Francia revealed during an appearance on The Talk that she went through a two-week process and had 28 eggs frozen, adding that following the process, she felt a relief o sorts that she doesn’t need to “rush” into anything now that she took that step.

“I don’t want to settle. I really want to wait for the right person. … I really want to be friends with someone first and really know you, because I don’t want to have to worry about that again ever,” Francia shared. “… Now I’m not in a rush to, you know, get into a relationship because my ‘biological clock is ticking.’ ”

She also opened up about how it wasn’t as easy as she thought.

“You’re basically pregnant. And I think the hardest part was, you know, I did get bigger and I didn’t have a baby. That was rough,” Francia adds. “… It was draining. I’m glad I did it, and I do suggest it to other women to do it. The recovery process is hard. I had a lot of great support — and now I’m not afraid of needles as much!”

“If you’re a working woman and you just want to take your time, I think it’s very smart,” Francia shared some of her advice about the process and also revealed that she was “very emotional” during it all.

“I cried all the time,” she admits. “I thought everyone hated me. I’m grateful to everyone at Grown-ish for being so patient with me while I was doing the whole process, because I would walk off set right at 5:45 to make sure I was injecting at 6 o’clock. It was definitely very emotional, and I’m glad that I’m not as crazy anymore.”

Francia joins Emma Roberts, Becca Kufrin and Chrishell Stause in freezing her eggs.
