Olivia Munn Shares She Underwent a Hysterectomy Amid Cancer Battle


She told Vogue that while a full hysterectomy was a big decision, it was the best one for her, adding, “I needed to be present for my family.”

While the actress won’t be able to become pregnant, she and John still plan to expand their family through surrogacy. Munn told Vogue she froze her eggs three times since age 33, and most recently last year after learning she had breast cancer, and that “two healthy embryos” were created from her latest round of IVF.

“A surrogate isn’t a scary prospect to me anymore because there’s nothing I can do,” Munn said. “I don’t have the ability to carry a baby anymore, so if we want to build our family, this is our option.”

She continued, “This journey has made me realize how grateful I am to have options for not only fighting cancer, but also having more children if we want, because I know a lot of people don’t have those options.”

After Munn’s interview was posted, John paid tribute to his partner on his Instagram Stories. “My son has the most incredible mommy and he knows it,” the comedian wrote. “It’s the most loving and silliest relationship I’ve ever seen. Happy Mother’s Day, Liv.”
