Women who have experienced fertility struggles know that the subject is not always easy to talk about — but model and actress Molly Sims is ready to break the silence. The mother-of-three sat down with Closer Weekly at the MitoQ Launch at Catch NYC on Wednesday, where she explained what made her want to take her personal experience public.
"I think now it's much more open, but I think it's open because people are talking about it. It's not an easy path, and I think a lot of it's hidden, and there are a lot of things out there. As much as 'it takes a village' when you have children, I think now 'it takes a village' to have a child," Molly explained.

She then added, "I just think it's really important to be there for women. I researched a lot, I worked with really good doctors, I learned a lot — and I wanted to share that information and I don't want it to be some dirty little secret."

Molly married Scott Stuber in 2011 and together they have three children — five-year-old son, Brooks, two-year-old daughter, Scarlett, and seven-month-old son, Grey. Before tying the knot, the Las Vegas alum froze her eggs and before conceiving naturally, she tried IVF two times.

“Honestly I got pregnant on my honeymoon! I think because we had froze, and because I had in the back of my mind a safety blanket — a safety net — I got pregnant,” she previously shared in a video for her YouTube channel, later adding, "We tried IVF twice with Scarlett. I was just about to do another round, and there you go, there was Scar!”
