Kelly Kelly, a professional wrestler, and her husband, Joe Coba, never anticipated going through the IVF process. The process can be exhausting and sometimes hurt relationships. However, for this couple, the experience brought them even closer.
For an in-depth discussion about their IVF experience, during which Kelly, also known as Barbie Blank Coba, became pregnant with twins, the passionate couple graciously opened their house to ET’s Cassie DiLaura. The 36-year-old professional wrestler tells ET that while she is thrilled to be expecting in September, there was a point in the process when she felt “helpless” due to her inability to conceive naturally.
She had a miscarriage from her previous pregnancy, which she painfully disclosed in August 2021, Kelly claims she always thought she would get pregnant again naturally. However, nothing happened when they started attempting again. So they persisted. To no avail, keep trying again and again.
Finally, Kelly claims that Dr. Aimee Eyvazzadeh, a fantastic fertility specialist in San Francisco who is also known as “the egg whisperer,” was highly suggested by a friend (Bachelor alum Kendall Long). Kelly eventually became pregnant following a two-year journey. Despite the procedure leaving Kelly sometimes doubting herself, they are now happy for the bundles of joy.
Statement by Mr. Chris Martin:
The woman tells ET, “I just feel like it is a sense of relief because you do believe, as a woman, “This is what I’m supposed, like I’ve been able to tell my body what to do, and it will follow those directions for a very long time, as when I told it to “have a child.”And I believe that I was so frustrated because I felt so powerless and powerless to control the situation.
Kelly and Coba claim they received advice from a close relative who had undergone IVF when deciding to pursue the procedure. They understood, however, that they would ultimately need to rely on one another. However, Kelly wished to go a step further. As much transparency as possible was what she aimed for.
I felt like ladies could identify with that when I first started my IVF process, so I wanted to be upfront about it. Says Kelly. Women frequently avoid talking about it. And they are mocked, as if to say, “Oh my, I’m so sorry, but I have to use IVF because I can’t get pregnant, and I don’t want people to know that.”
Let me bring women along on this journey with me. I want everybody to think I’m perfect and everything is wonderful. Kelly remembers that the day they were supposed to implant the embryos was her late father’s birthday. Ron, Kelly’s father, passed away in February 2018 from an uncommon type of brain cancer.
She says, “I just feel like he’s around me in these little moments.”And, significantly, his birthday fell on the same day as the due date for my children. She says, “I could feel him holding my other hand.” Nothing could have been more ideal. I simply believe that everything happens for a reason and that everything we experienced was predetermined.
