“Knowing Julianne has endometriosis, it could potentially make things challenging in the future to conceive naturally,” Brooks, 36 told People, explaining why they choose IVF.
He continued, “That was just us looking at the big picture and what we want as a family.”
Brooks also revealed Julianne, 30, froze some of her eggs in 2018. “The commitment that she made to us having a family is something I’ll never forget,” he added.
The NHL player told the magazine that Julianne had three shots a day for two weeks and was overwhelmed by mood swings.
He revealed, “As a husband, I just go into full support mode. Whatever my wife needs, whatever I can do, I’m fighting the smallest portion of the fight with her.”
“There are certain things in my wife’s life that I know she appreciates that help her feel calm and help her feel relaxed, so I double those efforts during that time just to show that I’m there with her and I support her,” Brooks said.
Julianne previously revealed she’s been suffering from endometriosis pain since she was 15.
