Rebel Wilson recently revealed she's just a few pounds away from her weight-loss goal and it turns out that’s not the only body plan she’s made for the future.

The Pitch Perfect actress, 40, is in an exciting new romance with boyfriend, Jacob Busch, but even before she met him she’d put plans in place for a baby.

Because Rebel froze her eggs in 2019 so she can potentially become a mum if, and when, the time is right.

The Australian star appeared on Kyle and Jackie O radio show in 2019 after visiting the fertility clinic and talked about her decision: "It’s a backup plan," she said.

"Career women now have options. I think a lot of women who are in their 30s and if they can do it, in their 40s should think about doing it now. A lot of my friends in Hollywood are doing it."

Rebel has never publicly talked in-depth about her hopes for motherhood, but she has just embarked on a new venture as a children’s book author.
