Vicky Pattison has revealed that she is preparing to take the next steps to become a parent after learning that her ovarian cyst has gone.
The former Geordie Shore star, 35, from Newcastle, took to Instagram with a photo of her smiling face with tears streaming down her cheeks as she shared the good news with her over 5 million followers.
Vicky has been very open on her social media platforms about her egg freezing journey, having begun tests to see if egg freezing was an option for her in April last year.
Ercan Ramadan, her fiancé, got down on one knee in February 2022 and the stunning couple are planning a 2024 wedding.
Vicky posted: “For those of you who’ve been following my egg freezing journey, you’ll know that at the start of the year we had a bit of a setback in the form of an ovarian cyst”.
“At today’s scan we found out that the cyst had gone and we are finally able to take our next steps to becoming parents one day 👶🏻💕💙,” she added.
Vicky shared a collection of pictures from her trip to the London Women’s Clinic, who have been supporting her throughout her journey.
The former reality TV star revealed that it had been an emotional experience, saying: “I’ve been feeling absolutely every single emotion over the last couple of days and as you can imagine when I got the good news I was completely over the moon but now all the nerves and anxiety that I was running on have left my body... I’m just knackered 😂”
Vicky explained to followers that she would be focusing on rest and will be spending the night curled up with partner, Ercan, and her dogs whilst watching a comforting film. She admitted that the whole experience had been a bit “overwhelming”.
She continued: “We are happy, grateful and a little bit apprehensive but ultimately really excited to take these next steps towards growing our family together ✨”
“To anyone else who isn’t quite where they thought they’d be with their fertility journey I just wanted to send you love, light and positivity 💕,” Vicky added.
Fans and friends were quick to comment on the star’s good news.
Ercan, to whom she got engaged last year, was the first to post saying: “Love you ❤️”
Mental health champion and former Love Island star, Dr Alex, said: “Always wishing you well and sending love ❤️ amazing human x”
