    Speaking to Entertainment Tonight, the 54-year-old explained why she has been so candid about her past struggles with fertility.

    ‘If I can share any light or give any wisdom to somebody or hope, I would share anything I can,’ she said. ‘In the end, I think that’s important.’

    She went on to say that her Facebook Watch series is effective and emotional because it’s a ‘really raw real program’.

    ‘There is not an episode that I don’t cry,’ she admitted. ‘It’s a story about 10 different couples that are taking us through the journey of their pregnancy and you deal with everything from cancer to alcoholism, I mean you name it.

    ‘Whether you can keep the baby, whether you should keep the baby, whether you wanted to get pregnant… you [get] this intimate look that’s not sensationalized.’

    ‘I think the stories are important to tell just because you want to know that you’re not alone and it gives people hope,’ she added. ‘So it kind of brings people together.’
