Model and actress, Emily Ratajkowski, has revealed her future plans as a mother in a question-and-answer session with fans. Ratajowski, who is already a mother of two-year-old Sylvester, has confessed that she is open to the idea of freezing her eggs as her journey as a single mother continues.
Responding to a fan who asked her about the trials and tribulations of raising a young child without the father, Ratajkowski said:
“I think I definitely would like to have more children – I really love being a mum. A lot of my friends have gotten their eggs frozen just to buy themselves some more time, do the careers they want, meet the potential partner they want, but also I know a lot of people who have had IVF because they weren’t able to get pregnant naturally.
I’m 31 but at my last visit with a gaeno she said ‘in about two or three years we’ll be talking about your eggs, you know, being frozen’. And it really shocked me – not that I don’t think that’s reasonable, I was just like ‘holy s**t I have to be thinking about that. My mum naturally got pregnant with me at 38 so it never crossed my mind that part of it.”
No Sign of a Suitable Man in Her Life
During the Q&A, the 31-year-old also admitted that she is unsure about any future relationships as not many men she has met since being a single mom have been receptive to the fact that her son Sylvester is her number one priority.
The star burst onto the scene in 2013 when she appeared in the music video for Robin Thicke’s chart-topping single Blurred lines. She became one of the most desirable women in the world overnight but says she is struggling to find a suitable long-term partner. She said:
“I’m not sure I’m going to find somebody that I want to raise a child with. Some men are more respectful of my family (me and Sly) and more cognisant of it than others, and that makes a huge difference to me. Like if you are appreciative of my life as a mother and my time with Sly and how he is number one you win so many points.
I personally wouldn’t be afraid of getting pregnant and giving birth as a single woman. That doesn’t mean I’m saying that’s the best way to do it or the only way to do it but I very much see that for my future – deciding to IVF in my late-30s to give Sly a sibling.
I think marriage is really hard, the partnership is really hard and when you bring kids into the mix it’s 1,000 times more difficult, so in some way being a single mum can streamline it a bit.”
Disappointment for Harry Styles?
Ratajkowski’s comments about her lack of interest in finding a long-term partner could be disappointing news for Harry Styles. The Watermelon Sugar singer was pictured kissing Ratajkowski in a car park in Tokyo last weekend and it appeared like the pair couldn’t keep their hands off each other.
With Ratajkowski being open about her disinterest in finding a man, however, it appears that the incident may well have just been a drunken one-off rather than the start of a blossoming relationship.
The model had a brief relationship with Pete Davidson after splitting with her ex-husband, Sebastian Bear-McClard, in July last year but now looks set to put all of her energy into motherhood.
