The surprising news comes in the wake of the “America’s Next Top Model” host/creator openly discussing her fertility issues

“I want to co-sign what Chrissy is saying and say ‘You have no idea what people are going through,'” she said on the daytime talk show before fighting back tears. “Why am I crying? You just have no idea what people are going through, so when you ask Chrissy that or me that or anybody that, it is none of your frigging business, okay?”

“And for any women, it is none of your business what somebody is going through,” the former model continued. “Whether they want to have a child or don’t ever want to have a child or may have a child on the way, it’s none of your business, okay? Until somebody wants to make it your business.”
