Rebel Wilson has spoken of his continued struggles with fertility over the weekend, and the response has been overwhelming.
The “Pitch Perfect” star shared a snapshot Sunday on Instagram with a moving caption about her journey with fertility.
“I got some bad news today and didn’t have anyone to share it with … but I guess I need to tell someone about it,” the 41-year-old wrote. “To all the women struggling with fertility, I can smell you. The universe works in mysterious ways and sometimes it just doesn’t make sense … but hopefully there is light about to shine through all the dark clouds.
Many friends and fans expressed their support for Wilson in the comments, including actors Jillian Bell, who sent her “love”, and Alexis Knapp, who said she too had “been through this”.
Wilson was so touched by the responses that she updated the caption Monday to share “how much it meant to me and made me feel so much better today.”
“Social media for the win here in terms of creating connection when I was in a very lonely place. So thank you all, ”she added.
The Australian native has previously opened up about her desire to start a family, sharing with fans last year that she hoped to freeze her eggs.
Wilson also revealed in an interview with E! Online in November, she suffers from Polycystic Ovary Syndrome, which has caused her to gain a lot of weight.
“It’s just a hormonal imbalance and you usually gain a lot of weight and that’s how it manifested in me. Sometimes I feel sad, but at the same time I have worked my body to my advantage. I like being of all sizes, ”she told the outlet, adding that at the age of 40, she has become“ more health conscious and is considering starting a family ”.
