Rebel Wilson wants another child, will have to do IVF
Actress Rebel Wilson would like to expand her family. On Saturday, the Jojo Rabbit star told E! News "I would like to have another child. It's just like, well, is that possible?” she shared. “I have to do IVF. We'll see how it goes.”
Wilson is already a mom to nine-month-old Royce Lillian, who was born via surrogate. “Roycie is such a miracle. And if she's my only child, then amazing,” she told the outlet.
The Pitch Perfect alum has been candid about her journey to motherhood. She visited a fertility doctor in 2019 to freeze her eggs and was told she'd have a better chance if she lost weight.
Wilson, who has polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS), which can affect fertility, prioritized her health and fitness and lost 80 pounds, telling People magazine in May 2022, "I thought of a future child's needs [and] that really inspired me to get healthier."
"I would love to have a family," she told the magazine at the time. "I'm just going for it by myself at the moment because of the biological clock. If I meet the right person, great, and then they can fit in with whatever happens. It's great that the technology exists. You have so many options with surrogacy and sperm donors. I only started thinking of fertility when I was 39 so you feel quite late but then there are women in their mid-40s who've been successful. Look at Janet Jackson, it's pretty inspiring."
In November 2022, the Senior Year star announced the birth of her daughter.
"I can’t even describe the love I have for her, she’s a beautiful miracle!” Wilson wrote on Instagram alongside a photo of her baby girl in a pink onesie atop a soft blanket.
Wilson said she will be "forever grateful to everyone who has been involved," saying they know who they are, as becoming a mom "has been years in the making." She went on to personally "thank my gorgeous surrogate who carried her and birthed her with such grace and care. Thank you for helping me start my own family, it’s an amazing gift. The BEST gift!!"
The actress shares her daughter with fiance, Ramona Agruma.
The couple kept Royce's face out of the spotlight until Mother's Day 2023, when Wilson shared an adorable photo of the family. Royce wore a big smile on her face as she donned rabbit ears and a pink sweater. "Happy Mother's Day," Wilson captioned the post. "(Just woke up at 5:30 am and changed a big [poop emoji] …how about you?)"
