Singer Rita Ora has opened up about freezing her eggs, saying it was ‘the best’ thing she ever did.
The star froze her eggs aged 24 and again at 27 to secure her future of being able to have a family after getting advice from a doctor.
She spoke to The Independent where she explained how it worked and why she made the decision to go ahead with it.
Rita said she’s like to have a ‘nice big family’ and in Kosovan culture, which is where she was born, having children is important.
She said that she finds that women put pressure on themselves to make this happen as they feel being a mother is their ‘duty’.
The singer added: “And I think as women, we put that pressure on ourselves, subconsciously, because we feel like that is our duty – to create and give life. So, I just wanted to not worry about it. And I didn’t after, and it was the best thing I ever did.”

The star opened up about her romance with producer boyfriend Taika Waititi, 46 after meeting in Australia back in April of this year.
The pair met while Rita was filming The Voice earlier in the year.
She admitted she wasn’t looking for love when she met her new boyfriend and is now wanting to keep her relationship out of the spotlight.
Rita admitted that in the past she has been too ‘trusting’ which has lead to oversharing and now she thinks it’s important to have a ‘sense of privacy’.
Taika is said to be working on multiple future films including Thor: Love and Thunder.
Their relationship seems to be moving quickly as they’ve already mentioned marriage.
Taika used to be married to film producer Chelsea Winstanley before splitting in 2018.

They also have two daughters togetehr, Te Hinekāhu and Matewa Kiritapu.
Rita and Taika went official by making their red carpet debut at the LA premiere of The Suicide Squad back in the start of August.
The RIP singer touched on when she was caught breaking British covid guidelines.
November 2020 saw Rita attend a private party for her 30th birthday at London restaurant Casa Cruz.
It was reported that they were allegedly paid £5,000 to reopen for the night as well as being asked to turn off their CCTV, according to police.
Police called the event ‘one of the most egregious and notorious’ lockdown breaches.
Rita was supposed to be self isolating at the time for 14 days after returning from working in Egypt but she has since called it ‘a serious and inexcusable error of judgement’.
She said she was ‘incredibly embarrassed’ and still is.
Finding it hard to talk about she said she wishes that she’d made a different choice that night.
However, she understands the backlash she got when others were making sacrifices, saying she ‘let them down’.
