"It's great that the technology exists. You have so many options with surrogacy and sperm donors. I only started thinking of fertility when I was 39 so you feel quite late but then there are women in their mid-40s who've been successful. Look at Janet Jackson, it's pretty inspiring," she shared.

Speaking to People magazine, the 42-year-old also shared that it was her doctor's words that made her realize she wanted to get healthier for her "future child's needs".

"It wasn't a goal to get to a certain weight," she says. "It was just being the healthiest version of myself. It was about dealing with the emotional issues that caused me to emotionally eat, and that's a process."

Rebel shared that she cried a lot and began to "analyze" her life: "It's really hard to know why you don't feel worthy when people look at my life on paper and say you've done all these amazing things. That's what I'm trying to overcome."

Rebel is looking towards motherhood 

Rebel lost over 80lbs after she began her year of health in 2020 which saw her reconsider her eating habits, and focus on exercise including hiking and surfing.

She recently shared that she is "happily in a relationship," after being introduced via a set-up. "He had known both of us for at least five years and he thought we would hit it off – and then we did!" she told the U Up podcast.

"I think that escalates things quicker, meeting someone from a trusted source. I can trust that they are who they say they are, which is something that you don’t really know on the apps."
