Michelle Ye preserves her eggs for surrogacy
9 Jan – Actress-producer, Michelle Ye is not rushing to get married and have kids, as she revealed recently that she has preserved her eggs a few years ago.
HK Channel reported that the 33-year-old actress, who recently sat down for an interview, revealed that she had spent hundreds of thousands to undergo oocyte cryopreservation in the United States, a technology where a woman's eggs are extracted, frozen, stored, and can be transferred into the uterus when she is ready to have a baby.
"This way, I can still have children even after I'm 80!" said the actress.
Michelle said that she knew it would be best for a woman to bear a child in her '30s to avoid difficulties, but believed that freezing her eggs would be the best choice.
"Life is full of stress nowadays, so the best thing is to preserve your eggs, fertilise them and use the help of a surrogate mother. I am no longer worried now that I have made the plan. I can have a lot of children as I want," she enthused.
When asked if she has plans to settle down, "The Purple Hairpin" actress revealed that she is in no rush to tie the knot, and hopes to find balance in her personal life and her career as an artiste.
In regards to rumours of romance with her co-star in "The Ninth Window", Li Dongxue, Michelle replied, "It's not true. None of them are true. I am too busy and I have not met anyone yet. Since I am also the producer, I would not encourage work romance."
