Home and Away actress Emily Symons was spotted taking a walk in the Sydney sunshine last week. She and boyfriend Paul Jackson expect their first child in August. After going through various bouts of IVF the 45-year-old was ecstatic to discover she was pregnant.
Speaking to Australia‘s Daily Telegraph:
“I very much thought it couldn’t happen and I was too old.
“I thought it would be impossible but it isn’t. I’d given up really, I thought I had tried every avenue that was available to us. My advice is to not give up if you’re feeling a bit overwhelmed by the whole process.”
Although the former Emmerdale star did admit that going through the process can be hard.
“It is very difficult when you are doing it because obviously there are only two results and only one of them is good.
“It is a waiting game and it is very gruelling on your emotions and your relationship. I am so inspired by what women go through to achieve their dream, to become pregnant and have a family, you’ve got to be prepared to do that stuff to get the baby.”
