Celebrity Chef Katie Lee Revealed Heartbreaking Struggle on Instagram: Katie Lee is a Celebrity chef and Food Network star. She disclosed her heartbreaking infertility struggles on\u00a0Instagram\u00a0as a way to open the conversation for those who are struggling with issues in having their own children.\r\n\r\nThe Kitchen star, who trades recipes and tips alongside Sunny Anderson, Jeff Mauro and Iron Chef Geoffrey Zakarian, revealed her story on her social media page, hoping to inspire and educate others. Lee revealed that the genesis of this post came after well-meaning people kept asking her when she and husband Ryan Biegel would be starting their own family.\r\n\r\nThe couple has been married since 2018. She was previously married to singer and songwriter Billy Joel from 2004-2010. Lee and Joel had no children during their marriage.\r\n\r\nShe posted a extremely long post on Instagram with a picture of herself.\r\n\r\nKatie Lee said, get multiple messages a day asking me if I\u2019m pregnant or why I am not pregnant yet. I get comments saying I look like I\u2019ve gained weight, so I must be pregnant. After one said that I looked \u201cthick in the waist\u201d I finally responded that it\u2019s not ok to comment on a woman\u2019s body and you never know what someone is going through. There is so much pressure on women to look a certain way and while most mean well with baby questions, it can be hurtful. Many of you sent me messages sharing your personal stories of fertility issues. You helped me, so now I want to share my story with you.\r\n\r\nWhen Ryan and I got married, our plan was to start a family right away. I couldn\u2019t wait to get pregnant! I naively thought it would be easy. I\u2019m a healthy woman, I eat a balanced diet, exercise, I don\u2019t smoke. Ryan is the same. But reproductive health is an entirely different ballgame.\r\n\r\nWe were trying, I had to have surgery to correct a problem, got an infection, then I was so run down I got shingles. My doctor advised us to try iVF. We just finished the intense process only to get zero healthy embryos. Not only is iVF physically exhausting, the emotional toll is unparalleled. We were filled with hope and excitement only to be crushed.\r\n\r\nIt is really hard to put on a happy face. Fertility issues are supposed to be private so many of us are silently in pain. I hesitated to share this but I feel comfort when I hear others\u2019 stories and I hope any of you in a similar situation know you are not alone. When people ask me when I\u2019m getting pregnant, it hurts. It\u2019s just a reminder that I\u2019m not. When they say I look like I\u2019ve gained weight, I have. I can\u2019t exercise as much and the hormones have made me bloated.\r\nAt church on Easter, the priest started his sermon with a story about a family struggling to have a baby and the happiness they are now experiencing that their prayers have been answered. He said it is a time of new beginnings. Tears streamed down my face.\r\n\r\nI know a family will happen for us, it is just going to be a different journey than we imagined. We will keep working towards it. Someday we will have our happy new beginning and I pray any of you experiencing the same will have yours too.\r\n\r\nhttps:\/\/www.instagram.com\/p\/BwpmzTop8a1\/?utm_source=ig_web_copy_link\r\n\r\nShe then revealed that she and her husband had explored In-Vitro Fertilization. According to the\u00a0Mayo Clinic\u2019s official website, the procedure entails the collection of mature eggs from a woman\u2019s ovaries, which is helped by hormones a woman takes to assist the process. The eggs are then fertilized by sperm in a lab. Once the eggs are impregnated by the sperm, they are implanted in a woman\u2019s uterus.\r\n\r\nhttps:\/\/www.instagram.com\/p\/BwPd1R6pDl7\/?utm_source=ig_web_copy_link\r\n\r\n \r\n\r\nAccording to\u00a0People Magazine, Lee and Biegel met while he was a producer on her Food Network show\u00a0Beach Bites.\u00a0Their relationship developed quickly, the twosome realizing they had a love of food, and adventure and wanted to share their lives with one another.\r\n\r\nhttps:\/\/www.instagram.com\/p\/BoZTX1rgQsN\/?utm_source=ig_web_copy_link\r\n\r\nBiegel and Lee became engaged in March 2018 and tied the knot in September 2018 in Italy.
