Love Island star Amy Hart opened up about having a potential solo IVF journey next year as she fears early menopause.
The reality star recently froze her eggs after finding out her family has a history of early menopause.
“I was actually talking about having solo IVF next year,” she explained when asked about raising a child on her own.
“Lots of people say, ‘Why would you do that – a baby deserves a mum and a dad’.”
She continued to OK! : “But I’ve got so many friends that had children with their boyfriends, their fiancés, their husbands and have ended up single mums with dads who want nothing to do with the babies.”
The star never had a boyfriend before and wanted to freeze her eggs before it was too late, after having fertility checks last year that threw up some concerning results.
Amy revealed in March she spent thousands of pounds to successfully freeze her eggs.
The 28-year-old initially spent £5,000 on two rounds of egg-freezing, which ended up failing.
However, she spent £1,500 on one last shot and was over the moon to find out it was a success.
Discussing her decision last month, she told The Sun : “I have always wanted kids and can’t see myself ever not having them. That is why I wanted to freeze my eggs now, while they are still young and healthy.

“When my first two attempts failed, it sent me into a panic about whether to do IVF and have a baby immediately, because the freezing was not working.
“I felt uncertain about what was going to happen if I went for the third round and it didn’t work.”
Most women in her family, such as her mum, nan and aunt, all went through menopause when they were in their early forties.
The TV personality appeared on Loose Women in early March and explained how her mum was a shoulder to lean on during the process.
She told the hosts: “My mum said one day, ‘I would never let you miss out on it, so I’d always support you if you had a baby on your own’.”
