It's a lot of realness, it's a lot of honesty, it's a lot of humor. I love your show. So congratulations on season two. That is so sweet. Thank you, thank you. Thank you for being here. And taking time, but I do not want to talk about your show, or well, a little slow, but a little shout, a little snippet of your show. I want to talk about something that is very dear to me and a lot of women and men as well go through similar processes. You recently revealed on your episode that you were considering going through the IVF process, which the first part was freezing your eggs correct. Yeah, and this is something do you...

...go through with this? Yeah, I do. Actually, it was kind of on a whim. We were filming and I was just having I've been single for a long time and I was having anxiety attacks at night like, Oh my God, I'm never going to have kids, I don't found the right man yet, and so I was like, Hey, guys, I'm going to go through this process, cameras are no cameras and it's going to be emotional for me, and they're like, would you allow us in there? And we ended up getting in there and it was not what I thought it was going to be. So I you do go through that process with me. It is very, very just kind of unexpected what my results were, but you get to see a lot of that play out on the show. Okay, so I will see a lot of that on the show. When you wouldn't I know you can't say much because people are going to see it go out, but if you were to think about it psychologically or emotionally, were there any reservations that you know, I can do this on my own? Was it a confidence because you come from a family? You guys are well established financially, figuratively, so it's an easy step to make, you know, maybe for someone like you or myself, which I went through. You know, the IVF process. Is this something that you say I want to make people see that this is an okay thing to do as a single woman? Oh my God, absolutely. Like the finance, I it's not cheap, you know. Everyone knows that, and no insurances really cover this process, which I think they should. But yeah, so I was confident going in, like okay, I can pay for this, I'm good to go. But my God, like I didn't realize my results were going to be what they were and I wished I would have told my twenty eight year old self just go see what your body is doing, just be educated. It cost nothing to walk in and then just look inside for a second. And I'm doing ultrasound, and so I agree. I after I did the IVF process, the first thing I did, which I called every single one of my girlfriends, including this one, I said, stop what you're fucking doing, go freeze your acts. And so many women, so many men, will get to that part, but so many women think I get my period every month, I'm fine, there's nothing wrong with me, and they don't realize that until that day comes where whatever it is that they're looking for the love of their life or you know, that special moment where they do want to get pregnant or they do get pregnant or they just can't get pregnant and they get pregnant and they keep having miscarriages. I learned so much. Go I'm sure you learned as well. Did you recommend this to your girlfriends? Did you say go out there, do this? Absolutely. I'd had a lot of friends with fertility issues, lots of them. I'm thirty four, so a lot of them are a little older than me, a little younger, and I just hadn't been in a marriage. You know, I was married years ago and you know that ended tragically. But I saw them all kind of go through their struggles and I was like, oh, that's not going to be me. You know that you're invincible, type of type of mentality, and I was like I'm you know, I'll be good. And whenever I left the doctor's office, I mean I called all my single friends and I'm like, do me a favor, if I am a good friend, you need to go check your body out, like just know where you're, where you're at. And it was surprisingly I had a couple girlfriends come back calling me crying. They had very low levels and wow, you know, went through the the Ed freezing process just like I did. So I got to like help some people out that we're good friends of mine. But yeah, they would have never done it. That's amazing. That's a that's that's what it's about. You know, I recommended at all my girlfriends and Eata knows, I said stop, please, go. You know, freezer eggs. Did you ever think? Um, I've I was too late. I feel like it's too late. NU's my and no, only I'm forty. I'll be forty three and December. It doesn't matter. I'm going to go freeze eggs. That like, I don't know. I just feel like it's at this point. Like I feel like if you're thirty six, thirty seven, it's still okay to do and I keep telling me this younger sister to do it. So I'm telling her what to do. I think for me it's too late at this point. I'm going to tell you something. One of my very good friends, her name is Nancy. She...

...is forty five years old and just had her her little girl, and they were going through they probably did like fifteen egg retree balls. I mean they spent more money than they ever you know what, it hoped that they have their little miracle baby and like she was not the vote, the most fertile, but like they have a kid and she's so happy and it's such a cool story. It's so ere. Age Did she start the whole process like thirty nine. See, thirty nine is still different than yeah, forty, she wo she was struggling to get those, those eggs, and you know whatnot yes, because that's what that's what Rachel and I are saying right now, is you can be twenty five and not a shot. That's Truss, and you can be forty five and have the best. I have an autoimmune disease. I have done drugs for such a large part of my life. I used to treat my body like shit, with alcohol and pills and everything. When it came to my fertility, I thought my doctor is gonna, you know, go in there and look inside and be like, follicles are there? We got no eggs on top. And I went inside and he said, wow, we have twenty two, twenty three, twenty four, twenty five, any God. Yeah, so I'm like what, wow, I was. I'm hyper producing, but some people are not. So it doesn't really don't think because of your age or anything. Just drunk as are never as long as you are today. It's true. You're never as young as you are today. Yeah, and I've been. I was literally to the play where I was just chase. I was just jumping into relationships and falling in love because I'm like, I have to lock someone down, I got to get married, I got to have baby. Literally, I was so fucked in the head with this process it was just wasn't even healthy anymore. So that's what kind of urged me just to go disco check it out. But it's never too late, ever, and I'm not going to review any details and I know you're not either. Every cu'se. You're being so, so, so perfectly secretive about it, but you did ever reveal recently to eat news that you do have a boon in your life. He was obviously not in your life while you guys were filming this season. No, so people see you as single, but you do have one and you are keeping that under wraps and I'm going to completely respect that. But what I wanted to ask, why's if you guys ever do get to a place speaking that if you want to have children, will you choose to maybe use your go through the IVF process? I have these eggs. Why don't we get your sperm and make some embryos? You know what I mean, because I'm all for that, because after knowing how much you can test and not embryo and make sure that your child's can have. Yeah, that many less possibilities. So you would do that. Absolutely. We've been very I've known him for fifteen years. We were in a very committed, loving relationship and I was very open about that, you know, from day one. And now we're very much in love and absolutely we were. Actually we're going to go to the doctor soon and just kind of chuck my body out again. It's been like six months since I've done that process. I just wanted my body to relax for a second. I know that you have arthritis. I have I made of metal. I'm like the bionic woman from my my scolio Scudly, I heard. I heard you have extreme scaliosis. I have scaliosis. I have the ASS. I have thirty three degrees on one side, twenty eight on the lower, but not to your degree. Yours is very extreme. It was very extreme. So I got the surgery at a I've got to titanium rods and forty two screws and back. So, wow, God. So you're like like a metal detector. Ding Ding, dinging, like a dream. Little I would see. They're damn, may be stuff aside. I'm like, I promise, I've nothing on me. I'm made up titanium. It is hysterical. Oh my gosh, wow. Well, I well, I also heard that because of that, you turn that into a plus and you became affiliated with something very amazing, a hot yoga company called hot works, is that right? Because of your back situation. So you took this negative and turned it into a positive, which is amazing. I...

...did. I was I was struggling really bad because when you have that type of surgery, your body it it traumatizes your muscles and your bones and it takes years to come back. And I started doing the hot works and I was literally like healing. So I just instagrammed the CEO and I was like, my name is Rachel Bradshaw, you know, I have a platform on a TV show. I can help you, you can help me, and he literally responded. I became their brand ambassater like that week. So it was really cool. That's beyond amazing and I don't think it's I mean, you have the story to go with it. You're not just randomly promoting something just, you know, for Bullshit. You're living through it and I love that. That's why I respect, you know, hot works, because I'm saying, okay, this girl has all these rods and screws and everything. You know, she makes music every time she's in the airport security section. She must be knowing. Now, did that in any way affect your fertility, your spine, being that shifted, your hip everything? How what does that do to your body, fertility wise? Honestly, it could have been a very big part of what's going on with me right now. Just you're shifting everything in your body is literally being traumatized and it takes years to get healthy again. So my doctor, you know, infertility doctors, they can't give you exact answers because there's still not as many test done of why? Why are some people there and they're not fertile? But there's no explanation, it makes no sense. They don't have those answers, and so he goes. You know, this could be a part of it, this could be a part of it. Weight can be a part of it. Like there's no answer to this, this whole like world. So it's like very frustrating as a woman and and for a man. You know, it's just like there's no right, right answer. But that could have been a big, a big part of it. Yeah, are you afraid of that? As a pregnant woman, your back and pregnancy, I mean that's I have rheumatoid arthritis and I got hit hard while I was pregnant with it. So I can understand what it feels like when you're putting on all this weight and creating a human your body's going through so many crazy hormones and jumps and this. Are you nervous? said this might do something. is are your are you safe to be pregnant with all these rods? Maybe, is what I'm asking. I'm nervous. Yes, absolutely, just just my back hurts as as is, you know, because it's, you know, been you know so much, been traumatized with the surgery. But yeah, I am scared of getting pregnant and having that extra weight. But it's like my sister's pregnant right now. She's almost doing like six weeks, and she complains about I know, I'm so excited, but if she complains about her back hurting, I'm like, Oh my God, what the Hell is going to happen to me? Yeah, if I have a baby. And Yeah, your body's changing, so I guess we'll see. I'm but yeah, I'm nervous. But yeah, worth it at the end. You we said it's all worth it at the end. It definitely is, and I'm trying to convince you of that. So maybe I'll make you go with me to get I had it. I had an appointment. This is like a two years ago, to get the to see what's going on down there. Yes, yeah, I freaked out that morning and I can't and sold it. I don't know why, because I always set to myself I'm not going to do it alone, like I don't think financially I'm ready to like take on this, you know, like and put this kid in the best schools and this, and that's what I feel like. Seeing your eggs is different than having getting pregnant. Just go freeze your eggs, put them on ice like a vodka. Just go put them. So let's you see if I know what's going on down there before I even do that. Well, yeah, they're going to see you with your if she goes with me, I'll do it. I'll well, I'll step out of the room when they put the stick in your vagina. I mean, I want to watch that part, but I'll see it all. Yeah, I don't want to wet your hand. Okay, got part either. Fine, I will be there supporting you from the other room. Okay, yeah, you, I did the same thing. I was like I probably made like five appointments and I can't say I was like canceled, canceled tiles. I didn't want to know. I'm much you did to why we do that, I bet. Why? No, you don't want to know. WAITCHEL, why? Why did you? What? What? Why? I just didn't want to know. I'm like, I'll just get pregnant and it'll just happen and I'll meet the love of my life and in...

...a week and whatever. And then I got in there and I'm like, well, fuck, okay, I just I hated that I had canceled appointments two years prior that I should probably gone to hmmm, I don't think women should be afraid of this. I think women Shit. I mean, if I had a daughter, I sort of got it the minish, she turned to eighteen, I would go get all of her eggs frozen. I'd get like a hundred of her eggs frozen just for her future, just so she knows. Yeah, sweetheart, go live your life. Do I don't ever be afraid of finding me to write because you're getting too old and you gotta pop a baby. I'll go live life, baby girl. And then you have all these ice over here, you know, these eggs over here on ice. You know, I would recommend that. And two men as well. Guys think, I'm sorry to get a little graphic. They think, because they Jizz, that that means there's a bunch of sperm in there and that there are sperm is healthy. And guess what? Majority of the time it's them the man and manning the issues. Yes, yes, that is so interesting. You say that one guy. I know this is a little graphics. So one guy was like, let's get graphic. Rate Show. Never too graphic here. We're trying to keep a culture a little bit. So get graphic. I have really big balls. I'm so I'm so fertile, and I'm like, just because you're big nuts doesn't mean that you can make a baby. Like, how stupid are you? The fuck is that? Is that a Texas thing? I've heard a guys with big boss thinking they have lots of babies. Funny, I had never heard of that and I was like why, you have big balls, like what's that? Anything? Is Your sperm count or like it was just and then I google it and I said there wasn't much online about that. But I'm like this is so weird. We're going to take a quick break, but when we come back, I hate the gym. I hate the gym. I don't go to the gym. Fuck the gym. I'm sorry. Sorry, all the gym's driveagre. I would love any gym sponsors out there right away? But that's okay. We all know you have a very famous father, Terry Bratch. We all know that. But I mean let's put the his fame and all that to the side and just being dat okay, because my dad sat in the actual room with me, with my parents. My sister was there too. Why, I actually got pregnant, you know. So they're while watching on a big scream. My legs are up, but you got sitting to you will come with me. But there you have your dad in your room. I know how big Pod I can say my dad watched me get pregnant. So go, okay, wow. So, yeah, would you ever invite your dad into that room if you are up, your legs up, like, you know, your new booze there, because you guys are like, you know, making it happen? Sis, you know, Nice's nephews, everyone's just yes, actually on. Well, whatever it's, it's and I'm not giving anything away, but he comes to my appointment with me and he walked into the room where the guys Jack off and they have all the magazines and was like, and we were literally like the camera guys were crying lappy. He didn't know where he was going. Amazing, that's amazing. Oh my God, I would die. I would die just Oh my God, my dad, I would, I would. I would want to like Windex my Dada and my dad's eyes like no, no, no, Oh my God, I think it's cool to because you can't eat. It's like. So your dad supportive. He's so supportive and open family, like I'm very, very close with my dad. So he's like, you want to get, you want to get, you know, your eggs frozen, and he was so sweet about it, because I was very single. I didn't have a man to lean on or a lot of girlfriends. I was kind of private about the experience at first, and so that's all that I had. Yeah, but what would you say to maybe your girlfriends, are a lot of women that are listening right now, that maybe they don't have that same dynamic that you have with your father, where maybe they're more conservative and more strict, where it has to be a man and a woman, or maybe they're gay and they want to have a child? And what would...

...you say, having now gone through it and you're about to show the whole world publicly, what would you recommend to people to have strength to go through this. You know, I injected myself every day and I honestly was went through the whole process alone because I was just like I can do this, I'll be fine. But if you don't think that you have that strength, some people just don't want to do it by themselves and I understand that. Bring a friend. Bring, like, anyone that you just trust that can comfort you, because it's your injecting hormones. Your your stomach is bloated. It's a very emotional process. It's not cheap. It's like have have someone with you. I should have. I should have probably had someone by my side. I had a sister that was like, let me inject you every day and I'm like no, I got this. I was a little too prideful about it. If I were to do it again, I would bring bring somebody that you love and trust that you can they can give you a hug or help you with your your shots. You know, just that kind of support really helps the process. I'm really glad that you said what you just said right now, but you pride full about it, because I feel like I went through that as well, because I decided I'm going to do this alone. I'm I got a sperm donor, I'm going to have the baby. Fuck what anyone thinks, because that's who I am. I've always been this way and I've always wanted just the child and not the relationship, you know. So for me was yeah, I'm going to I'm going to do this, I'm going to I'm going to, you know, make some babies. I'm going to go shop around for some sperm. You know, it was nerve racking. There were times, you know, I was like, what am I doing? But I realized I can never let anyone know that, because then they're going to say, well, what the fuck are you thinking doing this while by yourself and getting a sperm donor? So I kept all of my feelings, my fears, my those hormonal moments, because people don't realize how much hormones you're pumping inside of your body, you know, to go through this process, prepare you to drop off an embryon. You're pregnant. The next day your body's amped and I'm not an emotional person at all. So I'm going through all these waves of emotions and I'm pregnant now and I don't have anyone to tell I'm scared? Yeah, because I was afraid of well, what the fuck were you thinking? Doing this by yourself? Right, and you went into this, Rachel, thinking I might end up being by myself. I'M gonna take that risk because a child is more important to me and I loved that factor of it and I think that should be the biggest push and influence to people. It's comes down to where you destined to be a parent in your heart and soul, because if you were, then this go save your fucking money, and there are loan programs. I did a podcast about you saying doing for and there are loan programs for certain people to go out there and get help to do this process. I wish it were available to everybody, I really do, but there's ways to make it possible. It just got to feel it in your heart. Some people would rather have the partner, the love, the journey of that, and if children come along with it, then it is this process is not for you. If you're one of those people, yeah, well, right, right, it's not for you. It's one of those things where I need to have a child, type of a few yes, and I love that you did that and you're still open that I did that. I'm showed the world, showing the world that I've done that. And guess what? I also have a new boo in my life. You know, it's okay. It's okay because life happens. You might end up falling in love, you might not. It's like yeah, right, well, and you know what, like when I went in there, I even though I had my dad and in my family, you know, along the along, I'm still going home alone. I'm not. I'm still injecting myself by myself. I don't really hi, didn't have anybody really by my side, but I lay my head down every night and I'm like, you know what, I know that I ad meant to be a mother at some point, whether I'm forty, whether I whatever age, I don't care. I just want to know that I have that insurance policy that if I want to have a damn kid without a guy, that's fine, without a partner, but like, I could sleep at night every night being like I'm doing such a good thing for myself and, to be honest, I'm probably gonna to do it a couple more times. I don't really know what my journey it looks like,...

...but I think on a lot of television shows you see like positive outcomes, and with such a fun family show, my outcome was not very ideal, and so I was like, that's okay. Are It like lucky people see what's going to happen? Because, like I like you see on the show, like I'm single the whole time. I'm the single sister. I can't you know, I keep dating all these assholes and it's like no story of my life was so funny. Oh my God, I've been through the ringer in it. I've let them show that. So it's feel like the day the cameras wrapped, the next day I met my boyfriend. Why there, flucker, you've got to be kidding me like that. Where are you crazy? Yeah, but no, it was supposed to be this way, because I can guarantee the amount of people who are going to benefit from watching this season just because of you being single is going to be magnificent. And, you know what, I'm glad that you're saying. It's not all peaches and creams and UNICORNS and Rainbo it is a hard process. You there are not always success stories. I was lucky as well to have my process phones when I was pregnant last two seasons ago and I did IVF. IVF is a process. For those who don't know, they bypass or Philipian tubes. It's which that's where the sperm usually swims up. It goes in the little vagina, swims all the way up the canal through the Philippian Tube, lands in the ovaries way where the eggs are. It grabs onto those power of follicles and the eggs. I had the baby. Now the embryo bypasses that goes and sits directly in there where it needs to be. It's planted now and my little tongue come and a fluke situation happened. It went into my Filipi into it ruptured. I lost both my Philippian troops. Right now, they say statistically it is less than a one percent chance for this to happen. Oh my daughter was devastated. My surgeons in the emergency room had never experienced this in twent thirty years of being surgers. They said, we've never seen this from an ivy off. So it did not in any way discourage me. I was happy I was filming at that time. I was happy that I got to see myself be emotional and TV I got to tell the world. This is tough because in three months after that, when I was fully recovered, I was pregnant again, and I did I didn't need anything to stop me because I was determined. So again, this is not for anyone who thinks it's a trend right now everyone's having babies and naming them after random streets and stoff. You know, it's it's a real thing. It's a whole child, it's a whole human. It takes a lot of psychology to it. It talks a lot of emotion, takes a lot of money, you know, but it's about love first and foremost, and I'm so happy to know that you're doing this. Which one? I'm happy you're an advocate for it and I can't wait to continue to keep watching. You know this. Are you going to continue showing the world about hot works? Yes, absolutely. I'm very like when I tell you, like when you're had to learn to walk again. I was bedridden for three months. It took me three years to get over the surgery. You know, your body is it's a new body. I grew two inches taller. And when I'm telling you, like I tried. HMM, what? You grew two inches? No, no, no, she needs to she's a hunchback of note or dam over here, so bad. What my God, horrible, I'm telling you. I did pilates. You can't run. I was still restricted. I did every work out in the freaking world you could possibly do, and then I bumped into list company called hot works and I was like, what the fuck is this? This it's literally like magic in a box, and I gave it like five months of going like three, four times a week, and I'll never forget y'all. I touched my toes for the first time, like I'm made of metal, like you can't, you can't bend, but that, the infrared heat literally heeled my body and I touched my toes and I started crying and I was like, okay, I'm like the perfect advocate...

...for this company this. We got to make something work out. You have to go. It's unbelievable. Oh my God, Anita, I think he needs to I think I'm that. Would you know what sounds like that? It's such a great strengthen this hot works. Oh my God, in the core gg the core class is the best. It's so uny that sounds amazing. I'm going to check out pot WORKSCOM and I'm going to find something that works for me and for you. You could maybe, you know, do different types of classes and see what works with other a lot of the other different type of classes and stuff you can pick from puns. There's well, what pull bodies, hot bands, there's a psychle class, there's the core, there's one called warrior. Yeah, there's like twelve, I think, different classes. Okay, it's very I did a hot yoga a long time ago and I think I was probably like wasted on some sort of drug at that time. It was and I started hyper miccody. Yeah, I got really scared and now is an adult. I have come to a different level of mental clarity. I've heard so much that it's so psychological, that you have to detach your mind from self. I'm just be so for that. I really want to try hot yoga and just see if I can challenge myself into doing something like that. It's a really drive downe the like the beak room, hot yoga rooms and they're really like there's a lot of moisture in the air and you like him. Yeah, this is not like the dry heat and it's just so good, like your skin looks amazing, like your your it's very it's hard and just like your mentality, you leave in your like I just fucking crush that, like I can do anything in the world. But it's like forty five minutes and you get more of a workout doing that then you would go into the gym for two hours. I hate the freaking gym. I hate it. I hate the gym. I hate the gym.

So I know that you have something of raising coming up. You have a Christmas single coming out November. Twelve called Christmas to me, and here's my favorite part, because again, she has a very famous father. You're featuring your dad on the song. I am that's something is how did that come about? I just love Christmas. It's like our families just like, I think for a lot of people too, it's just the like the best time of year. I love Christmas, but I was great writing a song with a couple of my friends. I was like, let's write a Christmas song, and it was just all about like my family in our traditions and all these really happy moments and I was like, why wouldn't I have my dad who's he's actually really good singer? I go out to feature. I want to feature him on this song. How sweet would that be? And he was so excited and then on the show you see the whole process go down. It was really it's very special. Oh really, you guys filmed it? Oh, I can't wait to see that. There's a whole like Christmas episode. My sister does something really special for me to get me in the mood and it's just really fun. Oh, I love that. All the song is going to be much more special for us to here and now we know the backstory and everything to it. I think it's great you get to work with your family. I wish, I wish, if I have anyone out there listening from Bravo and VC, I wish I had a spin off of you know, my family to because like we're really cool people, not as cool as a branch, we are cool. I think it's great that you get to do that with your family. That's it's really cool. Yeah, it's it's fun. Okay, how do you pronounce your last name? Oh, girl, my God, you don't even try this. I'm not forget she came near hers my first name. Correctly, say my first name. COOLNESSA. Okay, yeah, that's it right. Yeah, really try. Yeah, but when I never call me, we say GG. I Call I'm the kind of person that just calls people by nicknames. I'm just thoughts me, like, I never call her by your last name. I don't call people by their names. My last name. Okay, so the first gh in, the last DH or...

...what? Fuck up the whole last name because it's very French. It's the back of the throat that the right. So it's gotta Chadory. Oh my goodness, I know girls. Yeah, that's beautiful, but I don't think I can say that. I know none of me in Texas. I'm sure there's enemy in Texas like not. We don't have that last name anywhere. Actually, it's not Persian, it's Turkish. It's interesting. It's my father's father's, obviously side that that we got the Turkish side at us, but it's a Turkish last name. So even in Persian people sometimes came and pronounce it correctly. It's a very long one. It's difficult. I was, for high school graduation, the person presenting diplomas. Single Day for a week. I had to go in for ten, fifteen minutes during lunch and practice with him to say my last name. He actually towards the end of the week he was like not too bad on stage. He could not have annihilated it anymore. is so nervous and it was like such a good man to started sweating and I was like, Dude, I'm here, I'm here, please stop this. We're going to take a quick break, but when we come back, he disrespected you. became drunk, like fuck you, I'm leaving the way. Yeah, that's different, but you like hurt that. I'm a bitch. I'm just I'm a bitch. I said he was hot at back. Guys do that two chicks all the time. Why can I be the guy doing it to the dude, I mean the girl. Be Get to do it to anyone. Now your little boy. It's Elijah, right, aasha. Yeah, Uh Huh, it's that. He used I breads me like Hebrew. After the sperm donor correct. It is he? After yeah, after Moses, was Elijah. I've always lived the name Elijah and love black name. By the way, it's still please. It's very strong, yes, and it's respected in so many different cultures and religions. It's written in so many religious books as a respected Prophet, holy person, Elijah. So yeah, he's so cute. Oh my God, Hallowe, you matching cows for Halloween. It was that cut when I put the cow part over my head. He's got mommy, no, no, no, and I had was any possible? I know my dad took my dad got the pictures with his like gigantic, like Long Lens Camera. My Dad is so cute. I love her. Dad's so Yo, my dad, can you send me the pictures? He's like I have two. Ay, my, but dad, I don't want to post it for Christmas. I want to post it in there for she was asking how old your Dada is. My Dad is seventy three, your boy, little boy. How old is Elijah? Now I hear Dad, eighteen months. You can tell me holy is she's actually she wants to hold your Dada. Is why Eli. Eli is eighteen months. He's exactly one and a half. Okay, he's the cutest thing. It was so fun making him and I joke around about it, but I'm so serious. I really do feel like I made the perfect little specimen of a child. I bought the best sperm. I looked high low for the best of it, you know, and I got my money's worth. I have a question. Can you be like? I want us from donors. WHO HAS BROWN HAIR? WHO's six street? So you can like tailor what work? Where we all? I asked for a saying you can so hyper detailed, like you have a long like psychanalysis with the company I hired. It's a concierge company. Wow, and you have a huge sit down conversation with him. You fill out forms and forms and forms, and it gets so detailed everywhere from like genetics, esthetically and internally. So it gets very detailed about that. And so I got it all the way...

...down to that like very tea of a specific and I said, I'm very anal about it. So I have to have photos. Yeah, majority of sperm donors do not have photos. I would say about eighty five ninety percent do not have photos, and the ones that do have photos have a photo of them at the age of five or six, when they don't. He had adult photo and childhood photos. I took one look. Oh my God, Damn, why might not dating this guy? Ha Ha, like what? But it's interesting. So only ten percent. That's a very low percentage. But but everything is in our in our society is so based on like looks and this some abow. You have to understand jarity of guys who are sperm donors statistically are donating when they're in college and then to make money. So that so it's not about I'm trying to help the world. This guy his whole he wrote an essay for the child and essay, a long story, novel that he wants one day for the child to have about why he decided to do this and why he's a donor. So it's most cases are not like that. They go, they pumped it up for it and they get like a underbus and they walk out or whatever it is. Wow, let's it's really weird building. It's like a build to bear workshop. I don't know if you always have those in Texas. Yeah, it's like a build a baby. That is just so crazy to me. Wow, well, you're doing it.

Women and and men out there need to understand it's you can do it. You can. Everyone you know has the choice to want to do it or not, and it's available to people. Yes, and I think two people. They think, Oh, I don't have the money to do that or this. There are ways to work around that and at the end of the day, like if you really want to be a parent, you know and you just go in and just check your body out. That's why number one advice to everyone to see what you're what's going on, and then take it from there. Doesn't have to be super scary up front. I was so scared at first. Yeah, canceled appointment, like a need like canceled, cancel, and then I just went and I'm like just go Freakin to the doctor and just see what your body's doing, and I'm so glad that I did.
