“Whatever will be, will be.”

Rebel Wilson has again opened up about her struggles with fertility, describing the journey to parenthood as an “emotional rollercoaster.”

Speaking to the Daily Telegraph’s Stellar magazine, the actress discussed her recent lifestyle changes and how she has been working on making positive improvements to her mental and physical health.

The 41-year-old shared that the aim of getting pregnant was a huge motivation for her health journey.

“I’ve been going through a fertility journey for the past two years and I’m hoping at some point I may have a family of my own,” she said.

“But it’s still a bit unclear whether that’ll be the case. I feel like (it’s) not over yet. It’s kind of an emotional roller coaster.

“But I’ve been trying my best, so whatever will be, will be.”

The Pitch Perfect star has previously been open about her fertility struggles on social media, which she has thanked for “creating connection” when she was in “a very lonely place.”

Last December, Rebel chatted about her decision to freeze her eggs during an Instagram Live.

“As all good career women out there should know, if that’s something that interests you, it’s a pretty good time to do it,” she said during the livestream.

“Getting to 40s is kind of even leaving it a little too late. It’s better to do it a bit earlier if you can.”

Back in May of this year, she opened up further about bad news she received in her journey to parenthood.

“I got some bad news today and didn’t have anyone to share it with… but I guess I gotta tell someone,” she wrote on Instagram.

“To all the women out there struggling with fertility, I feel ya. The universe works in mysterious ways and sometimes it all doesn’t make sense… but I hope there’s light about to shine through all the dark clouds.”

Fair play to Rebel for consistently being so open about an issue that so many can relate to and letting others know they’re not alone.
