Priyanka Chopra appeared in the recent episode of the podcast Armchair Expert with American actor-filmmaker Dax Shepard. She opened up about freezing her eggs on the advice of her mother. She discussed how it was an imperative move going forward in her career and also that she had not met the person she wanted to have children with.


She got candid about the reason for her decision to freeze her eggs:

“I felt such freedom, I did it in my early thirties and I could continue on an ambitious warpath, I wanted to achieve, and I wanted to get to a certain place in my career.”
Priyanka Chopra, Actor

The actor continued, “Also, I had not met the person I wanted to have children with. So, with that anxiety-inducing, and with my mom who is an obstetrician-gynaecologist going, ‘36…just do it'.”

The Bajirao Mastani actor also said, “I always knew I wanted kids and that was one of the reasons I didn't want to date Nick because I was like I don't know if he would want kids at 25. I love kids, I have worked with kids at UNICEF, and I have volunteered at kids' hospitals. I am like a kid whisperer, and I would rather spend time with children than with adults. I love kids, all our parties are kids and dogs friendly. At our house, you can bring them anytime.”

Meanwhile, on the work front, Priyanka will be next seen in the Russo Brothers' series Citadel, co-starring Richard Maddenfilmmaker Jim Strouse's Love Again, co-starring Celine Dion and Sam Heughan; and Farhan Akhtar's Jee Le Zaraa, alongside Alia Bhatt and Katrina Kaif.
