Olivia Munn had her eggs frozen after speaking with her close friend Kim Kardashian, the actress recently revealed. Both Kim Kardashian and Olivia Munn are 37-years-old and approaching the end of their most fertile years. As more female celebrities are having babies later in life, more women are following suit and delaying their own pregnancies. What many may not be aware of; however, is that celebrities who are having babies in their forties are often using medical assistance to complete the procedure.
This can include everything from freezing eggs to using a surrogate to carry the child. Some notable celebrities who have reportedly used surrogates include Nicole Kidman, Kim Kardashian, Katey Sagal, Tyra Banks and Sarah Jessica Parker. As more celebrities are turning to surrogates, they are also freezing their eggs so when the day comes that they want a child, they will have their own eggs available and ready.
Olivia Munn came to the decision that freezing her eggs would be right for her after speaking about it to Kim.
Kim Kardashian and husband Kanye West welcomed their daughter Chicago on January 15, 2018, who was born via surrogate. It’s unclear if Kim plans on having another baby via surrogate, but one of the benefits of freezing eggs is that parents have greater liberty to plan their children accordingly.

Olivia Munn and Kim Kardashian aren’t the only celebrities embracing technology when planning their families.
Whitney Cummings shared a photo in 2015 that indicated she was freezing her eggs so that she could plan a family in the future. As many women want to delay raising children until after their careers are established, more women are finding the best time to start a family is in their late thirties to early forties, compared to their twenties.
Sofia Vergara froze her eggs when she was engaged to Nicholas Loeb. Sofia is now married to Joe Manganiello. Sofia has an adult son, but now at the age of 45-years-old, she doesn’t have to worry about racing or beating the clock if she wants a baby with Joe.
