Mona Singh reveals she froze her eggs at the age of 34, says 'want to chill with my partner, travel the world with him'


Mona Singh married Shyam Gopalan in a Sikh ceremony on December 27, 2019. The hush-hush ceremony was attended by family members and close friends. Now, as the couple will be celebrating their first wedding anniversary next month, Mona spoke to a leading daily about marrying at the age of 38. The actress told that she froze her eggs when she was 34 and now she is free to enjoy her life with her husband. She shared that she wants to have children but later. 

"I have frozen my eggs and now I am free. I did that at the age of 34. Because I have gotten married now, I want to chill with my partner and travel the world with him. I haven’t done that yet. I have always travelled with my family or friends. I want to do that with my husband now and it is a different feeling now -- going for walks, getting all the attention, keeping Karwa Chauth vrat – all this is so nice. Even though I love kids, if you ask me now, I am not mentally prepared to have one. Later in life, I would definitely think about it," Mona told.

Talking about freezing her eggs and the process, Mona shared, "My mother was so happy when she heard about my decision to freeze my eggs. We both went to my gynaecologist in Pune and I had to take a few months break from work as the process involves a lot of mood swings. It took about 5 months for the process and now, as I said, I am free."

The Jassi Jaissi Koi Nahin actress spoke about marrying at the age of 38. "We are living in a new world where there is no age to get married. I was in no rush. I feel this was the best age for me to get married because a person is more evolved, experienced and has seen his/her share of ups and downs, and you know that this (marriage) is important and this should stay. You get married now because you want to and because you think it is time to get married," she said.
