Kylie Minogue Considering Egg Donation
Kylie Minogue has revealed that she has considered egg donation as a way to start a family.
The 42-year-old says she’s worried about the effect breast cancer may have had on her fertility. “I’ve looked into various options,” she said. “I don’t know if I’m going to go down any of those roads yet, but I do need to look at what might be potential paths that lead to a family. They can do incredible things now, especially in America.”
The singer says she looks at her new nephew Ethan (to sister Dannii) “wistfully” and earlier this year said “I’d love to have babies, but it’s very hard.”
But London-based Minogue also acknowledges that having a child might not be for her, and says she’ll be content if she doesn’t have a child. She describes boyfriend of two years, Spanish model Andreas Velencoso, 32, as her most “fulfilling relationship”, after admitting she has always been attracted to “complex characters.”
For now though, she says she’s never been happier, after beating cancer and forging a successful career in the US. “I do feel that then I’ll almost be back in my own body, which would be great. I felt for such a long time that I was in a stranger’s body.”
Do you think it’s ok to have a child at any age, either through conception or adoption?
