Sophie Monk has revealed she's frozen her eggs during a candid chat about starting a family.
While speaking to Kyle and Jackie O on Wednesday, the Beauty and the Geek host admitted she often struggles to respond when asked about when she will start a family with her husband Joshua Gross.
"If I say no then people are like, 'She's not having kids' and then if I say yes then they're like, 'Where is it?'" she said.

Sophie said navigating the road to motherhood while being a public figure has its pitfalls.
"I don't know when it'll happen or what will happen. There was a headline saying I'm worried about my age and I never said that."
"If I've put on a bit of weight everyone thinks I'm pregnant."

Sophie revealed she has frozen her eggs and Joshua has given a sperm analysis. but admitted they've had both "good news and bad news" when it comes to fertility.
"It's complicated... We're just going to have a break and chill. It's just part of life really, isn't it?" she said.
In early July 2022, Sophie told our sister site WHO that while she hopes to start a family with Joshua, their happiness isn't dependent on it.
"It's hard to say too much, but we are definitely trying. We are working towards that and if it happens it would be incredible, but if it doesn't then that's just not meant to be," she said.
"That's the only way you can look at it. I'm a big believer that everything happens for a reason."
Sophie, who previously told A Current Affair that she'd "love to be a mum", shared her egg freezing journey with her Instagram followers in 2018 when she had 13 eggs retrieved thanks to Monash IVF.
"So for anyone thinking about freezing their eggs like me for preventative or medical reasons, I've got to say I had no side effects whatsoever," she remarked at the time.
