When celebrities publicly discuss their fertility struggles, it can help other families going through the same thing feel a little less alone. Many celeb moms (like Hilaria Baldwin and Michelle Obama) and Bravolebs (including Ashley Darby and Gretchen Rossi) have spoken out about difficulty conceiving and past miscarriages, and praised their partners for support during the process.
It's less common, however, for men to share their own perspectives on the journey, but Marc Daly just changed all that.
"You agreed to come out because you really wanted to talk to other men, other husbands, significant others, partners going through this," Hall began. "What was it like for you?"
"It’s incredibly challenging because the success rate for these treatments are very low. So there’s a lot of disappointment, expectations, and you also have to be prepared for disappointment so just being there, being supportive, being hopeful, and being just positive and being behind her is what it’s really about," he responded.
The new parents were joined by Brooklyn (in her second TV appearance), and also discussed who actually administered Kenya's IVF shots.
Hall assumed it was Marc, but was quickly corrected.
"To be fair, I never did that. I hate needles so I didn’t do that," Marc said, with Kenya sharing that she did suppositories as well as shots, but she was the one to give herself the progesterone shots, despite also having a fear of needles.
Andrea Syrtash, founder of Pregnantish, a site dedicated to helping people dealing with infertility and fertility treatments, previously shared with Personal Space that when celebrities open up about their private struggles with infertility, it normalizes it for everybody.
"It's great that celebrities are being more open about their experiences with pregnancy loss and infertility, since it helps others in this situation realize how common it is,” she said. "When we see celebrities with baby bumps and perfect-looking families, it's so easy to think that they had an easy path to parenthood. By opening up about their struggles, people in the public eye can help others feel less alone."
