Kaitlyn Bristowe Reveals Why She’s Freezing Her Eggs — With Shawn’s Support!
Recently, they even teased that babies might come before a big wedding. But then, last week, the Bachelorette 2015 star revealed she was freezing her eggs.
And according to an Instagram post by her fiancé on Friday, this was something the two had planned for together.
The personal trainer wrote of his future wife, “Always impressed by her strength & courage, but even more so after these past few weeks! Very proud of her taking control of our future and continuing to empower others! #ovaeggfreezing.”
The Bachelorette also used social media to discuss the major decision.
“I’m taking control of my future!” she tweeted in response to a fan question. “As a woman there’s always pressure to have babies, and this puts my mind at ease for when IM ready.”

For the record, freezing one’s eggs on average costs around $10K to $12K, with an additional expense of $800 per year to store the eggs. A financial commitment like this clearly came with a lot of consideration.
Her reasoning is a bit different than Carly’s, though.
So happy to celebrate my year anniversary of freezing my eggs! With @whitb624 at my side and the @ovaeggfreezing staff (that now feels like family) I'm still so happy with my decision! @theebass and I are SO excited to have kids together, but I also have the best backup plan just in case I need a little help! Anyone who wants to take control of their future, or wants some more information go to www.ovaeggfreezing.com (also I did video diaries the whole way though the experience on their website! So also check those out too!) (hair @hairbycm makeup @rosemary.monica )
“Five years ago, they told me they didn’t think that I could have kids,” the 31-year-old explained on Instagram. “Now I don’t have to worry about that anymore and now I have the best backup plan in the entire world.”
We love this open dialogue about fertility — and it sounds like it was all thanks to Whitney Bischoff!
The fertility nurse appears to have been the one to get her Bachelor Nation friends involved with Ova Egg Freezing. She also thanked them afterwards for sharing their journeys.
“That's a wrap! Thanks to these ladies for believing in @ovaeggfreezing,” she gushed.
She also thanked Kaitlyn specifically, hinting that we’d learn more about the Nashville native’s experience going forward.
“Being a woman means taking control of your future,” Whitney captioned a pic with her pal.
She concluded, “We all know she's an open book and will share her truth. You don't wanna miss out!!!”
