Carrie Bickmore has given props to Rebel Wilson on Monday night’s episode of The Project after the Australian actress opened up on social media about her fertility struggles.
Wilson announced that 2020 would be her ‘year of health’ and that she had taken the decision to have her eggs frozen.
“As all good career women out there should know, if that’s something that interests you, it’s a pretty good time to do it.
Getting to your 40s is kind of even leaving it a little too late. It’s better to do it a bit earlier if you can.”
Bickmore applauded the decision and sent her support to the Aussie star.
“It’s so hard when someone who’s that famous opens up like that, because then it’s hard when you decide to share so much,” she said.
“She should be able to share as little or as much as she wants on the terms she wants.
“It’s brave to go, ‘I will let the world in’. Something so deeply private.
“The comfort that will provide other women, knowing they are not alone.. so many women are affected by it. I hope she’s allowed to deal with it on her terms.”

Wilson revealed the hormone imbalance also added to her weight problems
“I’ve been overweight for about 20 years. I started gaining weight when I was about 20. I had something called PCOS – polycystic ovarian syndrome – and I 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 sized. It’s just now turning 40, I am more health-conscious and thinking of starting a family.”
Wilson announced in November last year that she had marked a major milestone in her ‘year of health’ journey. She took to Instagram, to reveal she had reached her goal weight of 75kg.
“Hit my goal weight with one month to spare! Even though it’s not about a weight number, it’s about being healthy, I needed a tangible measurement to have as a goal and that was 75kg.”
