In the interview, Stause revealed she has ‘taken the steps to freeze my eggs,’ adding that she hopes having a family ‘is still a possibility for me.’

Chrishell opting to freeze her eggs comes just weeks after the end of her divorce was played out on the cameras on her hit Netflix show Selling Sunset.

The beauty was blindsided by husband Justin Hartley when he filed for divorce  in November 2019 after two years of marriage and then told her via text message.

The gorgeous star said that she wanted to take the pressure off of herself as well as her future partner about starting a family: ‘I’m going to do everything I can to take that power in the situation, and hopefully, that will empower me going forward in the dating world, so there’s not so much pressure.’ 

‘I definitely had a different idea for where I would be at this age and stage in my life. There’s a family aspect that I’m missing that I hope is still a possibility for me,’ she told the outlet.

Chrishell said: ‘Everything happens for a reason. I’m grateful for the twists and the turns, as painful as they’ve been.’ 

She said that she was preparing to freeze her eggs when she was approached by DWTS.

Explaining that: ‘I was in the middle of the process when DWTS approached me. So for the first weeks of rehearsal, I was giving myself daily hormone shots while learning the tango, and procedure was done a few days before the premiere of the show.’

She jokingly added: ‘Maybe I could blame that on my less than stellar tango! Just kidding – I will always suck at the tango.’ 

This Monday, Chrishell and her DWTS pro partner Gleb Savchenko danced as Cinderella and Prince Charming for the show’s annual Disney night. 

On August 7, season three of Selling Sunset premiered on the streaming giant Netflix. 

During the season, Chrishell learned her husband Justin Hartley filed for divorce on season three of the drama series, and cameras were on hand to capture the emotional aftermath.

He requested that she pay her own lawyer fees and that he does not pay Chrishell spousal support. 

In December, a source told People that the duo did have ‘some problems, but she certainly never thought he would just go and suddenly file for divorce, and not even try to save things.’

Adding: ‘He’s reached a new level of fame thanks to [This Is Us] and he doesn’t want to close many doors right now, and that’s not necessarily the path Chrishell is looking to take. She thought babies would happen soon after they got married, but it just hasn’t worked out.’ 

The insider for the outlet noted that ‘Justin has already been married and divorced once before. But Chrishell had been in other serious relationships in the past … and didn’t take them further because she was always adamant that when she got married, it would be forever — she was only going to do this once.’

They dated for three years before marrying because of this: ‘It’s partly why she and Justin waited so long to get married: she wanted to be sure that when they said their vows, they meant them. And she did — she would have stayed forever.’

Six months after he filed for divorce, Justin, 43, was seen locking lips with his former The Young and The Restless co-star Sofia Pernas, 30. 

In July 2020, Chrishell filed to have her maiden name of Stause restored legally and Hartley removed from her legal name, according to The Blast
