Vicky Pattison breaks down in tears as she opens up on fertility journey and freezing eggs

By Matt Spivey

Former Geordie Shore favourite Vicky Pattison has been brought to tears whilst sharing an update on her fertility journey as she reveals her progress on freezing her eggs.

Vicky, 34, and her fiancé Ercan Ramadan have shared that they are planning on having children but that they have made the decision to delay becoming parents as Vicky has chosen to freeze her eggs.

In an emotional update shared on Instagram the I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here winner wrote: "I’m in a really good place based on my blood tests and my scans for egg retrieval which is exactly what I wanted to hear."

Whilst she took to her Instagram story to share more insight to her 5million followers, speaking to her camera she said: “Now that I’ve got this information and have a bit of time to reflect on it and work out what I want my next step to be.

“Do I want to freeze my eggs? Do I want to freeze my embryos? Embryos are my eggs with Ercan’s sperm already in them.

“When the lady was talking to us about that day it made us really emotional just imagining a tiny part of me and a tiny part of Ercan meeting for the first time in a little petri dish.

“I’m sure you’ve guessed by my little tiny tears reaction there that that is probably the direction I want to go.”

The couple got engaged in February this year after Ercan, 38, proposed during a beach holiday in Dubai.

Vicky has been candid with her fans about her fertility journey and her plans to become a mother.

In a post she shared with her followers last month, she captioned: "I wasn't always so sure I wanted children.. I remember going on @loosewomen years ago, just after the jungle & saying that I didn't think I wanted to be a mother- I was in my 20's & woeful arrogant enough to think that I had everything figured out & I wouldn't change my mind!

"I think when you get older what you want out of life just naturally changes you know? The late nights & bar hopping didn't do it for me anymore.. I wanted something more from life.

"So now I'm finally in a place where my heart wants to have children, my head knows it's not necessarily the right moment for us & unfortunately my body doesn't have the luxury of loads time... F**king Mother Nature eh?

"So today I took my first step towards freezing my eggs.

"I think the only explanation I can give for waiting so long was because I was scared.

"And I think I thought that starting this process meant accepting that I probably wouldn't be having children anytime soon- which even though I know is 110% the right thing for us & our relationship right now- was none the less a difficult pill to swallow."
