"Cats" actress Rebel Wilson, 41, recently had fans surrounding her with warmth and support following a surprising revelation about her health on Instagram.


Recently, actress Rebel Wilson touched many hearts when she revealed her struggle with a topic many can relate to: fertility complications. In a deep, touching post on her Instagram, the actress shared:

"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."

Wilson revealed that she recently got saddening news and had no one to share it with, adding that she needed to tell someone and decided to do so with her loving and loyal fans.

Concluding her short but eye-opening caption, Wilson ended on a hopeful and encouraging note. She wrote that she hopes there is a light waiting to shine through all the sad, dark clouds.


The caption accompanied a solemn photo of Wilson standing on some rocks, clad in an all-black outfit of pants and a hoodie. She had a somber expression on her face as she looked away from the camera.

In no time, the actress's fans and followers came through for her, offering the kindest words of comfort and encouragement. The overwhelming love and support were uplifting.

Wilson's recent fertility struggle revelation is not the first time that she has shared such personal details about her health.


Wilson's surprising revelation came only months after she shared her decision to freeze her eggs. In December, she opened up about the decision during an Instagram Live.

According to her, it is a great strategy for many people, especially career women, and advised that they consider it before they reach later years like their 40s. She also added that anyone who is considering it should do it as early as possible. 


Wilson's recent fertility struggle revelation is not the first time she shared such personal details about her health. The actress openly spoke about her battle with Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome, a condition she was diagnosed with at age 20. 

This condition led to her rapidly gaining weight over the years alongside many other effects. Wilson's life took a turn in 2020 when she decided that she would start putting more work into being healthy.

Terming it her "Year of Health," the "Pitch Perfect" star started an inspiring weight loss journey and lifestyle change. In November 2020, she officially reached her goal weight after losing 60 pounds. 

Her courageous and incredible journey inspired many fans. All through her year of health, Wilson had the best support system from her friends and fans as they cheered her on.
