or who aren't simply fully prepared to raise a child just yet (ideally, it is recommended for a woman to have her eggs frozen in her early to mid 30s.) 

As Gretchen further shared, the decision to harvest her eggs made her feel more in control of her own life. "[I wish to] have a baby in my own time, in God's perfect time," she said. 

The TV host ended her post with a piece of advice: "If you been thinking about it, Go Freeze it! I can honestly say that it’s the best decision of my life!" 


Iza Calzado, Divine Lee, and Cristalle Belo are some of the many other celebs who revealed that they had also undergone the procedure.
