“There are some who look down on people that have fertility issues and need to use IVF. We have had fertility issues for years and had to use IVF,” he told Newsweek Europe.
The 38-year-old singer and his wife conceived their nine-month-old daughter Luna through in-vitro fertilization, which is where eggs are collected and fertilized by sperm in a lab, then implanted back into the woman’s uterus.
“Some people can’t reproduce naturally. We’re glad we had Luna the way we did, and hopefully we’ll have a few more kids through IVF,” John said. “We think it’s a viable issue for people having fertility issues and encourage people that can’t have kids the old-fashioned way to do it the way we’ve done it.”
The star also added that having “control” over reproduction is an important right for women.
“Having control over reproduction is one of the most important rights a woman has. Choosing when you want to have a child or not affects so much of your life and your body,” he said.
John’s comments come after Chrissy revealed the couple hope to add to their family in the future using IVF. She tweeted: “Since this is coming up again, I said our next baby would be a boy because that is the embryo we have left. A boy. So. Yeah. And no, I am not pregnant. (sic)”
Meanwhile, Chrissy was recently praised by fans when she proudly showed off her post-baby stretch marks on her legs.
